The 450 is a little easier to ride in the woods than the 530, but it's in the same zip code for sure. Try your 530, if you don't like it, you won't like a 450. If you do, you might like a 400/450 a little better.
I love it. I ride the gnarliest stuff I can find on it happily, have raced TSCEC stuff on it, I found my 300 stayed parked all the time. YMMV
Ned, rumour has it you are visiting my neck of the woods pretty soon...If you want to go for a ride in the Canadian Shield singletrack after you're done with that logging road stuff, drop me a line.
I'll loan you my KLR
