I have a 07yz450.I dont have alot of hours on the bike due to first an illness and then a wrist injury.I just started to ride the bike again a few weeks back and I am in total agreement in regards to the turning issues on the 07 yz450, but I'm wondering if some people are not giving up on the 06-07 yz before trying a few things first.I know from reading many a thread that some guys have tried different things,but it seems like some guys havent even gone as far as at least changing the front tire and there ready to sell there bike and buy a new 08 model.Hell, I was even thinking about selling my 07 ,but then I started to call a few of the suspension guys Ive used in the past and everyone of them said to keep the 07 and with a revalve the turning would be greatly improved.I had one guy tell me with a revalve it would be hard to tell the difference between the turning on 07 compared to the 08.Due to the fact that my 07 has such low hours I think I might just keep it for another year and have the susp.revalved and go with the applied offset clamps.Now back to my question thay I originally started this theard with,how many people have at least had their susp. revalved and did it help with their turning compaints?
