I love mine and hope you have as much fun on your as I do mine. Be safe, she can get you into trouble with all the power. Oh by the way get a D.I.D. VT "T" ring chain. I have already gone through 2 ERT2's. You have to oil non o x t ring chains every 10 min it seems.

cheers guys,yeh the pipes an aluminium pro,new chain and sprockets are on the way,didnt have what i wanted in stock at my local bike shop so its coming.

i had the wb header on it,but i thought id try the stock header,only because of the oil filter access,i know its only loosening a couple of bolts but!!ive got to say though,i really couldnt tell the difference between the stock header and the wb header,so i decided to leave the stock one on.

Beautiful bike, mate. Hurts me to hear it's that much better than an 03. That's what I have and it's way over what my 426 was. I may have to man up for that 08 model!

I have one of the first 08 450f's available (purchased in aug) and it is night and day better over my 06. Even though my 06 had more rip-it power, I am faster on the 08. I can throw this thing around like a 250f and wip it over the 100 footer at my local track without feeling out of control. Putting a 50 tooth rear on it made a huge difference at the track. Also changed the rear tire to a 110. Better handling in tight turns (in my opinion). I like the sound so I kept the can. can't stand a loud 4-stroker. best bike i ever owned or ridden.
