    How much did you pay for your 2006 YZ450F

    Here in Brazil, due to aduana taxes, a brand new YZF 450 costs... $16500!!! Can you believe it? The price of almost three bikes in the US.

    450 cam on the 2002 426

    Dear friends, I am planning to install a new exhaust cam (with decomp device) on my 2002 YZF 426. Which one should I pick? Stock? Hotcams? Here's what I read on "thumperfaq" about the stock 450 cam: "The 2002 and 2003 YZ250F and WR250F exhaust cams are identical except for the decompression device. So for about $160, the 2001-2002 250Fs can start just as easily as a 2003 model. This isn't true for the old 426F. The 450F cam gear has a different tooth pitch, even though the tooth count is the same. The new cam will work for a while, but the chain and gear will have accelerated wear. Is is really true? Does the hotcams exhaust cam fits (and works) better? Thanks in advance and greetings from Brazil! Luis Claudio
