If Timmy aint that much faster on the 450, then since I have already paid for mine, I will see if they can use the $$$$ to put towards an XR400. Man I hope so.
Or maybe I'll get it and just try to give myself a month or so to get used to it!!!! :)

Having ridden white, not blue, with the first generation yz400f, I thought it was about time to upgrade. However after getting tired of waiting for any news of when the yz450f would be out, I slapped down money on 2003 CRF450. Only to learn of the yz450f launch a month later. My crf arrives later this month but now Im pining for the new yzf. Should I sell the crf even before it gets off the show room floor and buy blue, or should I try red for a change? Decisions, decisions.

Your totally right about Ferry he isnt any faster on the 450f. You know why???? He isnt riding it yet!!!! Its a 2003 bike. Its not legal in AMA competition. Here's the official Debut:

"July 29, 2002

Ferry to debut the YZ450F

Here's a note from Yamaha's Terry Beal:

Team Factory Yamaha racer Tim Ferry and Yamaha Motor Corporation, USA are pleased to announce the national racing debut for the all-new 2003 YZ450F.

Okay, Okay - as many of you know, the 2003 YZ450F is not legal this year in AMA competition, and though Yamaha created ripples with its YZ400F, way way back in 1997, and YZ250F, the AMA won't budge on its homologation rules for this year's Outdoor Nationals. Tim Ferry will make his debut at Saddleback Park on Monday August 5th during day one of the Surfer-Cross.

The annual Surfer Cross, featuring top surfers and motocross racers, will be held on Monday August 5th at Saddleback and Tuesday August 6th at "Trail 1" in San Onofre State Beach. Start times for both days are 8:30 am. The competition pits surfers vs. motocross racers on a track one day and in the surf the next. Totals are added for an overall winner and year long bragging rights.

Asked about his chances for winning the 2003 Surfer Cross, Yamaha racer Tim Ferry said he hoped "for huge jumps and small waves." Ironically, the #1 Plate/Board? holder in Surfing, CJ Hobgood, said he hoped for "small jumps and huge waves."

Unfortunately, the event is not open to the public. Look for more details here on"

Have you guys ever heard of the saying "Race on Sunday Sell on Monday"? You guys are all fools. Why do you depend on how Tim Ferry does in races to determine what you buy?

You guys are setting up Tim Ferry to fall because you guys are making the assumption that the YZ450F is so much faster than the 426 and CRF450R that Tim Ferry will be MORE competitive once he rides the YZ450F.

While most of you guys agree that races are won or lost based on the 90/10 rule, you guys keep talking as if it's the 10/90 rule (10% rider 90% bike).

Give it a rest. The YZ450F is BETTER than the 426 in that it's lighter and easier to start. For 99% of us, that's what is important.

I now decided against the XR400 I mentioned above and am working on a steal-deal for an XR150f cuz of the wt ratio .

Someone said they have a brother that dated a girl that danced at a strip joint that had a mom that was a hooker, and SHE said that she saw RC riding the new XR150f and he was kick A.. on it!
I figure if RC is riding it.......heck I gotsta have one!!! :)
If he rides one and is fast on it......SURELY ......I WILL BE FAST just like him??????? :D

That 1970 Sl 350 twin that Ego siad he wants probably has more in common with our production bikes than Tim Ferry's does!!
