Hey TT,

I have a 2006 yz450f runs great and i love it. Suspension is done, new sprockets and chain ect.... so whats next? Im looking for a practical upgrade. I dont care too much about looks, think power and weight.

Have you done exhaust? I wouldn't worry to much about weight

I have a aftermarket header and a stock exhaust , so maybe a slip on would be good.

Oversized front brake rotor went on my bike before I rode it, maybe an accelerator pump cover, and of course jetting if you go with a slip on.

New boots and a stabilizer!

After suspension I would say an oversize front rotor or a steering stabilizer is your next bang for your buck!

What about a Boyesen Super Cooler water pump? Can really help temps in low speed technical riding.

Air Screw and Quick Shot Carb mods, Big front brake, DR.D radiator lowering kit, and a Slip on....and a bunch of air-filters so you can ride non-stop. I loved my '06 and should of kept it for an extra bike.

Flexx handlebars would be a complimate to your suspension.
