Just picked up this 06 450 bike for track riding. I know it's a little oversprung for me, but I honestly like that for the track. Valved for track trails for the previous owner. Other than that, it's pretty stock as far as the handling goes. Fork height is at the first line down I think. MX51 tires, 90 front/120 rear. It's hard to keep the front end knifing through ruts, especially if I'm on the gas at all. It'll want to climb up the side of a berm without some major steering input. I have a YZ250 as my trail bike and just threw a Rekluse E-axle on it yesterday. Before, it shared the same lazy cornering characteristics, even with the sag at 100mm and the forks at the second line down, although much more manageable than the 450. I can whip that 250 around like nobodys business with or without the modified offset, but this 450 feels like trying to steer an aircraft carrier in comparison. I plan on putting the second E-axle I bought on this 450, but is there anything else I could do to get this thing to carve through corners? Aside from that I actually love the bike. Good aggressive power to the motor and jumps nice and predictable.
