I have a 05 YZ450 sitting in my garage at home and was wondering what to get for it that I don't already have, "been in Iraq for damn near a year". So my question is for those that have the bike and wish when they would have done something different or more than what they ended up doing to make it the way they want. Now I raide mostly MX and have a 02 426 that I can swap some stuff out.

Parts that will Swap:

JD Kit
Ironman 51 tooth Rear
DID ERT 520 chain

A new triple clamp and some protapers are on the list but I will wait until they are mission INOP first. Tires are also on the near term list.

Thanks :cry:

I think you hit all of the bases, I got the suspension done for my weight 218#s.

My first worry was getting protection for the bike meaning the radiators. The first day I had the bike, I hadn't even started it yet and the wind caught and it fell over on a brick and caved in a radiator. :cry: I have since installed Rooster Performance radiator guards and skid plate. Also replaced stock oil filter with a Scott wire mesh reusable filter. :cry:

A lot can be purchased to make it like you like. I would buy the Zipty adj fuel screw - maybe a Twin airpowerflow kit with powernow and power plus - this really works well with the JD Jetting kit - Suspension can be done to your liking - send it to Enzo for the best - a cam change will really help the 05 out - in the power dept then add a nice pipe .....this list can be endless......decide what is the end result you would like for your ride to be like then budget and buy! :cry:
