I am a big guy (6'0 and 220) and love my '04 yz450 in the woods. I run stock gearing, CR high bars with Bark Busters and a Pro-Taper adjustable top triple clamp. I also added a FMF Power bomb supercross header to get better snap off the bottom. You have to ride with a lot of momentum. Kinda like ridding a big 125! I am going with a Rekluse clutch as soon as I can afford it.

Stealthy 13 oz weight, 53 tooth rear, lowered two inches (revalve also)
works pretty good (notice I said pretty good) WR is probably a better choice
electric starter definately a plus.....hard to say what will work for you Bro,
If your a young TALL guy that can ride fast.....the YZ might be your deal
Im 56 and fat and out of shape so when I go riding with FAST GUYS..
I suck alot of DIRT....So if you like [COLOR=Blue]EASY[/COLOR] as opposed
to [COLOR=Red]HARD[/COLOR] read these stories and compare your needs
BUT, have fun at all costs..

BC :cry:
