I spent a little saddle time on an '03, and that had to be the pinnacle of Yamaha 's power 450 engine. That engine was explosive as far as power!! My buddy after a frustrating season on his '03 ended up adding a flywheel weight, and he was SOOOOO HAPPY !!! The flywheel weight made his YZ450 a "fun" and a managable bike to ride again....

told you dude.... wheelies, any gear, any speed.

pretty fun huh ????? you get used to the power, but it takes awhile.

like they tell me about riding a 500 2 stroke, you get used to it.
