offroad "smoothness"

9 posts in this topic

do you guys think these two things would help the yz450f (2007) become a better all around machine (track and alot of woods, thus smoothness is crucial).

The flywheel would be the better of the two choices.

If you really want to make it a smooth woods machine get a Rekluse Z-start Pro clutch.

I've got both products on my 08 YZ450F and yes it is smoother. I've used the G2 throttle cams on all my bikes and didn't even attempt to ride my 450 until I got my G2. I run the 200 cam most of the time on my 450 and a 300 cam and a GYTR Off-Road flywheel on my 06 YZ250 2-stroke.

I ride my 06 yz450f on trails all the time and the flywheel weight works wonders on tight sections and it helps to prevent stalls while giving the flywheel the extra momentim needed to manipulate the toughtest trails.

I have a 06' 450 and was wondering if the heavier flywheel makes the engine feel more tame like a WR. I enjoy the the thrill of the feel of power my bike has, and this is my 3rd yammie 4 stroke, so stalling the bike is no longer a major issue for me, but when cruising down long trails it would be a little nicer to have the bike surge less/be smoother. Would the flywheel help with smoothness while cruising down the trail without killing the thrill of the power to the point of making it boring??

Thanks,

C

Absolutely. The effect of the flywheel is very subtle, and in no way makes the bike either feel sluggish, or loose any actual performance at speed. As you roll the throttle open at low speeds, you find yourself thinking, "This thing is really running smooth today", or something like that. You will notice that traction seems particularly good. You will definitely NOT get the impression that your bike has suddenly turned into an XR600.

In fact, if I installed one in your bike without your knowledge you might never figure out why it suddenly works so much better than it did.
