I have an 08 yz450, the yoshimura and the suspension upgrades were far the best money spent. Some of the red bling I boght looks cool but doesnt add any performance

The Rekluse z-start pro is the best money I've spent. The suspension revalve runs a close second.

An extended fuelscrew so I can dial it in at altitude, kick-it so I don't have to find a tree to lean against, triple clamp mounted handguards so my levers don't get busted when I crash my brains out.

But in terms of grin factor, the Yosh!

I guess it depends on what year model we are talking about. On an 08 with the short muffler I would say an exhaust for sure as the suspension is really good for most people. Anything on back I might say suspension and tire selection is on top. If anyone has not tried the 745 Dunlop tires I would definately say to run some. I only have a few rides on mine but for this time of year I am really happy right now.

I still say suspension, but I can't disagree with this where the bike is an '08. The stock exhaust is just lame. When a slip-on from a mini specialist will get you 6 hp at 5000rpm, something's just not right.

The rekluse e-axle and D742 front tire on my 06 450. That combo really inspired confidence in my bikes handling!

Suspension is the best investment period ..... unless you are a beginner, Suspension work,Springing and/or revalving will make you a better, faster more importantly a more confident rider.

everything else is secondary.....:thumbsup:

That's what I'm talking about. The results are worth about $600.

Hmmmm.....well, I ride & race off-road only, no MX. For me its a toss-up between these, they all changed one aspect of the bikes performance considerably.

1) Correct suspension springs - way better cornering & handling.
2) Steahly flywheel weight - less stalling, smoother low end, just easier to live with.
3) Scotts stabilizer - self explanitory.

I've done those same things, and I must agree that the heavier flywheel is a very good value (I used the GYT-R Offroad version).

I also am extremely fond of the Scotts stabilizer I have. A little pricey, but indispensable, IMO.

But the Smart Performance fluid and ICS upgrade actually reduced the need for it a great deal, since stuff that used to kick the front end around is just sort of sucked up by the fork in a less than dramatic fashion more often than not. I'm not planning to give up my Scotts anytime soon, but I might not have bought one if I'd done the suspension first.
