We recently joined forces with Dirt Bike Magazine for a special project build with long-time test rider Pete “Grandpa” Murray. Starting with a stock 2018 Yamaha YZ450F there was a lot of room to play around, both from the aesthetics side as well as the performance side. Check out this sneak peak at the finished build that will be featured in the July 2018 issue of Dirt Bike Magazine!
Dubach Racing Development engine relocation kit to move the engine forward and improve front-end traction
Some extra tacky Defy MX grips from Torc1
Our very own set of custom Dubya USA wheels featuring silver Talon billet hubs laced to DID Dirt Star rims with black stainless steel spokes and silver nipples. Talon sprockets, a Regina chain and an IRC M5B completed the drivetrain mods. We also threw on a blue Dubya Bling Kit for good measure!
Bumped up the height a bit with a new seat from GYTR
Lowered the bars with a new clamp from Ride Engineering
Added a Dubach Racing Development complete stainless and aluminum system to save weight and improve performance
With all that added performance we needed some serious braking power from Galfer USA
