I have a 2006 YZ 450 that I used for trail ridding. It's a great bike and hasn’t given any problems. Just happen to run across a 07 & 08 model YZ 450 for sale that should to be in very good condition. Before moving forward, are there any differences good or bad that I should be aware of?

Thanks in advance for the tips.

the 08 will turn a lot better and the 08 will be a whole more mellow on power but has great traction

If your 06 is in good shape, its probably not worth it unless you really want a different bike.
