Hey guys im new to this bike forum. i had a question on the 450r. Im pretty familiar with it but I ve been wanting to buy a 450x so i cant get out in the desert and pretty much do more distance longer desert trips. So i was comparing the 450r and the 450x and i know the compresion is the same the gear ratio is different and some suspension is a a bit diff. i was wondering can you change 450r and make it to were it can be able to run with 450x and make it similar and maybe race able.thanks let me know guys.
