so here's deal the after racing crf's for 7 seaons I'm buying a 450 in a box, so just how reliable are the things, I've only two mechanical dnf's in 7 seasons, do i really need to buy a vdb instead of a standard, also my crf currently put's out 64hp at wheel can I expect to get that kind hp reliably? thanx hwood SMUSA#69

a 450 with exhaust should be close to that kind of power if not more. the 450's are very reliable from what i hear, my friend has close to 15k on his 06. are you running moto or smx. the VDB is a supermoto and it handles much better than the stock sxv.
