'09 YZ450F...First Day...Damn...

8 posts in this topic

I've ridden two dirt bikes (for about a half hour each) over the past 12 years...so I've been WAY away from the sport. Took delivery of my new YZ450F yesterday morning...and man...what a bike. After a couple hours of tweaking and tooling around, I opened her up. Sweat smooth power that just keeps coming on. I though I'd be a little intimidated by it...but nope. It's got better manners than the Queen of England! Totally rideable...even after 12 years of no dirtin'. Can't wait to get it to the MX track...

I too thought that I would be a little intimidated when I got my 06 YZ450F, but she was easy to ride. But be carefull they can still bite you in the a$$. A six inch titanium plate and screws on my left forearm, made me realize this baby's got balls.

I bought an 03 yz450f in December and am just rebuilding it. Coming off a CR500 which I sold in the fall and was unsure what to expect from the 450. Posts like this make me happy. :thumbsup:

The '03 is a lot like a CR500 in many ways, but it's still a 4-stroke, and there really is no comparison. Much easier to ride and manage.

I loved the 500 but it was too unpredictable, you never knew what was going to happen when you cracked the throttle. Will it hook and fly or spin and snake down the track. I am hoping the 450 has alot smoother predictable (usable) power band that doesn't burn you out in 2 laps. Easier to ride sounds good. :thumbsup:
