Why are Canadian 450's different?

14 posts in this topic

I bought a 04' US model YZ 450F for a great price locally in July $5,700.00 out the door. I am very happy with the bike and would buy it again if I had to do it all over again. At the time I considered having a Canadian bike shipped to me. I was talked out of it because it is a different model than the ones here in the USA. I was just curious what is actually different about the Canadian models? :cry::cry: ?

The Canadian one falls over a lot. You know those Canadians don't stand up for anything :cry:

You know how you can tell it's a French one. It has a 6 speed. 5 in reverse and one neutral. :cry::cry:

the only difference is the silencer is cone shaped instead of a stinger i bought an 01 426 & a 03 450 there they both came with two complete top end kits each {rings circlips & gaskets} service manuals three jets spoke wrench& plug wrench & the rubber flap for the air box. i saved $900 on the 426 & $800 on the 450.

You know how you can tell if its an italian one. It falls from side to side depending on who looks like they are winning. :cry::cry:

But you can tell its a US one when it gets caught four years after the event for using banned substances. :cry::cry::cry:

Correct! No contingency for Canadian imported machines in US events. Each country has a distinct company. Yamaha USA isn't too keen to pay contingency on bikes they did not import. The 30 day YZ warranty is void as well. Other manufacturers, Suzuki and Kawasaki , also take a dim view of machines brought into the USA from Canada.
