Hi, I ride an 02 yz426, which I have always felt like it sits fairly high, but recently I rode a friends 06 yz450, and felt much more comfortable. It felt like you sit down in the bike lower and I felt more in control. I was wondering if there is some kind of major difference in the frame on the 06 that changes the seat height, or just suspension setup? Will the extra inch or two from shaving the seat foam make a noticeable difference in ride height? Thanks
