Default Re: Good news, bad news - My suspension guy hired by Yamaha

     

I was a hard core Honda man until I rode a 06 YZ450. Compared to my 05 CRF450 it was just way more civilized. It had nice smooth power, great suspension, great brakes and felt way lighter.

I rode an 07 CRF450R and the one thing that I noticed was the really good front end traction and lean angle traction. It handled switchbacks really well and the front brake felt really strong. But other than that it felt pretty much like my 05. The Yamis just feel more solid to me. Their motors are quieter and they feel like they are put together better. I always compared the Yami to a Corvette and the Honda to an old muscle car. Both are the same speed, but the Corvette just does it in a more civilized fashion.
