crf 450

hello i am considering joining the dark side and tracking my 929 blade and having a crf 450 for small road trips and green laning.

anything i should look out for when buying and also i would change the oil every other ride out but other than that what servicing should i look at doing to avoid the big rebuilds occuring quite so often?

bit of a newbie into the off road/ supermoto world as only had a yz125 for motorcross before and that didnt last long as me and big jumps didnt mix lol.

any advice and help will be greatly recieved

Re: crf 450

Man I have a crf 450 but its dirt only if I were you I would look into something biger like a 650. I love my crf but once you gear it up for road the bottom just isn't there. Now I'm honda for life but if I was geting something in the supermoto line I would haft to go ktm, 525 already set up and run good.

Re: crf 450

hmmm ive heard this from a couple of my mates who have had 450's in the past. they said ill constantly have to look for backroads to get to places as even shortish constant high speed runs will kill it aparantly.

may have to look into the ktm route but wanted a honda.gota love the quality and reliability you see.

a few nice 510's on the bay and ill take a look at the bigger one too.

anythings going to be fun i should imagine
