The only diff I have heard mentioned more than a couple times is;
The '08 turns a little better than '06 and '07. Doubt it's a huge difference though.
I thought my '99 turned pretty well, not THAT much worse than my '08.:thumbsup:

The 08 frame makes the bike turn/handle, in my opinion, more like a big 250F than a true 450. The 07 was a good bike. In my opinion the 08 put the YZ450F back on the map as a near-great bike for mx and off-road racing.

I have a 2007 and my buddy has a 2008 and I cant tell the difference when riding them.
