2004 YZF 450F problems

Recommended Posts

Hi all, im from Australia and its the first time ive ever been involved in anything like this so dont be afraid to give me some tips if i slip up,.......here goes,

My 16 y/o son is about to buy a 2004 yz450f and i was just wondering if anyone out there knows of any major issues they had. I heard one fella say that the gearbox's give a lot of trouble but only heard it one time, and he said it was a 5 speed when this one is 4 speed.   I am a diesel mechanic out of work as i had a dirt bike accident 2 years ago and broke my back so i had to shut my truck repair business down. I have had bikes all my life and now my 3 boys have bikes but ive never had 4 stroke dirt bikes before. I do all the work on our bikes including port & polishing them all as well as other hot up mods as i have to get the most out of everything. :devil:  The oldest son has a ktm 250 sx, middle son a cr 80 and the little bloke has a kx 60.

It is THE most reliable modern 450 made.

You should look for a 2005 as they are more modern and have better suspension.

 

You should post in the proper forum though: YZ400/450 forum
