I guess at the end of the day Duke you buy the best bike you can afford on your budget. It's a second hand bike or third hand or whatever so your going to spend money on it. somethings going to need attention or adjusting to suit your style.

I say if you've had a run on it and you comfy with the power delivery and everything seems alright, Go For It! best to get a mate or someone you trust just to throw an eye over it for some peace of mind.

Just remember your going to be throwing a 500 thru the bush and they can take some muscling around till you get comfy with it.

Once again IMO if it's in the budget and checks out and your happy with it have a go!

Cheers Tef.

I wasnt going to ride it i was just going to drag it round on a trailer!!! Pmsl... To me it's enough to have in a bike just for a thrash at weekends! So I am cool with it I just want to enjoy it lol!! If I spend ten grand on one and chuck it in a bog I will be gutted!, so this way I get to ride a bike again...well until I am too tired to pick it up!!! occasion14

The difference in weight between a 525 and a 450 would be 2 parts of fark all,
Horsepower is controlled by the Throttle so just don,t twist it as far , problem solved
One of the biggest things to learn when your starting out is throttle control and you learn it much faster on a bigger or angrier bike :D


Still think CR 500 :D
