Which 450r is right for me?

I am looking at buying a 450r. I want a good reliable ride that has plenty of power. I will mainly spend most of my time on fairly fast trails...maybe do some racing here or there. I have looked at the KFX, TRX, and the YFZ. I have always been a big fan of Honda but want to explore my options. Keep in mind i'm a poor college dude really not wanting to spend more than 4000.
thanks...

Thumbs up picking a 450

I have an '07 LT-R450 quad racer. This can be made into a great trail bike with some minor mods. I have went with ITP Holeshots all the way around, (20" front and rear), mounted on ITP Baja wheels. The gearing has been changed to 13/39 from the factory 14/36. Other mods include full skids from ROCK industries, a Cherry bomb, UNI air filter with K&N pre-filter, (no air box lid), stage II Hotcams, full port and polish with 1mm oversize valves and a full HMF exhaust system. Granted, all this is not necessary to make the LT-R a great trail bike but I do at least recommend the taller rear tires and the full skids. The other mods I did just because I like to be faster than the other guy. Good luck and happy trails....

thanks for all of your input on this topic. i think that i have decided to go with a raptor 700r. i know this is way off the topic of the 450's but i believe it best fits my riding style and the terrain i will be on. now the task of finding one in my budget...college will drain ya haha
