I went through 2 sets of valves on my 02 crf. Tired of the maintanance so I went back to blue. I had an 00 426 that was bulletproof and am glad to be back on the blue. I bought an 06 YZ450f yesterday at power yamaha in Or. for 5899. It was the cheapest I could find in WA or OR. Maybe a little high but this is one sweet bike. I don't understand the vague steering issues. I slid the forks up and it turns amazingly and handles even better. I'm glad to be riding blue again!
