So as of right now i have a ds450 that i bought for $2,000. Its beat and i want another 450 for xc racing because i want to start this summer doing races. I need help on what 450 i should get. i like the ds but its the only 450 i owned. I have narrowed my selection to the ds450, 09+ yfz450r or x, and the ltr450. Yes ik this is a Can-Am site. anything will help, thanks.

The frame is the weakest part on the DS. It'll handle better than anything out there but it'll cost you more to make it reliable. I don't know about the other two reliability wise. From my limited experience the yfz is heavier that the ds but handles fairly decent.

cccutter has the frame pieces you need to beef up the ds and help it take the beating. I would at least replace the front spars before you race it and then replace the rest as you need to.
