Can you get an easy cam for the 450? I had heard this came with the 03 250 f, but had not heard of this for the 450. I ask this, because I rode his 03 450 yesterday and it kicked like an XR. Just wondering

If you're talking about auto-decompression, it's standard on all '03 and later YZFs. The "hard spot" in the 450 is the piston starting down from just before TDC against a closed cylinder. Put the engine up against the hard spot, draw the crank back up, and give it a smooth full stroke. It will start.
