Will a YZ450 2006 Clutch fit a 2009?

Recommended Posts

Hi guys

I have a 2006 stock Clutch left over from my old bike. I have been experiencing some clutch fade on my 2009 YZ 450. I was wondering if the 2006 clutch would fit the 2009.

Here are the part numbers from Yamaha:

2009

7. 4X7-16325-00-00 - clutch plate

8. 5TA-16321-00-00 - friction

9. 90501-230E4-00 - spring

2006

7. 5JG-16325-00-00 - clutch plate

8. 5TA-16321-00-00 - friction

9. 90501-231E9-00 - spring

What do you think, would it work?

What you need to make the swap work is the full set of plates from an '06, to start with. The friction plates are the same (you need 9, not 8) but the steels are a different thickness (8 are required).

You also need the pressure plate and springs from an '06 to adjust for the extra plate. In addition to that, you will also need the clutch release arm from an '06. The arm from the '07 and later clutch was modified for lighter pull, and won't lift the plate stack far enough for a good release with an extra plate.

Thanks for the very thorough reply.

I do have all of the 06 parts except for the clutch release arm but it sounds like I should just buy the correct parts (steels and springs) for my 09.

I have only had the 09 bike for a year, bought new in '10, and I am curious as to why I am getting clutch fade? I keep it properly adjusted. It happened one day after doing just a few starts, on a relatively cool day. Any thoughts?

I'd go for the whole 06 set up in your 09.

I never had problems with my 06 clutch.

I have had minor problems with my 08 and with my 10.

Switched my release lever on my 10 to a 2011 longer arm and it works great.

If I were you I would just convert your 09 set up to an 06. They worked better.

I had some issues with the 07 clutch, and switched it to a full 06 Hinson...No more issues, no fading, no adjustments needed, no notches in the basket, no burnt plates...Was a ridiculous cost (around $1000 bucks) but I had the dough at the time (was working a ton of overtime) and I've never before or since ridden a bike with a better clutch...

If your stock 06 clutch is in good shape and all you need is the clutch arm and new 06 plates and springs, go for it, you won't be disappointed...

One thing that seems to exacerbate the fade problem is aftermarket plates. Some of them tend to change size a lot with heat compared to OEM.

The '06 clutch is very rugged, and makes a good upgrade.

      Selling an FMF Power Core 4 exhaust system off my 450FX. Exhaust has 80 hours and is 100% functional. This will also fit the 14-15 YZ450F and 16-18 Wr450F. If needed I can also include new muffler packing although it does not need it.

      I have a 2008 YZ450F with a stock header pipe and Pro Circuit T-4 Slip-On Exhaust. I'm 99% sure the slip on is shot because its loud as hell and when I take it off and shake it it rattles. I would repack it but the screws are all stripped ect.
      Anyways I've gone over the carb multiple times and I've got it running pretty well. The only issue I have with the bike is that it sputters and pops around 1/2 throttle when I hold it there. When I give it full throttle from any RPM it runs great or when I give it about 3/4 throttle it spins up like a top to redline.
      Initially the popping and sputtering was way worse I made the situation better by moving the pilot jet up in a few sizes from a 45 (stock) to a 62. The issue has gotten way better since then but I'm not super sure what to do from here. Should I keep moving my pilot jet up in size because that's a pretty large jump right? I tried changing my needle clip position but that didn't help much if anything it just made starting it worse and little to no impact on the ride.
      Any input on this would be helpful. I don't want to buy other slip on. Also as for the rest of the carb I'm very sure everything else in it is what it needs to be at. I've replaced all the gaskets and O-rings cleaned all the jets, valve holes ect. fixed the accelerator pump timing. I just thinks its strange that my pilot jet size is going so far from the stock 45, but all symptoms point to the bike running lean.

      Hi I was wondering if y’all have been using a 450 on your YZ250F?

      Excel Takasago 17x3 front and 17x5 rear supermoto wheels with Metzler M3 tires in very lightly used condition. Less than 200 miles total on the setup. Warp 9 spokes. Rear has a Talon hub with 45T Sunstar steel sprocket and OEM rear disc, and front has a polished OEM Yamaha WR450F hub (for the stock speedometer), with a Motomaster 320mm disc. Included is a DID gold o-ring chain, 14T front sprocket, and front brake caliper adapter for a truly turn key setup. Everything is in excellent condition, not a single scratch on these wheels. Came off my '11 WR450F, but will fit many different Yamahas with 20mm front and 22mm rear axles. Asking $1400 plus shipping.
      **Will be driving up near Atlanta, then to northern Louisiana, OKC, and down through Dallas and Houston, TX soon -- can meet or deliver if in the area (Aug 31-Sep 9)**
