Rode Clearcreak on my 05 Sunday and Hollister today on the 06. Man is the 06 nice. Super fast, perfect gearing.

Changed the pilot to a 48, no popping. Added TipTy fuel screw and changed the oil. Taking to Jawbone this weekend.

I like it. Handles awesome.

Enjoy dude ...
As my 05YZ450 is just 5 months old I will just put this on the wish list for a while but I am glad you are having fun...

no it was really nice. Some frozen parts. Fell on some mud/ice. But the dirt was good after it thawed.

Congrats you lucky one.
How heavy does the new 450 feel, has it come much closer to the feel of your 250?

I think it feel really good. Turns way easier then the 05. It may stick a little better then the 250. I have not set the sag yet, so I can't give a totally accurate comparision. I will set it this weekend.

Hey man, come on! If you live in the UAE you have to have at least 5 '06's AND your own personal 18 wheeler to haul them to the practice track. :applause:

06s are not in here yet :p

I am just a humble teacher.. The locals could afford the 5 06s etc. but for some reason most of them seem to prefer quads... :ride: :applause:

The `06 450 engine is all new, the 250F motor is the same as the `05 motor.
