I rode my friends 03 yz450 and I didnt feel like it wanted to turn. Do the 07s turn better in tight corners. I found a new one for $6200 all I would have do is put thier name on it. But I am leary of handleing. Any info would be helpful thanks.

The two bikes are as different as night and a day two weeks later. Maybe more than that. The '06-7 is not only not reluctant to turn, it's like it can't wait to be asked to. It feels 30 pounds lighter than the bike you rode, and will do pretty much anything you want it to, right when you want it done.

There's simply no comparison. If it were not so stable going in a straight line, and didn't have blue plastics, you'd swear it was made by a different manufacturer.

I really like my 07. Make sure you set the sag at least 100mm and raise the forks 5mm. She corners good and is stable.

I bought it today for $5950 When they offered a lower price I had to take it. It took me about 20 min to get it started the first time but I fell it is worth it. They are so much more comfortable than the 04s.
