Hey guys,

Just picked up a 2015 YZ450F about a month ago. Have about 5 rides on it now. Im really loving the power of the bike but im having a hell of a time holding a line in the corners. Just wondering what everyone is running on these bikes to help with cornering.



Thanks!

Get a set of 14 clamps. Offset is different. Also send the suspension to Enzo and have them do the lower plate in the rear

This is a common issue with this model of bike. The power starts so low it lifts the front end in the corner when you give it throttle. Try setting more towards the front of the bike will help as well.

How’s that mod compared to a link. I’m most likely gonna end up going with Enzo but not sure yet.

Do you lightly drag the front brake a tiny bit in the corner? It helps me.

I never tried a link. I rode everything stock until I sent it to Enzo. All I know is that it made a huge difference! Ran 100mm of sag which is what Enzo recommended and it was so much better. I never really had an issue to begin with other than the pos mx51 front that came stock on my 14. But Enzo definitely made it handle even better

'14 and 15' both have 22mm clamps. In 2016 Yamaha went to 25mm clamps.
Try running your stock link with 100mm of sag and fork tubes flush.

For some reason I thought they changed it in 2015. I ran my forks flush until I had Enzo do everything

If you find the bike is too wide as well look into purchasing some Cycra Powerflow shrouds. They slim the bike down and it might just make the small adjustment for you to get your leg in the right position to make cornering easier.
