Suzuki 450s are nice bikes" they run really good with just a pipe an the cherrybomb box" or whatever they call it" I think its like a hipo chip for them" but like they say,the trannys are crap in them things. But they look good"

I went from a raptor 700r 2006 model shaved head, pcm, lid mod, k&n, race gas, liked it but too much weight for trail riding with 450's, you have to man handle a raptor in the woods to maintain with the 450's. It will wear you out. Then went to a suzuki ltz400 tricked out, fast as heck, sold it got a honda 450r acquired from a buddy and never rode it. I was going to get off into the MX racing but finances screwed up, Bought an 07 LTR450 tricked out with a special mod done to head pipe and exhaust pipe, cherry bomb, hotcams, and thats fast enough, no pcm going on it. Love it, love the width, the look. The honda 450r is what I am parting out, its got all the goodies from Hinson, Axxis custom air shocks, Lonestar arms, Lonestar steering stem assembly, I have not taken the motor apart yet to vrify all the goods inside. The gear shift lever got stuck in between a chain when put on the trailer and yanked it out the side of the casing(BAD thing) so I said the heck with it because I saw that ltr450 I wanted anyways because it looked so sweeeeeet.

I love my Ltr. I bought it new in 07 and it has well over 200 hrs on it and I have never had a minutes troubles with the tranny. I actually ran it with the stock piston, cherry bomb, and no but plug untill a month or so ago. Put a 13:1 and a HC stage 1 in it.it helped it alot, though its not near as fast as my 450r with a stroker crank and 14:1. I use the ltr for duning /jumping which it is excellent for and my Honda for hill shooting. Both are amazing quads and I don't think you could go wrong with either one

Im the original owner of my 2006 LTR. I put many hours dune and desert riding. Never had any major problems. Im not easy on my LTR's transmission, when at the dunes I use my clutch half the time. I ride my wheelers pretty hard but keep up on maintenance. Going on five years on all original (engine) parts its just a matter of time when it takes a dump? From what I read the 06' and 07' models actually have the stronger transmissions. I think the LTR (with a tune, or re-jet with a cherry bomb or Power Commander) is faster and handles better then the 450R in stock form.
