Can you get the airfilter wet by washing the bike or is it pretty well protected if you power washed your bike?

Here is a video of Tim Potisek, a top Euro beach race specialists, riding the new 2010 last week. Unfortunately Tim passed away yesterday from injuries he sustained practicing MX. Godspeed Brother.

The new Transworld has a "test" of the new 450. 2 pages and they never really say much abotu it other than the low end is "stronger than any bike I have ever ridden."

Handling, "very well".....and a low CG.

I wonder if the test was written before or after they ride the bike?

TWMX doesn't say anything bad about any of the bikes, too much advertising $. MXA is the only one that will point out flaws with a bike and then they tell you how to fix it.

I walked away from $8700 already if it makes you feel any better. I would need that extra money for suspension and a pipe so pays to wait a few weeks for reality to set in. Interesting that only one ride report posted thus far. Went thru this last year. Now 09's EFI bikes are going for 5-6K. When dirt bikes cost more than street bikes, you know there's a problem.


I'm batteling witht he price right now. I could be the first in line to get a white one, but the dude isn't coming off the price. With tax it is $8700 out the door. He is offering $200 online voucher that can be redeemed online through Yamaha. Yamaha will send the check directly to me for $200.(NET $8500) Another dealer told me that he would sell me the new bike for $7600. But after tax, freight, setup, and doc fee, he was $9000. Yeah right.:smirk:

Got to see And sit on a 2010 yz450 today at the shop.Got to say the bike has some cool looking stuff bike as a package it is ugly and bulky looking.Would say in a few years we will look at it like we did the 93-95 yz,s when the 96 came out(if you know what i mean) . I sat on it and the only off putting think is the tank feels wide. dont know if it because i thought it would seem narrower or just the look of it when you looked at it?

After watching the clip of Tim riding the 2010 YZ I noticed that he didn't wear any kind of neck brace. I found a few more clips of him on a Honda but still no neck brace. After a little research I found out that he died from a broken neck.

I'm paying $7,700 for mine. If I want to license it in my state, probably won't, I'll get to pay another $550 in taxes.
