2004 Honda CRF450R



Please Note: this bike was recently listed in non-running condition, however the seller just had us clean the carb, flush the front and rear brakes, clean/lube/adjust the drive chain, and change the engine oil/filter.

Additional photos of this 2004 Honda CRF450R are available here for your perusal.

New for 2002, the CRF450R was Honda’s first production four-stroke MX bike and the lightest bike in class at the time. Dirt Bike magazine said “we loved the first CRF right out of the gate…it wasn’t the first, and it hasn’t always been the best or the fastest, but the Honda CRF450R is the poster child of American motocross. It has been almost from the day it was released in 2002.”

It took Honda five years to counter Yamaha’s four-stroke challenger (the YZ400F), but their CRF was lighter (15 pounds) and easier to ride than Yamaha effort, which was the YZ426F by that point. It was also much easier to start. The all-new motor weighed 65 pounds and featured Honda’s Unicam SOHC design.

PulpMX considers this one of the most important MX bikes of all time, profiling it in their “Classic Steel” series: “The new CRF turned four-stroke sceptics the world over into true believers overnight.”

This example is VIN: JH2PE05364M209655. The seller is the original owner, he purchased it new from Fay Meyers in Greenwood Village, Colorado.

There is no odometer, so true mileage is unknown.

In preparation for the listing, last week the seller had us clean the carb, flush the front and rear brakes, clean/lube/adjust the drive chain, and change the engine oil/filter.

Renthal handlebar and bar pad.
