Owners of the 2016 Yamaha 450 have a few things going for them. First, they have one of the best powerplants in the class in their bike. Second, they have conventional spring forks. Third, did I mention the forks? After a few years of having an open mind and trying to get air forks to work right I've given up. And the moment you ride the Yamaha and feel how a front end is supposed to feel again you might just have the same opinion. That said, there are some tips and tricks that we learned from the Yamaha staff, including former 125 supercross champion Travis Preston, that really allow this bike to shine. In this Dialed In we'll help you make your YZ all it can be.
