On the verge of getting 06 yzf 450 so I went back 20 pages or so on this forum looking for blown engines, valves destroyed, seized motors etc. on the 06's and can't seem to find any at all. On my 250F forums you don't have to look far to find disasters on new bikes. Anybody dealt with the Los Angeles Yamaha/Aprilia in Marina Del Ray? They are selling 06's for 6300$ OTD.
