– 2003 Yamaha YZ450F Review
2003 Yamaha YZ450F
Introducing the all-new, all-powerful, all-light YZ450F.
Just how revolutionary is it?
We’ve forged a totally new machine from the Dunlops up. With features like an all-new, liquid-cooled, 5-titanium valved 449cc single, with a completely redesigned automatic decompression system for easy-starting. An all-new 4-speed transmission and a beefed up clutch with larger, stronger plates.
Lighter weight frame and swingarm. Completely revised suspension, stronger brakes and more aggressive ergos and styling. And its incredible weight loss makes it harder-hitting and sharper handling than ever.
