WR450F Newbie

Hellow everyone I'm new to the forum. I will be the proud owner of a new WR450F in a few weeks. Re-finacing the house so just waiting to have the cash in my hand and then it's over to the Yamaha dealer. I have a ton of questions about this bike.

I've got a wr450 myself and its great, I think now its a bit over the top power wise, [@#$%&*!] hill climbs can be a real handfull. I've read that the 250s are a much better ride, but the 450s are still awesome. Doesnt hurt to check out the ktm450 too, they're getting a real good wrap at the moment, either way good luck and have a ball! :)

well I have looked at the KTM's and they are great looking bikes but I've been a Yamaha rider for over 20 years and I'm sticking with them.....

Congratulations :- Helmet on, Sit on, Hold on, Your GONE!!!!

Blisterin POWER....

Bike's Blue you wont be. :)

I'm very ready for the WR450F. I've been riding a 1984 Yamaha TT600 since 1987. Don't get me wrong, the TT600 is incredible reliable bike and never any engine or trany problems. It just keeps on going. but it's time for a upgrade!

I will say, You are due for an upgrade big time! How did you manage to keep that old TT running all these years? Parts still available? You earned the WR450 for sure! :) Welcome aboard. You will find TT real helpful and all the members are great. :D

Never really never had any problems with the TT600 except for the frame and one other time the air filter came loose and sucked in a bunch of dirt and dust, then it just wiped out the cylinder and started smoking really bad. But I rebuilt the engine and put a big bore piston and sleeve in it. The frame broke in a few places and had to have it welded quite a few different times. But I rode my TT600 like a YZ rider would ride. I jumped it, rode it very very hard for years and it just kept going. It's almost as fast as my brother's 98 YZ400F but he still can pull me pretty good in a race. I still have the TT and will never get rid of it. But now it's due for a new fuel tank. It's starting to crack and leak gas. Thank god for JB weld. LOL Just waiting now for my home re-finance money and then it's off to the good ole Yamaha shop for a real dirtbike!!!!
