I have an 07450f on order and it should be in within a week. I want to buy a scotts stainless oil filter for it but on their site it shows 03 - 06. I was wondering if anyone knows for sure if the 07 uses a different filter. Thanks

yes the 07 and 06 filters are the same part number from yamaha. so the scotts will fit fine..

alot of the bolts on the '07 have been changed to 10mm......so it's gonna be easy to do lot's of stuff. I hate the little bolts!

not all parts are the same (06/07). I ordered an fmf powercore muffler (for 07 yz450) and it did not fit. A lot of online shops are advertising 07 products and some may be different. I called fmf and they do not have an 07 yz450 to test. They said they are getting many calls similar to mine, beware!

thanks for the heads up. I plan on getting a gytr enduro skid plate, the WC radiator braces, and some kind of frame guards. I guess i have to call and make sure they are compatible with 07. Problem is, i dont wanna ride the bike without having the armor on it first. thanks tho.

Just so you know. The 07 YZ450 comes with factory rad braces on it...

correct me if im wrong, but those braces look like they will do as much good as the stock skid plates that comes on the 250f's. Pretty much good for sand, water, and most types of air.

i'm guessing why the pipes arent fitting is, the motor on the 07 was changed to sit more verticle to centralize mass. so the pipe mounts, length, ect are probably different. ski

hmm, but if its more vertical, wouldnt that make it more top heavy?

That change was made in '06, not '07. That would not be what caused a pipe not to fit, since the engines are the same.

It would if it had been more horizontal than it was in the '05 model, and if that were the only change. But cylinder was only canted forward by about 5 degrees in the older models, and the crank in the '06 was placed lower in the engine, so the top end was not only moved closer to the CG, it was lowered as well.

The muffler seemed to line up right with brackets but it was the diameters of muffler and header that did not match. (06 on an 07).
