I am very interested by this bike, as I mentioned before. I came across this while looking for one.

Is this a real issue? Have you experienced this? That seems strange.

"I am selling a 2019 Honda CRF 450L. It only has 652 miles on it. A 600 mile service and the 1800 mile valve inspection service has been complete as well. There is a known intermittent issue with this year make model. When downshifting and burping the throttle, the bike can cut out sometimes. The bike is also still under warranty from the dealership so you can take it to the dealership to get fixed and it should be covered. There are also some scratches on the lt mirror, footpeg and rear signal. Because of this, I am selling the bike for under market value."

These bikes, like all other late model platable enduros and dual sports, are set to run extremely lean from the factory. This is in order for them to meet the stringent emissions standards set forth for road going vehicles that get tougher each year. What he is experiencing isn't an issue per se and it certainly isn't a defect or warrantable claim, it's called a flame out. His bike only has 600 miles on it and most claim the bikes run better after they have 1000+ miles on them and are properly broken in. I did experience what he has going on but I changed out my exhaust and added a Vortex ECU which allow you to control your fuel management settings and now the bike is an absolute beast. Some use the JD Jetting fuel controller and/or a booster plug and claim to have similar results. In other words, these are characteristics of modern street legal bikes thanks to the EPA. Have no fear in regards to what he is talking about, if his bike is clean and priced right then I say go for it, you'll love this bike.

I'll do a full write up in the next few days, but here's a sneak peek into our (myself and @MVI) trip to Silverton, CO last week.
