Could someone tell me how the power delivery of the 05 YZ450 compares to my ride, a 03 CRF450? I have heard that they made it more linear like the CRF but do not know for sure as I have never ridden the YZ, however I do have a deposit down on an 06 and am hoping it is similar. thanks

the 05 is smooth off the bottom and im betting the 06 will have more bark.i have ridden different year hondas-02,04 and 05 and they all seem weak off the bottom compared to the yamaha.my 03 yam 450 has more hit than all those.

It's hard to say what the '06 motor will be like. In '03 and '04 the YZF was criticized for being too aggressive. In '05 they really toned down the hit, but have now been criticized by some for making it too milk toast. So who knows what we'll see. My hunch is it will be more like the '04 power, but my opinion doesn't mean too much.
