I just got a 2004 YZF 450
Its like almost new condition
Sold my 05 KX 250,It was all pro circuit,It was fast but was not easy to ride
I race +40 mx
Anything I should do to the 450?
It seems really good
Thanks

1st welcome to the blue side
try to experiment with different gearing. You will get more use out of each 4 gears. It has plenty of power
Tire selection is key
Get bars that you feel comfortable with for your size
Set up the suspension for your ability, stock it is pretty bad. Midstroke harshness is very predominant
I have had good luck with a Storm Racing link to help it corner better without a ton of front wheel push but there are other ways to help
You will need to change the 2stroke riding skills to get the most and best riding out of it. :thumbsup:

Thanks,I'm glad to be on the blue side
I have put my RC bend renthals on and bridgestone m403 and m404 on it
I think it will take a couple of rides to start to get used to the thumper,it has been 2 years since I had a 4 stroke(06 KX450F)
It should be fun

Welcome to the Dark Side.....

I had my suspension done by MX Tech East, and it was the best money I have ever spent. I also got an RG3 triple and a set of Pro Contour bars. That set up totally eliminated arm pump for me.:thumbsup:
