I'm thinking about possible getting this 450. Its super clean and has low hours. HAS ALL AROUND Re-valved ENZO SUSPENSION WITH SUB TANKS, BLACK EXCEL A60 RIM SET, BLACK TWINWALL RENTHALS, FULL TI-4 PRO CIRCUIT EXHAUST SYSTEM, BRAN NEW REAR 404 TIRE, STAINLESS BRAIDED FRONT BRAKE CABLE WITH SUNLINE FLEX LEVER AND PRO CIRCUIT TRIPLE CLAMPS.... The guy is asking $3,200. Do you think i would be better off with this bike woods ridding in southern oregon? or stick with the 250? My 250 is pretty much bone stock and by the looks of it I will need to dump at least 1500 into it to get it woods worthy. My 250 needs suspension, handlebars, hand guards, tires, flywheel weight, ims tank, pipe and silencer etc etc... I kinda like the idea of better fuel mileage and the upgraded suspension the 450 has got. Plus its already got exhaust and lots of other bolt ons already on it... But it not fuel injected. What do you guys think?

A 450 is quite a step up in power, have you been on a 450 in the woods? not being fuel injected could be a blessing in the woods and the mpg will be a little better. The price for a 7 yr. old bike seems high to me.

when buying a used bike you can't factor in suspension... if you want your bike to ride good you need it valved for you someone elses valving will just mess you up. it may be set for pro motorcross or full novice woods. unless hes your twin and you both have identical riding styles it's useless. better then stock but not good. and if it's not fuel injected it's a what 2007-2008 maybe idk. but for that year and price you could pick up a sweet KTM thats actually built for normal people. not ryan v at 134lbs

purely just my opinion...but I think getting genital warts would be much more fun....but that's coming from someone who despises 4Ts....and Harleys.

I'm starting to think that hanging on to the 250 would be a better idea. If I feel like I need more power I can always go with a 300 kit...

300 is a good number. cost me like 350-400 to rebuild mine last time, crank bearings all new seals and a new slug to be safe
