I have a 09 yz250f and plan to move up to the 450 next year, just curious if my suspension would be interchangable with the 09 450. Luckly it was revalved a little on the stiff side when I had it done so with some clicker adjustments it should be great setup wise if it would transfer over.

Your forks will be too short, and your 450 will be 15 pounds too heavy for the springs.
