450 EFI in the woods

Recommended Posts

Im currently riding a 05 rmz 450 in the woods and like it. Im looking to get something newer (08 -09ish 450) I rode a 2010 yzf450 on sunday, and the power delivery was frighteningly abbrupt!!! Maybe in just takes some getting used to, or is just a bad idea for the woods? Ive seen some good deals on 09 kxf's up my way. Any thoughts?

I've heard that from several who have rode '10- YZ450s in the woods here. Like riding a light switch, and very hard/ tiring to try to control. In open terrain I figue they would be alright, or if your name is Paul Whibley you wouldn't notice it. Have read that you can tune a bit of the low end ugly out of it, but I don't know anyone who actually has been able to. On the other hand, '09 Yz450s get rave reviews (looking at one myself).

All the reviews I've read said good things about the newer ('10 up) KX450s, along with the KTM 450SX (e-start :lol:). Myself, if I was looking for a new ('11-'12) 450 MX bike for the woods, I'd be seeing orange.:)
