I appreciate the help and advice with my very low hour 03 YZ450. While it was a gem, it just never felt "right" to me and as a result, I just flat didn't enjoy riding it. I have traded it on an orange machine that cycles every 2nd stroke and love it. It is what I wanted in the first place but thought I would try the 450s. I tried it, not for me. Take care, and thanks again.
