Out of all the years the 450 has been made. Which one is the closest to being perfect?

The YZ. What did you think I would say?

If you are referring to YZ's over the years, it is general consensus that the 06 has the best engine stock. The 08 seems to be the best handling for most people. The 08 with an aftermarket exhaust on it runs possibly better than the 06, but really the 06-08 are all very good. If you get the bike properly set up for you any year is a great bike.
