2009 Yamaha Lineup

Recommended Posts

All of Yamaha's 2009 machines are set to be released today at 3pm eastern time zone. Yamaha insiders I know won't give me details but they tell me I may want to switch from red to blue. We will have to wait and see. I don't know what Yamaha would have to come up with in order for me to switch. I love the Rhino but other than that, I'm not a fan of Yamaha's ergonomics.

What is with everyone putting 50" width on there 450s now. That sucks unless you do nothing but track or dunes. At least do what Can Am did and make a mx version and a xc version.

i think its great! that saves bundles of cash and extended a arms, brake lines, tie rods and etc.

and all of our trails are ATLEAST 2 quad length which is about 8 or 9 feet wide. so extended a arms are jus added assurance for keeping the rubber side down(or shiny side up as you refer to it :laugh:)

and besides there is still the regular yfz450 that is narrower and single rate shocks for xc.

about yamaha copying can am. yamaha actually had this layout for months before can am even released the ds450. the only reason yamaha procrastinated releasing the yfz450r was because they were testing and fine tuning their GYTR accesories.

im actually very happy with the yfz's updates. yamaha made a very smart move releasing this bike. they are trying to keep up with the competition, unlike honda :skeptic:

Yup new exhaust and pegs too. Looks like Honda will be the last mfg with a carbureted 450.

i thought the new KTM's were still carb'd 2?? I love the new style and changes, minus the headlights are to high up in the plastic, and that friggin red seat cover looks like:vommit:... that seat design looks like it would be extremely comfortable!!! cause my tail is sore from th LT-r i raced yesterday:aargh::aargh:.. 50 inches can be handled in a tight hairscramble:wink::weapon: cause that lt-r led half the race in an tight pine thicket.

All that yfz needs is a set of 4-1 off-set wheels with razr 2's and a set of 20 razrs on the back and it would be a woods rocket!!!!!!!!!!!:yes:

All I have to say is who has the most victories in every kind of quad racing?

I would love to see you guys try and rip through the trails up here on a quad that is 50" wide. Most of the trails are 50" wide. That is why most GNCC racers run between 46"-48".

Different offset wheels in the front would knock it down to around 48".. i enjoyed passing the red 450's that were snagging trees and couldn't make the hill climbs:doa16:

That is the one thing that sucks about Colorado. We have some epic trails up here and there are NO racing series out here. Unless you race mx.

i beg to differ.

Polaris and KTM are just as major as Honda.

OK how about...

Honda will be the last OF THE BIG 4 Japanese mfg with a carbureted 450.:wink:

      I have a 2011 850 Sportsman.  Has been absolutely trouble free except for 1 thing. I am on my 4th. ignition switch. I don't know if it's that they are all chinese junk or what.  It gets to a point  when you turn the key and it will act like the battery is going bad. Cranks real slow or not at all. Put a new switch in and its fine. New one will last 1 1/2 - 2 years and its junk. I've had the Polaris brand and after market. As a matter of fact the original one lasted the lest amount of time.  Other than that it's been a perfect machine . No electrical problems. No battery problems. Just curious if anyone else has had the same issue.

      got 7 atvs off CL recently for a good price.  one of which is a yamaha warrior.  anyone know where the vin is printed on this bike?  Haha good place to start as I do not know year or size yet.  The former owner says needs exhaust ans and clutch work.  he said it ran fine until the clutch cable broke and then I couldn't get the new cable adjusted right and it would grind gears.  things I see:  clutch cable locked up again, no brakes, carb leaking (green with algae around the bowl and has gelled gas stalagtights on it), aftermarket exhaust melted the airbox so I need something different and a new air box.  I would like the use the current exhaust if I can but I have a feeling its a redneck fix as it looks like there is an ace bandage holding it to the exhaust pipe (its an aftermarket slip-on exhaust), so I'm not sure about that- lets get the bike running first.  also, battery (looks brand new, what a shame) is dead, 0 volts.  Otherwise, bike looks to have not been wrecked, and plastics are ok (it sat outside under a 'tarp' for 3+ years since it was run last).  any tips and advise on where to start first would be awesome as this is my first clutched bike (manual).
      the clutch is my main concern- I've never rode a clutched bike so I dont even know what its supposed to feel like.  lol I'm spoiled on my automatic polaris

      Does anybody know where I can buy a complete wiring harness for a Yamaha bear tracker. If not could someone send me a picture of the the colors of the wires coming out of the cdi plug and voltage rectifier. So I can get an idea of how I need to wire it. Also where can I find a wiring diagram for them?

      I recently acquired a Yamaha bear tracker 250 that does have a wiring harness.  Does anybody have a wiring diagram for the 250s. Also if you have a pin diagram that tells be the colors of the wires going to the cdi and rectifier or just a picture of the plugs would be much appreciated. I can’t find anything on the harness online. I have all of the switches and stuff and I plan on just build a harness myself because I can’t find one to buy.
