07 Limited Edition first ride report

15 posts in this topic

Just got back from riding the new 07 YZ450. It was a short ride and the bike is brand new and really tight. I loved everything about the new bike except the motor. Dirt Rider was right....the 07 doesn't have any beans down low. After looking at the outlet of the boat ancor they call a muffler I noticed it was about the size of what should be on a TTR90. I quickly installed an 06 tail section and I'm happy to report the bike is strong! The 07 is a great bike, just remember to replace the tail section. The new header looks to be a stepped design and should work really well with any after market muffler! Looking forward to riding the bike again and doing a full test on it in the near future! Hopefully the 07 KX450 will be in next week and I'll be able to do a side by side evaluation! I'm expecting a lot from the KX this year!

So.....after you switched silencers did it have better low end than your 06? Did you notice improved turning?

My 06 has been modified so it's not a fair comparison and I didn't get to ride the 07 very long due to the weather. I'll know more next week. But, the pipe switch is a must! The new pipe is quiet .......however, there are better choices out there for both quiet and performance!

Yeah it's good that it's quiet, but not if it completely ruins our fun. Would you say that the power down low is smooth or just not there at all?

I am curious on this side by side eval - I think the KXF will be the total bike this year....

Good write up, post some pictures of the beast! I won't be getting one, but it sounds to me like overall power, the '06 in stock form is better? Hows the longer rear shock, and other minor changes they made feel?
