Yamaha just introduced a new YFZ450R SE to its 2014 family of Special Edition sport quads. The new YFZ450R Special
Edition has all the engine, suspension and ergonomic updates of the standard 2014 YFZ450R, with a new color and graphics
treatment, in addition to the Crimson Red/Black YFZ450R SE introduced earlier this year. A new cylinder head with hotter
cams and more compression produces more, harder-hitting power. Revised suspension settings on the fully adjustable
piggyback front and rear shocks offer a smoother ride. New quick-release bodywork creates a more roomy riding position. The
Maxxis radial tires are new, too, with firmer construction for more precise steering.
The new color scheme is Black/Crimson Red, with gold graphics on the black bodywork. The price is $8999, the same as
the Crimson Red/Black SE. The base YFZ450R is $8799, and it’s available in Team Yamaha Blue/White and Blaze Orange.
Fox racing extends
its DSC (Dual-Speed
shocks to the truck, Jeep
and off-road vehicle (OHV)
product lineup. Available on 2. 5
and 3.0 Factory Series shocks, DSC
allows precise suspension tuning for more
aggressive off-roading in many conditions. Billet,
6061-T8, anodized aluminum reservoirs house blue
low-speed compression and gold high-speed compression
adjusters, and each knob alters damping by 25 percent,
allowing you to get traction on small bumps and resist
bottoming on bigger hits. The LSC knob has 10 clicks of
adjustment, while the HSC knob has 12 clicks of range, and
the large reservoir provides stable damping with extra heat-dissipating qualities.
Fox’s new DSC
system has LSC and
HSC clickers for fine-tuning the ride, and the DSC
system is available as an upgrade
on any 2. 5 Fox shock with a 7/8-
inch shaft. Upgrade your RZR XP,
Wildcat or Maverick with DSC
and FAV (Fox Air Valve)!
