I voted controls only because of the stiff thumb throttle on the YFZ's. I am very interested to see how the YFZ 450r's thumb throttle is.

I said swing arm, they really need to address the cracking issues with them.

they upgraded the 09 yfz throttle level and spring tension too, its supposed to be very close to the R,
so the problems seems to be solved already...

I voted for airbox design..
the stock airbox seems too restrictive, hence the need for an FCI or Ron woods intake
it would be nice to be able to work with the stocker

I wonder then if the 09' parts are inter changable with earlier models?

yea, you can get an 09 throttle assembly and put it on your quad, just make sure its not from the R, im not sure if anything is different with the FI.

go to a dealer and try a 09 yfz, or the raptor, they both got the new thumb, just to make sure before buying one.

My vote is airbox. Don't know whether it would ever happen since with regulations they have to cork these damn things so much as it is!

Honda throttles are an easy swap, and alot lighter than the stocker as well.
