ENGINE

  • All-New 450cc Four-Stroke Engine
    The new 2023 YZ450F’s engine has been completely redesigned, now with a 500 rpm higher rev limit. Among the changes are new exhaust and intake port shapes, larger diameter titanium intake valves, new piston, cylinder, crankshaft and balancer assembly, and a switch from wet sump to dry sump lubrication. The combined effect of these features is more power across the entire rev range in a lighter, more compact engine.
  • New Yamaha Power Tuner App
    The free-of-charge Yamaha Power Tuner App brings the power of the GYTR® Power Tuner to your iOS® or Android® device. Using wireless connectivity to talk to the bike’s onboard CAN-bus network, the app allows owners to adjust air/fuel mixture and ignition timing to tune engine performance for track conditions, record race log information and monitor a range of data such as maintenance and system diagnosis, engine run time and more. New for 2023, the app has been revised to be more user-friendly. New features include an intuitive “Simple Tuning” slide bar for engine mapping, Traction and Launch Control tuning, lap timer, along with engine and suspension tuning guides. Additionally, new lightweight handlebar-mounted switchgear allows on-the-fly selection of preloaded engine maps.
  • New Traction Control & Updated Launch Control
    An all-new Traction Control System communicates wheel slip to the ECU, tuning the engine to maintain ideal rear wheel traction. Three levels can be selected: HIGH, LOW or OFF. The updated Launch Control System continues to implement traction control and now features an rpm limiting setting, which can be adjusted in 500 rpm increments between 6,000 rpm and 11,000 rpm. Both systems are controlled through the new Yamaha Power Tuner App.
  • Advanced Fuel Injection
    The engine breathes through a 44mm Mikuni® throttle body fed by a high-pressure electric pump to ensure optimum fuel atomization and power for a wide range of riding conditions. The ultra-compact throttle body also saves weight and improves mass-centralization.
  • New Compact Lightweight Clutch
    The all-new clutch design replaces the coil springs of the previous model with a new disc spring and integrates primary gear and basket into a single steel unit. The result is a more compact, lightweight and durable assembly which yields smoother engagement and excellent feel. A new clutch cover employs a stylish geometric design that helps minimize scratching and lends a premium look.
  • New Five-Speed Transmission
    All new tri-shaft transmission layout vertically stacks the transmission shafts, raising the center shaft and forming a triangle between the crank, drive shaft and main shaft for a lighter, more compact transmission.
  • New Air Intake
    Optimized intake path draws air from under the side covers and seat allowing for a lighter, slimmer and more compact shroud area. This redesign allows the airbox cover to be lower and more narrow and radiator shrouds to be slimmer.
  • Electric Starter System
    The YZ450F features a compact electric starter system to minimize restart delays on track and add convenience everywhere else. Powered by a high-capacity and ultra-lightweight four-cell lithium-ion battery, the system adds minimal weight.

 

CHASSIS/SUSPENSION

  • All-New Aluminum Bilateral Beam Frame
    Striking the perfect balance of precise cornering performance and handling stability, the completely redesigned aluminum bilateral beam frame consists of more than 10 different aluminum components welded together. This provides the opportunity to carefully tune rigidity and flex characteristics of each component to ensure competition-level performance. The result is a better handling machine with lighter feel, improved bump absorption and increased traction, allowing the rider to enter corners with greater confidence and more line choices.
  • Revised Class-Leading Suspension
    High-spec fully adjustable Speed Sensitive System KYB® coil spring-type fork provides exceptional bump absorption.

    A new slimmer, flatter and more compact body eases rider movement for improved control, including more seamless, rounded features from seat edges and side covers to a more narrow fuel tank and front shroud. The rider triangle is also improved with increased legroom between the seat and footpegs, and revised handlebar position for a more natural posture and enhanced rider comfort.
  • Strong, Lightweight Wheels
    Careful computer-aided design of each wheel’s cross-sectional profile shaves weight without sacrificing durability. The YZ450F’s rear wheel comes laced with a three-cross-spoke pattern for improved impact absorption and rider feel.
  • Triple Clamp with Adjustable Handlebar Mounts
    The top triple clamp design balances rigidity for improved steering feel while the four-position adjustable handlebar clamp is rubber-mounted for comfort, reduced handlebar vibration and easily tunable bar position.
