What do you think of your 2008 YZ450F?

Has anyone used it for desert? How does it pull with tall gearing? Sorry for the thread jack but I'm considering one myself as well :lol:

I use mine primarily for desert. I was at 14/48 for a while before installing a WR transmission. The 14/48 was great for open desert, but got a little tall for real slow stuff. The bike pulled the gearing well, I just had to emphasize being in the correct gear. Although, I am happier with the WR transmission.

How much was this conversion, as far as parts go? Just curious. Was any machining required?
