Husaberg owner to be... FE450 vs FE550

Hey guys

Great site you have here...

I ran across a great opportunity to buy an 08 FE450 or FE550 but need help choosing

am 5.8 , 180 lb . not a racer and will be doing trails most of the time

I read as much as I could on the site and realized the 550 is better for open places and the 450 for the tight ones. I also understood the the 550 has more power and that the 450 is "easier" to ride all day long. am I missing anything? I was leaning towards the 450 and then started thinking the 550 might be more fun... will be riding in the north Texas area if it makes any differences.

A few more questions:

1. how much can an aftermarket street-legal kit cost? the dealer is asking 500 for the original one but I have no idea if it is worth it or not
2.any thing in particular worth checking considering this are factory demo bikes which come with warranty

Thank you guys so much

450 vs 550.
It's better to have to learn throttle control than to wish for more power and not be able to get it (if that makes any sense).
If the $500 gets you the complete euro kit, I would say its worth it.
You know a thrashed bike when you see one. Nothing in particular to look for.
