    Nice looking bike!

    Check out this new website dualsportmoto.com
    geared more toward those of us with "smaller" dualsport bikes with a really bitchin GPS mapping tool.

    Selling my dualsport headlight:

    Fellow crf450x riders, I'm trying something different on my 450x and need to get rid of the Baja Designs front headlight. Very good condition. $60
    Can't find a good picture but the classifieds link below will give you a picture of what it is. No major scratches or scuffs. The headlight is actually all white, as I took off all the stickers.

    Here's how I mounted my rear fender after I took off the ugly Baja Designs rear LED and plate mount.

    @ Michelangelo
    i can go with my 450x on 13/48 gearing around 200km to 250km on the road at 90km/h - 100km/h from 140km/h topspeed.
    (i never ride it to reserve, so its all just aestimated.)
    but dont forget i have the 3.6 gallon tank from ims and when you go offroad its less. i dont remember but i think it was 150km to 200km.
    offroad i keep the tank full at all places its possible to get fuel because you never now when you can buy more.

    Just did the '10 Baja1000 & our '06 CRF450X totally rocked it. It's got some mods, precision concepts suspension, B-D headlight, full procircuit exh w/ jetting, Twin-air filter, IMS tank, Cycra gaurds, bashplate, etc, etc, but otherwise it's motor/trans/wheels/frame etc is stock.
    After 1069 miles it still ran like a champ & we took 6th in SPRT>250. What an amazing bike & I'm just astounded a virtually stock bike can take 30+ hours of that kind of abuse & still run so well afterwards. I've become a Honda CRF450X believer.

    I'm buying a couple BRPs from a guy but also have a chance to buy a 2006 CRF450x for $2800 OBO..could probably get it for 2k. It was laid on its side on the first ride and not touched since...looks brand new.

    What would the resale be on this bike?

    Thanks

    Yeah thats what i had figured, maybe even less. I've seen NICE 07s for 2700. KBB is useless to me. Well....I might pick it up. Already getting three BRPs today...

    Yeah if you can get one for $2700 at that year, go for it! Good deal. I just bought my bro's well appointed bike in the pics above for $3000. I think he paid $3200 or 3300 a few years ago. It's a 2005. But it's got Scotts Stabilizer, Works Connection skid plate...etc.


    Where are all you 450x guys at? Let's get this thread moving.


    OH yeah, where North of PHX are you? I'm passing down through there to visit family in Tucson area next month. I was just down there in Sept too.
