Hi guys, I know these threads are becoming quite common lately but can you blame me for being excited about my new bike. After years of trail riding I have started racing motocross and about six months ago picked up a 2002 CRF450. I though this bike was the greatest but I never could get the turning or suspension to feel right. Rather than spend a lot of money on the bike I read reviews on this forum and decided to go for a left over 2006 YZ450F. This bike is amazing . After the first two laps on the track I was faster than I was on the Honda. It is light, turns great, and the suspension is the best I have ever ridden. I'd like to say thanks for all the good info I have already received on set up. I have changed the pilot to a 45, set the sag and raised the forks, and greased everything up (bearings were nearly dry). I also added a works connection glide plate and their radiator cages (pretty impressive). I used to own an '01 WR250F and after 5 years the valves were still in spec. How long should I wait to do the first inspection? On the CRF I had to re shim after approximately 20 hours. The Honda will be for sale as it will be collecting dust in the garage.
