Greetings to all:

I just ordered a White/Red YFZ450 and understand "sometime?" in July it will be in. Has any one recieved theirs yet? Please leave a post here when you first recieved yours, where your located, and what color you purchased. It will be interesting to see where in the country they start showing up first.

Thanks to all, :D

I just bought (put 100 bucks down) on my Blue YFZ. It suppost to be here at the end of june / begginning on July. I'll get a call on it as soon as it ships out here. My Price out the door was $7503.22

I also might be hooking up with DFR racing in Phoenix so they can install a 450 kit, and lots of internal porting and polishing, and such so they can develope a kit. That should really wake the motor up :eek:

I got my YFZ450 tonight!!!

I picked up my wife's White/Red YFZ tonight. I knew from the specs on the quad, it was going to be decent, but after riding it, it definatly exceeded my expectations. First and foremost, I was especially impressed with how smooth the transmission shifted. Absolutley increadable!!! :D I pulled the air box lid after my initial ride and did notice the bike was slightly louder with the lid off but did make a little more power from 1/4 throttle to WFO. I didn't have time to post any pics but I will have some pics posted this weekend.

I bought the YFZ quad for my wife. Boy...I will tell you though, I may seriously consider selling my Arens framed, PEP ZPS suspended,ESR 265 powervalved R for a YFZ 450. Obviously, I need more time to completely evaluate the YFZ. I guess I like the idea of just premium gas, no top end rebuilds 3 times a year and the same power to weight ratio as my pimped ESR 265 R. I plan on taking the YFZ450 for a long trail ride this Sunday June 29th. I will keep you posted, I can't say where I bought it because I have a couple of friends that work there, but I picked it up for $6874.82 out the door Tax & Title included.[/SIZE]

YFZ ride review

I can't believe it's stock!!! FINALLY.../Someone (Yamaha) has come out with a worthy race quad. Anyway, I rode my wifes YFZ 450 approx 52 mile of trail riding this past Sunday. I can't believe the engineering that went into this project. Absolutley Amazing!!! The 5 speed gear box provides smooth and absolutley flawless shifting. The erganomics of the bike superceed the TRX250 ( in my opinion). And the(USABLE) power is like no quad I have ever ridden, including my pimped 88 ESR powervalved 265r. The YFZ450 quad will change the pro level sport quad racing industry.

Shortly after recieving mine I decieted to make a few modifications.

1. I removed the air box lid
2. I raised the needle (or Dropped the clip 1 position) to compensate for more air flow.
3. I flipped my front rims (temporararly til I can swing +2 A-Arms or somebody makes them).

Aside from that, everything else is stock.

I dragged a buddies 500 piped Zilla and pulled him1 bike length every gear. He did have overall top speed flat out on me for sure though, by maybe 8-10 mph. With the air box lid off and no jetting change his Zilla 500 just beat me by maybe 1 bike length.

I raced another friend both cross country (trail), and dragged on a dirt road with his Raptor and beat him every time, until he claimed his Raptor was gone...He is getting a YFZ!!!

Aside for the location of the Rear master resivor, I am very impressed with the YFZ. I plan on selling my Arens framed PEP ZPS suspended ESR 265r power valved R so I can keep up with my wife. While a 15K R might out handle this quad, the power of any R...Power valve or not, is OLD SCHOOL compared to the power of thie YFZ450!!!

I never thought I would switch from an R to a 4 stroke ! ! !
