Ltr 450 vs Trx 450

Hey guys,

So my roommate is goin to look at an 06 ltr 450 either today or tomorrow and he's wonderin if theirs any known issues the ltr's have. (similar to the 04-05 crank issue and 06+ trans). The quad looks super clean and only has a pipe, tires, and new handle bars other than that is bone stock. I personally have never ridden one, and am just curious to how it would compare to my 08 450er.

Thanks guys.

Supposedly the 06s have a tranny problem but my buddy hasnt had any with his. Its been beat on for most of its life and its just barely needing a top end put in. As for the race ill smoke him off the line since hes geared too high and we'll end up being dead even at high speeds.

the crank issues on the 04/05 450R is more a thing of the past now that most have updated cranks with the problem solved. the tranny issues with the 06+ 450R is more a issue with higher HP builds. the LTR has the tranny issues also but im sure its also more with higher HP builds. if you ask me the 450R and LTR450 are the best 2 450s. all the 450s have some sort of issue here and there
