Hey guys, I currently ride a 02 426, and its time for an upgrade. I am looking at an 04 or possibly waiting for an 05 450. I race consistenly in the top 5 in the junior class. What i want to know is how much better is the new 450's over me ol' 426. I know its heavy and has a good hit, which i like, and i can handle this bike really well. My dislikes about the bike are: 1. Suspension: The forks on this bike suck... stock or revalved... they suck. Harsh and way too easy to bottom! 2. Turning: Not the best. Terrible in the ruts comapared to a CRF. However, I absolutely love everything else about this bike, and have never ridden a new yz450, but have ridden a cr450, but i wont buy a honda. But anyways, for those that have done the switch, are they that much better? How so? Wait for an 05'? Thanks, JR P.S. the 4two6 is for sale if anyone is interested.
