Well Over the last 6 months I've been Buying Parts here and there for the Conversion. It all started Last year at the practice track, I'm taking a break and I put my bike on the center stand. A gust of wend whips up and over she goes and smashes the filler neck on my helmet. :excuseme: Yea Yea.. Windy Day.. So I've been Epoxy and JB Welding the Filler Neck or what ever it took to keep fuel from spilling on my :confused: .

This winter while I couldn't ride I finally took everything apart and started the process.

I used an Airbox from an 04 Yz450f but the Boot is from a 07 Yz450f believe it or not they interchange.

Other Parts From Various Ebay Auctions

04Yz450f Subframe
04Yz450f Rear Master Cylinder/Break Caliper(Used master Cylinder Only)
04Yz450f Fuel Tank
04Uz450f Seat

New Parts
UFO Plastics Kit
One Industries Graphics Kit
Attact Graphics Numberplates and Backgrounds.
Dunlop 952 Rear Tire
Factory FX All Griper Seat Cover(Not Pictured)
New Front Fork Bump Stops.

I THOUGHT ABOUT DOING THAT TOO TO MY 426
THEN JUST DECIDED TO SELL IT AND GET A 450.

I sold my 02 for 2900 and bought a 04 450 for 3900
Pretty good deal

Yours looks GOOD

Well the funny thing was I decided to do the Valve clearance checks since i had it appart. Well I zip tied the DeComp Lever so I could turn it over for the correct timing marks.. Well When I checked the clearances the Exhaust was Way off from my last measurements.. I proceeded too take the cam covers off to pull the ship buckets.. Only then did I notice the DeComp lever was tied open.. :excuseme: Almost lost my 8mm socket in the engine too.. :sweden: I can laugh about it now but at the time :excuseme: .


That would be my buddy Apollo posing in the Before Photo :confused:
