is this a good deal?

Recommended Posts

i can get a 06 yz450f at a really good price (3000) with 10 hrs on and i might buy it.

so i was wondering how do these handle compared to the 08 and 07's

how about the power?

im coming off a 04 rm250 and looking to get into racing a lil more

well from what ive read (so dont harp on me if im wrong) the yz's havent changed a lot since 06... i would imagine that would handle about the same and have similar power

the 08 has a different frame that helped in cornering, the 07 and 06 are the same. All i can tell you is the 08 and 09 work well as soon as suspension work is done. I did not like my 08 or 09 stock

why didnt you like the 08's i heard they have no power?

The quickest way to resolve the power issue on an 08 YZ450F is to get rid of the stock pipe. Just putting on an aftermarket exhaust system ie Pro Circuit or FMF will wake up the engine. As for turning. Well its a Yamaha so dont expect it to turn like a Honda or a Suzuki. :)
