wrf450 for me?

hey im 15, 16 may next year, 155 lbs. i am looking at buying a wrf450 for a bike to ride on the road when i get my license. my uncle owns a 2005 wrf450 and he doesnt use it at all. i am thinking it is a great opportunity for me to buy. do you guys think this bike will suit me? i have been riding motorbikes for atleast 3-4 years (ttr 125, yzf 426, rm 125).

opinions muchly appreciated thanx!

I don't see any reason why not. It is a good and reliable bike. Getting more out of engine is also easy.

ok cool!

about the maintanance side of things. how much work are the wrf450s? meaning oil changes, spark plug, valves?

help appreciated. thanx

It will be no different than any other bike that you want to keep in good shape. Frequent oil changes, cleaning/oiling the air filter, washing the bike, etc.... just like any other bike. Keep it well maintained and it will last you for a long time.

ok sounds good!

just one question. after how many hours should i have change the oil?

around 20hrs is good for oil change, if you wanna be picky 10 to 15hrs.

I change sparkplug about once a year. I have driven over 150 hrs with mine and I check valves every 30 hrs but still no change on clearance.

If you're going to dual sport, I'd go by mileage rather than hours for your oil interval. If it were me, I'd change it every 200 miles. It's only a little over quart, so it's not a big deal. You can probably do the filter every 2nd or 3rd change...SC

sounds fairly straight forward.

i have been thinkin, all my mates have crf250rs and some have 125s. do u guys think il be able to keep up with them or will they kain me off?

i ride mostly trails with them, i also ride flat tracks and occasionly ride tight cornered tracks!

anyone?

anyone?

You'll have no problem keeping up... :crazy:

ok lets hope so..

do the wr450fs have a higher top speed than the crf250r?

Depends on gearing but I would say yes

A 250F will smoke you in the tight stuff. Actually, the 250F's will smoke you in just about everything.

But then again, you want the bike to ride it on the road (legally). :crazy:

In a drag race, yes.

You will learn very quickly that straight line speed doesn't count for much at all. :crazy:

hey this is it ^^ if that doesnt work look in my garage!

my uncle wants $8000 AUD for it. 2005 model, 2570 kms, no scratches visible, ver well maintained and well looked after!

do you think $8000 grand is a reasonable price or is he ripping me off?

$8k is OK but a bit high. Especially being family and all. :D

WR's go for a high price over here.

I'd try and squeese him down to $7k. That would be a bargain. :crazy:

thanx for that! great info!

wat do u guys think of the bike?

Looks good. As long as it's been looked after, should be good.

If you truely intend to register it, it would suit you.

Make sure you find out if it is learner legal on the road first though. :crazy:
