Hey guys... I just about gave up on this YZ450F ever turning worth a dang. Listen, I've faithfully owned YZ's/YZF's for the last ten years and they have never been great turning bikes. Not really bad...just not really great. Anyway, this 450 has turned like a runaway freight train. Until recently that is. I put the forks all the way up in the clamps (as far as they would go) and set 102mm of race sag. I should mention that I ride only in sand. No hard pack so I can't speak for that. This baby really is excellent now. I love it! I should mention that I also tightened my steering stem bearing a bit more than it should be to act as a type of steering damper. Not an RMZ yet but light years better than it was!!! All I can say is wow did I ever finally have an all around great time. I hope this can work for some of you too.
