Well the 550 I was looking to buy is now sold to someone else... You snooze, you loose.
Don't think I'll go with the 450 as it doesn't sound like the right fit for a flat tracker and haven't seen an FE650 in NZ as they seem quite rare here.
I still need to find a big bore dirt bike suitable for flat tracking. Has anyone got any experience and/or suggestions for this? My preference is for European. cheers

Hiya Speedy.
There are a few 650s kicking about N Zed but its hard to find an owner willing to sell.
i used to flattrack a modified dr750 a few decades ago but the hot gear back then was the 510 huskys.
In reality any large lightweight single will do if you know how to set it up. The lighter the better.... the lower the better (part of setup not purchase) and if your new to the game you will be better off with something predictable rather than peeky.
Next most important thing is the budget..... usually the biggest restriction.

Thanks Bergbro, are you in NZ? I'm up the road from Invercargill.

Well I got a 2007 Husqvarna 450 TC (58hrs). It was too cheap not to buy and It also came with an (almost complete) 2007 spares bike (30hrs). The reviews seemed ok and I'm sure it'll fit the bill just fine.

Still got my FE390 to keep me honest.

Thanks everyone for your help.

Yeah mate. Im at the other end of our wicked little racetrack..... Northland.

Was down your ways a couple of years ago. Cool place yas got down there. We are heading back next year but armed with adventure bikes instead of roadsters.

The huusky should be small and light enough and with plenty around at the right price should make for cheap fun.

Have fun Speedybro.
