First, I need to be clear on what you are asking about. You said "YZF450"; A), there is no such thing, and :ride:, that's close to being "YFZ450", which is a quad, and the answer is different for the quad engine.

I'll answer your question on the assumption that it's a motorcycle engine (YZ450F) that we're discussing:

'03-05 cylinders are interchangeable. Starting with '06, the top end oiling is internal, and '06-'09 cylinders will not work on earlier 450's.
