BREAKING NEWS, THIS JUST IN!

2005 YZ450F and YZ250F will have an aluminum frame. The sales guy down at DelAmo sports assures me this to be true. I told him I thought that was only for the 125 and 250. Being as he was the sales guy and should know more than me just the lowly consumer I did not argue it with him. I am just stoked to get a new 450 with an aluminum frame before anyone else. I'll be sure to post my first report when I take delivery and of course pics will follow.

Hope the sales guys at Del Amo are more knowledgeable than the parts guys. :thumbsup:

There is definately some wrong information there. They will not be aluminum frames.

Yeah, that was supposed to be a sarcastic post. Since Yamaha and all the mags have said no AL frames for the 4 strokes in 05.

Oh did I mention he said he saw one with his own eyes.

:thumbsup: Hope you're still being sarcastic.

"First Impression: 2005 YZF450"

Quoting:Although it still suffers slightly from a steel frame and the inherent handling issues that come along with it, Yamaha really did do their homework and answer the call of consumers who demanded a more rideable bike.

Still being sarcastic. My point was that the sales guy is an idiot. I've been reading TT for 2yrs now. I think anyone who has some sort of clue knows that the 450 DO NOT have an AL frame for 05.

Magazines never cease to amaze me. "Slick new titainium footpegs".......didn't these guys ride an 04? Make you question the rest of the article.

It's all perception...last year had "All-new, wide, cleated, folding titanium footpegs" BUT this year...they're "SLICK"! :thumbsup:

:awww: Slick footpegs, sounds dangerous! :thumbsup:

The only major change for 05' is the Fork, right??

Now you know why the are called Del Lame "O"

The only major change for 05' is the Fork, right??

Forks, swingarm, rear linkage, shock, lots of internal engine mods, new front brake routing, new front brake guards.

That sums it up quickly.

My point was that the sales guy is an idiot.

You find this unusual in some way??
