Yamaha WR450F: The Blue Bomber | Back End | Bike Reviews | Features

Early this year, RideADV Trail Boss Greg Yager was approached by a customer to develop a trio of Yamaha WR450Fs for him and his mates to use in a RideADV Simpson Desert Crossing ride.

Clubby was lucky enough to through a leg over the original Yamaha WR450F Blue Bomber that Yager replicated for his customer and you can get out his full ride report in ABB Issue #448 – on sale October 2. But until then, take a look at the parts list required to build such a beast!
