My new project YZF450

Update: Stator replaced and the YZF is now running great. Put a several hours of seat time on it last weekend and the bike is SOOOOO MUCH BETTER THAN ANY BIKE I HAVE EVER RIDDEN BEFORE.

The handling.....I am cornering faster than I ever thought about on the smoker.....and I have not gotten the front end to push.....so there is more speed as I gain more trust. Shifting is scary good. No need to speed shift with the clutch or back off the throttle to shift......move your foot and is shifts.....even at WFO.

Jumps I was slamming into the face of to get over......the 450 leaps over.

I never thought there would be this much of a difference!

Here is the latest. Suspension freshened up with stock valving and big boy springs. Graphics by local company Cal Graphics. Gripper seat cover. Wheels swapped from my 250.
