My 2014 first ride report

15 posts in this topic

Finally pulled the trigger and went blue again its been a while ...... My last yammi was a 08 that i loved ,when it was time for a new bike i keep believing all the bad reports about the 2010-2013 (my mistake) so i had several hondas and suzukis since. I broke my right foot 6 months ago 2011 suzuki that i loved sold to pay bills lol, so im ready again and i really wanted to try the yz again man i love this thing , turns awesome, great suspension and the power is great. My friends were there on there 13 honda and 13 suzuki i ruined there day when i let them ride my bike they were pissed they didnt get a yz im a + 30 b rider i didnt change a thing all day other then moving the bars foward i cant be happier ImageUploadedByThumper Talk1396750110.040129.jpgImageUploadedByThumper Talk1396750370.312560.jpg

I had a chance to ride the new 450.  I was really impressed with the power of that bike.  My main ride is a YZ250 so it took some getting use to the four stroke but I have to admit I really like the 450.  That thing had loads of power and gear selection wasn't as crucial as it is with my 250 two smoker.

I wasent thinking about putting a pipe on it till i read mxa's pipe reviews on the bike they say the drd pipe is awesome and i have always put the dr on my yamahas so at a little over 500 im going to put the bling on :)

That bike doesn't need anymore power.  I don't think I've ever said that before.

 

Either way I wonder how many more ponies you would get with a aftermarket full exhaust system.

I've heard they are the slowest of the 450s out but who cares.  Unless your really bad ass I don't think it matters that much.  I hear they are pretty smooth and easy to ride.  I would be happy with a crf450.

It's nice a nice bike but I seriously think my 2 stroke yz250 is faster. My moto buddy was pulling me hard in 3rd gear and I was the same speed as him on my 06 yz450. It woul bog out trying to shift to 4th in the sand. It's pathetic really.

The current crf 450 is a dog the ktm 350 makes more power, the handling isnt that good and the air forks arent anywhere as good as the yamaha forks
