2006 yz450f: What mods to get?

25 posts in this topic

Hey guys, I just need some suggestions on some mods that you think I should do to my bike. It has a lot of them already, but I was just wondering if you guys had any ideas or something different. Please let me know. Here is a list of just some of the main mods that I already have:

-RG3 Upper and Lower tripple clamps

-Enzo suspension/revalve

-FMf Factory 4.1 w/ Powerbomb header

-Renthal Twinwall Bars

-Elite clutch perch

-Anodized stuff (engine plug kit, reservoir caps, rotating perches, exc)

-Renthal chain and sprocket (50 tooth)

I have the Zip Tye mod. I was thinking about the hour meter and definately the Wave rotors. I'm trying to decide if I should get both front and back or just front. I'm not sure about the water pump. Do you think that it is worth getting?

I also heard that when you upgrade the water pump and impeller, you could lose some power because it takes more power to run the pump. Not sure if it is true or not, I'm just saying what I heard. I'm still not really woried about that because the bike prolly has too much power for me anyways.

No :thumbsup:

Because the bike has no need of an improved water pump that I'm aware of. Therefore, it's money unnecessarily spent to accomplish nothing.

How do you like the RG3's? What offset are you using?

They are the 22mm off set. I like them...you can definately noticed the difference between a 2006 yzf with them and one without them. Just kinda pricey though.

Cool...So the bike turns much better now?

I've been on the fence for either the RG3's or Applied. What I'm perplexed by is that Applied triple clamps come in 24mm offset for the 06, but the RG's are like 22mm offsets. I've heard positive feedback from user's of the Applied, basically stating that the 1mm difference from stock (25mm) does in fact make a difference.

What I didn't want to do with the RG3's is go "too" far by changing the bike dimensions over stock, so when I see 22mm, that's a full 3mm difference. :thumbsup:

Yeah, I undertsand. The bike turns a lot better now with the clamps. My buddies in the same position as you are (Applied vs RG3) He is afraid of sacrificing his straight away stability for better turning ability. I believe that the applied are cheaper than the RG3 also. It's kind of a gamble...1mm could be too less, and 3 mm can be too much. I can notice a big difference though with an 2006 with clamps and one without clamps.

Yea, you hit the nail on the head about concerns related to high speed stability vs improved turning. That's a big dilema I'm restling with as well as the price differential of the RG3's compared to the Applied.

Thanks...

p.s. your avatar is scary!:thumbsup:

Do you have any details on the Enzo Mods, a re-valve? Springs? Or modded internals?

Do you like the results?

I think they call that BLING. But I do like the cool looking anodized plugs on the engine cover.

Maybe a real bike stand. That badazz bike needs something more than a milk crate. You can send me your milk crate, little easier to move than my tree stump.:thumbsup:
