new 07 yz 450

just picked up a new used (rode twice) yz, I mostly trail ride, I know not the practical bike but I couldn't resist. What are the must do mods?? I don't know much about these bikes, just wondering about any must haves

If it has a Dunlop 739(hard pack tyre) front tyre on it, you might want to change it to suit the terrain you ride in, the Dunlop 756 is popular.

The YZ is actually a GREAT trail bike as well as an MX wepon. I would suggest bumping up the rear sprocket 2 teeth, and you are done. The '07 YZ is an amazingly versatile bike!

oh it's a practical bike. rear tire is fine. just go to a 51 tooth, skid plate, rad guards, new o ring chain and grease the swing arm, steering head. and you have an awesome trail bike.

definatley replace teh chain with a quality o ring. Get an actual skid plate. An hourmeter is a good idea. Its a cheap way to keep track of things. Get a magnetic drain plug too.

Yes chain (mine broke)

Suspention is #1, cost about 500.00.
