Matt has had it done to his 08 and reports its SWWWWEEEEEEEEET!!!!!!! I took mine off today and ran it over to Enzo. I'll let ya know how it is after the race next weekend. With all the company's out there who do suspension, or claim to be suspension "guru's", Enzo has got to be the best. As Gray Racer would tell me, "Thats the biggest understatement I've ever heard" or something like that:bonk: Basicly everyone i know who uses them, from AMA pros to guys who race the vet class swear by Enzo.

I raced the over the hill gang National at Glen Helen on Saturday. It was a nice day. Day 2 was cancelled on Sunday due to high winds and loss of power. I raced at Comp. Edge on Sunday and it was perfect. However, coming home down the hill past Glen helen, there were overturned big rigs on the 215 and 15 and some brush fires all around the area. Things should be back to normal by this weekend for Glen helen. As for Enzo being burnt down? Negative!!! I was there today.

Thats faster than me. I'm an old fart. I run 2 classes. 43-49 amateur with vet x and 45 novice with the over the hill gang. Moving up since i got back into this a year ago after taking 25 years off to race streetbikes. Are you doing both the Vetx amatuer nationals and Xtreme prize giveaway series? I will be at cahuilla this Sunday! Perris the following! Look me up #924 06 and 08 Yz 450. My best lap time was a 2:30. at comp edge sunday. Those guys in your class are a good 10 -15 seconds faster. Whats your name?

My best lap was a 2:16 but the winner turned a 2:11, I'll run the Xtreme series but might run a couple of the Amatuer nationals. My name is Ben West #33 08 YZ450F.

Is the 08 really that much better than the 06? Is the turning the biggest improvement that you notice - hopefully?

It really is supposed to turn better than the 07 which was better than the 06. I think if you get the suspension dialed in it will be very good. You can't beat the longevity of the yamaha motor and it sounds like they are very easy to ride once again. After a lot of debate I'm picking up an 08 YZ450 next week and I'll let you know how it is stock and also revavled eventually. Good luck with your choice Rick and let me know.

by far its hard to make the front end brake traction, and the bike just goes where you point it. Its stupid how good this bike handles.

I'm glad to hear that it's that much better for you Matt. I'm picking up my blue 08 YZ450 next week and can't wait to get it. Did enzo slow down the rebound? Did the suspension work improve the cornering drasticly? I plan on getting the suspension done but just wondered how good it was before and what changed handling wise afterward.
