I'm beginning to look at used YZ450's and wonder if there is anything special I should pay attention to on the 2002 models.

There's no such thing as a 2002 YZ 450....2000-2002 Yamaha made the YZ426F, 2003-2005 Yamaha switched to the YZ 450! 98-99 is the YZ400F....just wanted to let ya know....Thanks PEte :cry:

Unless of course they bored out a 426 to a 450 but that would still be a true "YZ426" with a 450 motor IMO. :cry:
