For a used 07 YZ450? It looks nice, but I don't see $10,500 worth of stuff there unless the engine is straight out of Chad Reed's bike.

Looks like a bunch of bling and stickers to me. The 'factory' forks are not even coated.

Ditto. Nothing mentioned to make the bike worth half that. Also, look at the sellers feedback rating.

If setting a suspension up to factory numbers adds 4K to a bikes value, I need to change jobs. I could do about 20 a day (if my day was only four hours long).

As I recall, the forks on both my '06's were "factory set". :prof:

He just wasted $40 on a listing fee. But, there are boneheads out there so he may be smarter than I think.

"oh it uhhh, it has anti-gravity suspension. latest technology out of japan, factory teams don't have it, we're not supposed to know about it. it allows you to hit any jump in 5th pinned and not worry about how far/high you will get and still land like it was nothing. they compare it to jetpacks and whatnot."

"oh wow that is really cool!"

"yeah, and the motor has a new wiesco 29.5:1 compression and makes about 140hp on the dyno"

"WHAT THE ****, REALLY???!?"

"yeah"

"wow i'll buy it now!"


thats a good guess as to how that one will go. :prof:

Guys, you're missing the point. This bike isn't for everyone.

"This is for serious riders only"

I know that I couldn't handle that thing. I am only a weekend warrior. But, if I was serious.......

More like this bike is for no one :prof: - Its a good looking bike, (bling)like alot we have all seen . Its a nice try to see if any bites happen . I havent seen many 450's that weren't "super fast" that is until compared to something faster .
