I'm considering picking up a 2009 YZ450F and am curious as to how easy these things are to start both cold and hot? I hear the jetting is pretty spot on. Are there any other things that need to be done to these bikes, except replace the silencer?

They are quite easy to start as long as they are jetted correctly for you elevation.

Pipe and a new chain and you are golden.

Very easy to start, as nickeenoo says, if they're correctly jetted.

Replace the chain, the OEM last only a few rides

What's the best bet jetting wise? Pick up a JD kit? I'm pretty close to sea level.
