problems for '06?

23 posts in this topic

can anyone predict any problems for 2006 yz450F. i'm probably getting one so i was just wondering. it'll be mostly same engine as the yz250F right(but bigger)?

are the valves going to be a pain to check becuase of the frame?

id say it would be easier to check the valves as it is a perimeter frame,not like the old steel cradle that ran along the top of the head??

I have said it before that the oil temp will be higher. Yamaha put an oil squirter in the case to direct oil to the underside of the piston dome to reduce piston temp. Porsche did this mod for the 911 engine when head and piston temps started to run too hot with the bigger engine displacement. The frame will not be used as a heat sink so yamaha is trying a different way to lower the engine temp. Just change the oil more often and it should not be a problem. All the oil tank is in the engine now so change it sooner. Have fun with the new bike. Thanks Mark

Nope, your gonna be their little piggy. Yes of course they have done testing, Yamaha of all manufactures would not release a bike if it had problems. :banghead:

Whitey, you're going to have to learn to chill a little. You've already asked this question and had it answered, not by absolutely everybody, but so what? Go put a deposit on the 450 and wait for it to show up. And then get a bag of sunflower seeds, or something to keep you busy.
