Leftover 2011, thoughts

I have found a leftover 2011 for 5700 otd, I have never thought of buying a 450 before.

About me

195 lbs

Slow c vet rider, strictly mx

Currently on an 09 yz250f, my only complaint is the handling, I have no trust in the front end

I would take about a thousand dollar loss on the 250f, I am fine w that as long as I like the 450f, but I can't afford to take another big Los if I don't like the 450.

Any thoughts pro or con?

My 12' is the best handling bike I've ever ridden

I love my 2011.

Handling - easy and precise, just spend the time to set it up correctly.

Power - dial up a map that suits you , mild or wild the choice is yours.

Reliability - it's a Yamaha !

I doubt you'll be disappointed :-)

Sounds like a good deal, and others have said you will probably like it, but... I've seen several brand-new 2013 YZ450Fs going for $6500 around here. No guarantee you will like the 2013s either, just some food for thought.

You will love the suspension and the power. If the power is too gnarly you can easily tune it to your liking.
