Just take it slow

I just got a YZ450F, and it's the first bike in about 2 years I have really ridden. Yesterday (the first day I got it) I started off jumping 10-20 foot tables and then worked my way up to doubles. Jump the table tops as many times as it takes for you to be confident about what is going to happen when you leave the ground. It might take 20 times, or it might take 100 times. Just don't rush it.
I am already feeling right at home on my YZ450. By the end of today I should be jumping the 45 foot double at our track. The confidence comes a little easier for me because I was jumping a YFZ450 quad over all these jumps in the past.
Gear up and stay safe.

Especially if you are landing nose 1st when you don't want to. At the very least it will help prevent bottoming on the suspension on the landings.
Take a video cam and play back your jumps in slow mo or better yet frame by frame. You'll see all kinds of stuff you'd never know about otherwise.
