Hi guys, ive been thinking of getting a 450r but was interested in hearing the common issues the bike has, ie: Frame, electrical/wiring, engine/drivetrain, and suspension issues. The only complaint ive heard so far is the frame could use gusseted, but I would like to hear more from a group of owners such as yourselves, thanks.

My personal machines i have lost transmissions on 06+ and had electrical problems and a cracked frame. On my 04/05 bikes i have not had any issues other than nomal repair. I have updated the crank from the day i bought them to avoid issues.

Depends on the year.

04/05 - Many crank failures.

06+ - Weak transmissions (when the engine makes a lot of power).
good to know , thanks..

Can anybody help me, I gotta 05 450r and I'm having crank issues, I've cleaned the carb and put a new spark plug in and still won't crank! Can anybody help?!?
First off when it was said they have crank issues it meant that the crankshafts go bad on them. Anywho check if your getting fuel and spark and if its got that then check compression and the cam timing.
