Transworld write up...06 YZ 450

756 - 739 = 17 (% Better turning). No bike turns good on 739's. Why do they even put them on stock? 06 CRF450R now come with 756s.

'06 CRF450 comes w/742 front - 756 rear. The 742 is almost as bad as the 739. I run the 756RR front and it works excellent on most surfaces. The 742 goes back on the bike when I sell.

The 739 front works well at most of the tracks in So Cal. So does the 756! It depends on track prep, how much water, dicing, and how much sand they have tilled in. They have been adding a lot of sand here lately. Some tracks that used to be hard pack/blue groove all around are now intermediate to soft or a combination of both throughout the track! It not as simple as say PA where you guys are riding around in fresh loamy potting soil!

With Yamaha going full factory this year with the TI rear shock spring and all. Why not just have the bike stock with a set of 756's, RR in the rear? Too much to ask?

and why were at it, how about a hydrolic clutch.... :applause:

we are already at $7K plus and that would most likely add another couple hundred at least!

I like your thinking though.

I would like to see the bikes made to order myself. The buyer gets to pick rim color, plastic color, seat height, spring rate, type of tires, etc, from the factory

Mine didn't. I have 756 front and rear, and I don't think the dealer volunteered it.

Corrected: I feel so ... You are right Science. I would have bet $100 that it was a 756, but it's a 742. I stand corrected. But, it sticks pretty good!
