06 YZF450's at Glen Helen this weekend..pic

11 posts in this topic

At the Vet Nationals at Glen Helen this weekend we saw a few 06 450's racing. Dubach was on one of the LE yellow models and I saw two other regular guys on LE's and one blue one that raced. Chapparral Motorports had a few on the showroom floor also, so they ought to be out everywhere soon I would guess. Here is a pic I got of a blue one Dubach Racing had on display at the track with their pipe on it, thought you guys might want to see it.

" I don't need a new bike my '05 is good" If I keep repeating that to myself, maybe it will work

Just curious on the low boy header.....still in the way of the oil filter. ...damn I thought this was a thing of the past...it must be that it is a performance issue..

That's a full aftermarket (custom, I would think at this point) header pipe. How much more performance does a mere mortal man need??

:banghead:

I must tell myself... the extra weight of the 01' keeps it stable in the whoops... scrubbing jumps is no fun if the bike is easy to bring back... a whip is more impressive if you're still sideways when you land it... no year has a motor like the 01'... Diapers are more important than an 06'.... help guys, I need your help here...

For me it's easy, I'm still afraid of my '00 426.
