all of the 450's will run 70-75 stock, they are geared for power so they get there quick, with sprockets you should be able to get more. Down low power is most fun on a quad though.

get used to using a feeler guage and checking your valves religiously. Those 450's are not bred for top end street use for extended periods, though they will do it if properly maintained. if you want to do a little more motard reading, visit www.supermotojunkie.com

i just got a 450 and have a 650. the xr650 is an offroad dirtbike while most of the 450's are motocross dirtbikes.. i VERY HIGHLY suggest getting an offroad style dirtbike like an XR, WR, DRZ rather than a CRF, YZF, etc.. they are more made for the type of riding you will want to do. face it- in houston you'll have to ride on the highways most of the time. my xr will pull just over 100mph. it has 43 RWHP and weighs almost 380lbs without me. it is geared up from 15/45 to 15/40. stock gearing would run about 88-90, but i changed to bring the cruising RPM's down, not to gain top speed.
hope this helps!

I've got a CRF450 I'm looking to part with. I love it but never ride it any more. They feel like they might just do 60 in motocross trim and get there real quick, they are no slouches.

I can get about 6 days at a dirt track on a new rear tire and I can feel when the knobs round off. The 450's are monsters and can tear through tires, It can tear the knobs off cheap tires. I'm 260 pounds and feel like a rag doll on this thing, Especially because it's not stock. It's got Factory Connection Suspension, Oversize Brakes, FMF Ti4 + powerbomb.

There is a picture at.

Scott is right, the CRF is not made for highway use. I am not saying it cant be done but it would require a lot of work to keep it up. There are better bikes out there for highway use. Thats why I went with the XR that I got. It is proven durable for highway use and heck it won the baja 1000 what more could you ask for. Ok it could have better suspention, new plastics, and more color options than just red.
