I friend of mine did his 1st 2 years of HS on a CRF450. He HATED it until he had the suspension revalved for HS. Once he had the revalve, he said that it was waaaaaay easier to ride. He was also less exhausted by the end of a race.
So, if you can afford it, it could make for a more positive experience and it will certainly make it more enjoyable.
