First New Bike in 12 Years...YZ450F

My first off-road bike since...before there were 4 strokes. Anybody have some tips for getting this puppy set up, checked out and rolling? I've broke in a half dozen 2 strokes in the past, but this 4 stroke business is new to me.

Can someone put a top-10 list together for getting these fancy new bikes ready for action? Thanks.

hey man same here first 4 stroke i got a new 2004 yz450f still in the box i always had yz250s don't even know how 2 change the oil is there a manual on here help whould be great thanks

Definitey check the common thread list, and definitely verify your jetting - it matters that much; could make your bike from zero to hero...:thumbsup:
