YZF450 is Green Sticker and WR450 is RED!

9 posts in this topic

Can someone explain why the YZF450 Quad is a Green Sticker ORV and the WR450 bike is RED? This makes no sense to me...

usalay the quads get a green sticker in the USA because they have CV carbs stock {so you can ride in crazy angles with out the unit sputtering. cv carb= less emmissions= grenn sticker in the us.

I was looking on the CARB website one time and I read that in order to get a green sticker, a manufacturer had to certify that a bike meets emission standards AND he must certify that it will meet those standards for 5 years after sale. Additionally, if the vehicle falls out of standard, the manufacturer must fix the vehicle at no cost to the consumer.

I guess that Yamaha is more willing to stand behind the quads than the bikes.

According to Dirt Bike (October I think), the YFZ is even less corked up than the WR is. Difficult to understand why the quad would be green and not the WR :).

The quad has a baffled crankcase vent that is directed into the intake steam, and I am sure there is a few other small details.
