His name is Mike Dean I think. You can also use a coil from a Hayabusa, just make sure you get the electrical connection at the time you purchase it. Salvage yards will charge you anywhere from 30-50 bucks. I believe the head on the 450 is shorter than the 426 so the sealing ring probably isnt in the right place, it could be moved easily most likely. Also if you buy the coil from Yamaha the plug (connector) wont be available. Salvage yard is the best way to go. I did it to mine (2000) years ago and have never had any problems, the fit was perfect. I also have the stock coil for a 2000 if you want to go that route.
