2010 Yamaha YZ450F First Look, Picture, Reviews , and Specification The high-capacity, long-stroke suspension system helps smooth over the bumps, while keeping you in contact with the road surface. The YZ450F is the biggest advantage an off-road racer can have. Now it’s up to you to do the rest.Yamaha is releasing an entire line of factory designed and tested accessories to complement your new YZ. Some of the most notable upgrades are the GYTR Ported Cylinder Head Assembly, (the same one James Stewart uses in AMA Supercross) and a GYTR Power Tuner. The handheld unit allows you to adjust your 2010 YZ450F’s engine settings including both fuel and ignition curves anywhere with a push of the button. What has taken so long for someone else to finally reverse the freaken cylinder head. Cannondale and now ATK has been doing it for years. It makes total sense so what's taking so long. It look's like Yamaha took the best of the cannondale of yesteryears and the husaberg of today to make one beautiful. Hopefully we will see these changes on the WR. Then you will have my check. The look keep it up yamaha and great idea of moveing the gas tank under the seat. i wish all the yamaha racers out there on the track and win another for yamaha. i cant wait till i can get my hands on one this spring. Yamaha has been secretive about the 2010 Yamaha YZ450F, but it looks like the wait was worth it. A new aluminum frame and swingarm are used, with the main frame constructed out of sixteen different pieces of aluminum designed to provide optimum rigidity and feel. The 2010 Yamaha YZ450F looks ready for dirt and we are looking forward to doing a full-test very soon. The entire rear suspension was reengineered in order to keep the rear shock in the center of the machine, a position previously used by the airbox (now repositioned to the front of the motorcycle). Reworked triple clamps hold last year’s ultra-plush Kayaba Speed Sensitive fork and reduce offset down to 22mm (from 25mm). The fork also benefits from 10mm longer suspension stroke, updated damping characteristics and still offers both compression and rebound damping adjustment.
Engine
YZ450F - A revolutionary machine made for supreme cornering.Races are won and lost in the corners, so the YZ450F has been designed to corner better than ever before, letting you turn in sooner, get on the throttle quicker and stay on it for longer. The YZ450F features a revolutionary fuel injected, liquid-cooled, 4-stroke, 4-valve, DOHC, rearward-slanting single cylinder engine and an advanced Bilateral Beam aluminium frame with components distributed for a perfect mass-centralisation and class-leading handling.For 2010 the YZ450F’s engine employs revolutionary new ideas we’ve never seen on a Japanese motocross bike. The first thing you’ll notice, besides its sharp new angular bodywork, is the way the 449cc liquid-cooled Single is positioned in the frame. It’s canted rearward for two reasons. First to exploit combustion force and second to keep the bikes reciprocating mass as centered and low as possible. You’ll also notice that the exhaust now exits from the rear of the engine. This was done in order to maximize the engine’s intake and exhaust efficiency by offering a direct path for both fuel and exhaust to flow through the engine.

The bike’s air intake system has been relocated to the front of the bike underneath the fuel tank just like on Yamaha’s YZF-line of sportbikes. A 12-hole fuel-injector shoots fuel into the 44mm Keihin throttle body attached to the front of the engine. It’s powered by a battery-less high input generator that is powered as soon as the kick start is touched.
The cylinder utilizes a bigger bore, shorter stroke format (97.0 x 60.8mm) with a higher compression ratio (12.5:1). A new 4-valve cylinder head replaces last year’s 5-valve component, and, in conjunction with the shorter piston stroke reduces the overall height of the engine. A new “tornado” exhaust system snakes trough the rear of the bike and is designed to complement the new engine’s power characteristics. The 5-speed transmission and cable-actuated wet clutch has also been updated for improved feel and shifting performance
