I will definally put up a review.I am going to try to ride on wednesday after class to break it in and get used to my first 450.Then I will be racing it at the Boo Koo Arenacross on friday.I sure hope its easy to get used to.

So far this is what I have ready to put on it:
-ARC cnc folding brake perch with ball bearing contact point
-Works Connection Elite perch with hotstart
-Spyder grips
-and I am ordering my pre-prints backgrounds today

If I remember correctly this is the setup I am after:
drop the forks 5mm
and 97mm of sag
Is that correct?I know if thats not right, that is the setup for the 06 250f.

2006 YZF450 (posted from Burned)

I can say one thing for sure, the stock yzf jetting will be super lean at sea level.
This bike ended up with a 48 pilot jet a 162 main here at 5500 ft.
It will be able to stand a 158 in the summer.

At sea level you will need a 48 pilot and 170-172 main jet.
