I have recently bought a road regal crf450r, it has mot and log book, all engine and chassis number match up and every mot from new. My confusion is this. On both front and rear brake levers there is a cut break light switch, the rear mud guard has a built in light with the wires cut, head light with no wires and a digital speedo cable coming from the front break caliper which is also cut. There are no light switches and no electric start. Is it an X or an R

Sounds like at some point it was running working brake lights.

The X model usually have elec start. So for yours to be an "x" engine, you'd have a battery and starter motor.

The x would be fitted with an 18inch rear wheel. the r, has 19in. But this could be easily swapped

a light too at the front a speedo drive, the top yoke will have three bolt holes 2 for the fork leg and one at the front for the light to mount onto

Old thread, but for future reference, the X was introduced with an electric starter and a 5 speed gearbox, whereas the R was kickstart only and a 4 speed box. In later years though Honda added electric start to the R. Not sure about the gearbox. Easy to find out though.
