In my uneducated opinion I think it wouldn't matter what brand of bike you put the Honda guys on, they would still be way up the pointy end at the end of the race.
Any brand with in reason obviously, I mean they aren't going to do any good if they are on a Suzuki are they.
As far as reliability reputations go, I think the CRF450 has got to be about the worst of the 450s, but they seem to be doing OK.
