I will definally put up a review.I am going to try to ride on wednesday after class to break it in and get used to my first 450.Then I will be racing it at the Boo Koo Arenacross on friday.I sure hope its easy to get used to.

So far this is what I have ready to put on it:

-ARC cnc folding brake perch with ball bearing contact point

-Works Connection Elite perch with hotstart

-Spyder grips

-and I am ordering my pre-prints backgrounds today

If I remember correctly this is the setup I am after:

drop the forks 5mm

and 97mm of sag

Is that correct?I know if thats not right, that is the setup for the 06 250f.

2006 YZF450 (posted from Burned)

I can say one thing for sure, the stock yzf jetting will be super lean at sea level.

This bike ended up with a 48 pilot jet a 162 main here at 5500 ft.

It will be able to stand a 158 in the summer.

At sea level you will need a 48 pilot and 170-172 main jet.
