2009 spy photos? (anyone)

13 posts in this topic

Has anyone found some spy photos for the 2009 yet? Just wondering what in store for us next year. If they go to EFI I will probably not buy one. I don't like the idea of e start. Here is my list. WIder pegs, better exhaust and a bigger hit on the bottom. Maybe I'll just get me a leftover 2008.

I don't they will have electric start, and I doubt you will see EFI until 2010, maybe 09. They already got wide pegs in 08.

I use fastway pegs on mine and still wish they were a bit wider. I didn't originally like my bike when I first got it, however after the last few rides on it I'm hooked. I think I'll be getting a 2009 when they come out. I know everyone wants e start and EFI but I dont! I got my carb dialed and my bike starts first kick!

After reading the MXA's review of the fuel injection where it boggs coming fast into the corner, I will stick with the carb also.

FI is nothing special when it comes to mx bikes, not yet atleast. Look at the Zuk, it wasn't the be all end all that everyone kinda thought it would be. I would much rather see some real changes to the things that matter most in mx, like the chassis, which will aid in better handlign and cornering than to see them stick FI in there.

My wish list:

Drop two or three pounds throughout the bike. Fix the pipe/power issue. Add "the button" (about six to eight pounds) for a net gain of 4 or 5 pounds. Forget the fuel injection for now - my carb works perfect. Could you imagine a fine tuned YZ450 with no baggage - just electric start. (keep the kick start as a backup). Where do I sign?

They have all the parts already a la WR450. Just don't add all the other fluff.

I have an inside source that tells me that one of the improvements will be bold new graphics.
