If I had to buy a 450 it would be a Maico 450 AW.
Otherwise I would just buy the 250F that I could get the best deal on.

Chuck Norris is 1/8th Scottish. This has nothing to do with ancestry, the man ate a fucking Scotsman!

2010 Kaw or 2008 Honda.



If you go Honda, install some black rims. Perhaps some red hubs.

Renthal grips. Medium spicy. Dunlop 756. Hell, buy a bar-pad.

Money no object? KTM for sure.

I have ridden a few of the new models, and unlike some, I actually really like the Honda.

Choose which one you get the best deal on and go for it.

Just got off the Kawi 450 and got on the Hondas.He said it was the best choice he could have made and he was on Kawis for over 16 years.

If you are buying a left over model and can find one buy the 08 CRF. If you want an 010 buy the KTM. Why would anyone buy a bike other than the best bike that year in it's class? No matter what you buy you will have to put a little dough into it to get it exactly where you want it. Start with the best package available.

Are we gonna ride or are we gonna mess around all day?

Service Kawasaki KX500AF...

You said 450 eater, right?

After owning 4 KTM's....I beg to differ...but thats My opinion

I have two and have had no problems out of either one. They have the best brakes, electric start, The engines last forever (not counting the 144) They come with unbreakable levers and hydraulic clutches. What bad experiences have you had?

again, completely disagree with you, from My experience.... but great that they work for you.
The one and only one thing i will agree on is the brakes...and thats probably becasuse it's NOT KTM brakes, its Brembo.

I also HATED the hydrolic clutch....

I'll never buy another one..ever!

1/13/2010 9:13 AM

been thinking of selling my 07 crf450, love that bike, and getting a 10 ktm450... only thing holding me back is the lack of EFI on the ktm

That's interesting!

What didn't you like about the clutch? My only issue with it was that if I really abused it (I did a few enduro's and cross country events), then it would fade a little. I did bleed mine quite often as well. I preferred it to the hydraulic clutch I had on my TMs.

The only issues I had with the KTMs I owned were fork seals on my '98 250exc (on those big 50mm forks) and I broke two back wheels racing mx. Other than that, the KTMs were bulletproof.

Was the hydraulic clutch you had on your TMs a Grimeca or a Hebo? I found the Hebo clutch way nicer than the Magura. The Grimecas seemed pretty cobbly.
My TM came with a Magura clutch which I never cared for all that much, but it was just as good as a KTM.
