hey guys today my dad went down to the local yamaha dealer and seen them about a 450. they said they could give me a left over 07 model for $9880 and the honda 450 is $9990. i am wondering which bike i would be better off with. i like the yammy cos it has reliability and a fairly strong motor, if i got the YZF i would put a pipe on it but if i got the honda i would keep it stock. would i be better off getting the yamaha?

Yes, you're better off with the dependability, smoothness, and speed of the Yamaha. Do a search on Honda's problems with valve issues. If you wanna ride, get the Yamaha, if you want to spend your time rebuilding your top-end;get the Honda.

My 04' Yammi 450f has had zero problems (except for a blown fork seal), with over 150 hours or more on it. Valves have not needed adjusting yet.

yeh i know how reliable the yamahas are. i am coming off a 2001 YZ250F, that bike had only had a new set of rings since 2001 and last year it let go, exploding the rod into three peices and destroying everything except the head :lol: but u can expect that with how much work it did. i think i will talk to my dad and convonce him to go yamaha again not honda. anway if i get the yammy what pipe would be best suited to the 450F?

Did you the win the lottery recently? In your last thread, you said you were gonna get the Honda instead 'cause you could trade in your old bike, and now you're gonna spend more cash on a pipe?

yeh well unlike the honda the 07 yammy has a pipe that is about 1km long, and i dont really like having a huge pipe hanging out the back. so im looking for a smaller more compact pipe, and in doing that i will be making the bike look better plus increasing the power. the local yamaha dealership stocks DR.D systems and i have one on my current YZF and it rips so i might get another one of them. also dad talked to the owner today and he said that he will be able to look around for people who are looking for a 250 so he could sell mine... but dad is going up to the honda dealership on friday and he is going to see how much they would give us with a trade in on my bike, and if they can give us a good deal i will be getting the 07 CRF. whatever bike i get i will be happy, its just i like yamaha so i want to stay with them if it is possible. if not i will be going honda.

am i missing something here??? 9980 for a 07 bike....thats 2 grand over MSRP plus the 07's should be on sale now since 08's came and still coming out :confused:

anywho if you like smooth powerband(but still have the 450 power when needed), outstanding handling and light feeling bike Yamaha would be your best bet. :thumbsup:

Yes you are; the exchange rate. The Australian Dollar is currently worth about $0.86 U.S.
