handguards, skidplate, rad guards, theres really no problems with the motor so mostly just protection.

My wife bought a yfz 450, I have crf 250r. We both ride limited trail, alot of woods, and some I guess you can call it adventure riding. Keep the last part of the clean side, ha ha.

What? Because I have "CRF" in my text, no one will talk to me? If you can't tell, I like Yamaha also. I am seroiusly looking at a yz250 for woods or wr450. CRF was a great at the time but underpowered for me, other than that I have not had any problems with the bike. My wife's last ride was a raptor 660 and my daughter rides a ttr125.

If you where wondering why I am in the bike section, I made the mistake of putting this post in the general section, in which I was moved here.

Make sense? as the title states under my screen name I am still a "newbie"

Don't be so easily bruised. For one, woods riding represents a smaller segment of YZF riders than it does WRF riders, and for another, there have been several such "woods prep" posts lately. People have perhaps grown weary of it for the time being. Try the search function on the keyword "woods" or similar.

Just trying to show my "joking side" even if my wife says that I don't have one. My post should read, what I should do to make her ride a enjoyable (fast) and safe ride and not leave us in the woods / woods bike.. oh I am sorry atv, not bike.
I have had several yamaha, honda, and 2 suzuk's. The yamaha seemed to have more of the razzel - dazzel, the honda I like the engineering when it came time for maintence and the suzuki, well I guess I liked the colors??, both suzukis where really picky bikes, temp, fuel, oil, just about everything.

I think the lack of response is because you are asking how to set up a quad (YFZ) for offroad riding. I don't really know anything about quads...my suggestion would be to saw it in half right down the middle and make it into two bikes. :lol:

And I thought it was only kids that came up with quick witty comments like that. You know it is a shame, this is my wife's quad, whom I am going to assume don't have the knowledge or experience that you have, and I get her into this forum to expand her ideas on what she likes, and I get a comment like that. Regardless, enjoy your vast knowledge of quads and I will move on.

Why don't you try the ATV forum then.

Whoa, dude! I think you took my post the wrong way. I don't know jack about quads and said so, and that was simply my way of explaining that to you. You commented about the lack of helpful replies and I was just pointing out that this is a bike forum and not a quad forum. If you posted in the 'Yamaha ATV' forum you would find lots of help I'm sure.

Nobody here cares if you ride a YZF, a CRF, an RMZ, a KXF, or a KTM-F...if you got a bike question you'll find tons of help here, but ideally you will post in the forum that most closely matches what you are looking for help with. That way you get help from people with the most knowledge and experience with your particular issue. :lol:
