I may have the opportunity to get an 05 YZ450F and would like to know what anyone can say about this bike. I want to use it for the 250 beginner class and currently have an 01 426 and a 99 rm250. The 426 just feels like a tank in the corners and also when jumping it. I am looking for a better handling/jumping 4 stroker.

The 05 is a good bike. I have had mine for 2 years now and have had zero problems. It is pretty much the same as the 03 and 04's. The power is just alittle different but nothing to complain about.

the 05 is a great bike, bought mine new and never had any problems with anything but regular maintenance. fork seals went fast till they started making good ones to replace them with. would still be riding it but I picked up an 07.
