The 2010 Yamaha YZF450F is a competition motocross bike which is posed to be raced in the 450 main class of disciplines such as motocross, supercross and arena cross. It is the first year ever that Yamaha has gone to fuel injection with any of its motocross bikes, but they didn't stop there. Along with a new frame design, improved suspension and body fairings, Yamaha reversed the cylinder head in hopes of changing the frame geometry to allow for an engine that sits as far forward as possible. With a forward sitting engine the main improvement is ergonomics and ease of handling in corners. When riding this bike, it feels much lighter than previous models, and slices through corners with the utmost ease.

The entire body of the bike was redesigned, making the YZF450F look more like its cousins, the R6 and R1 street bikes. Instead of having the intake system in the rear which has been the way of motocross bikes from the beginning, the reversed cylinder allows for a forward sitting ram air intake setup. The gas tanks and seat now fold up much like street bikes to expose the filter. The filter set up is a panel filter and K&N's YA-4510 is the perfect choice for a replacement air filter.

The YA-4510 was designed for the 2010, 2011, 2012 and 2013 Yamaha YZF450F. It's a one piece panel filter, just like the stock, but comes with an oiled cotton gauze media that gives you the performance and protection you need on every race vehicle. The cotton gauze for this filter uses the XD (extreme duty) media which provides a tighter weave for off-road applications. The motorcycle filter is washable, reusable and comes with a one year off-road limited warranty.  It is designed to improve the motorcycle's power and torque.  When changing to this filter, most will notice you can ride longer before needing to service the filter due to its depth loading ability that allows for more dirt to build up on the filter before significantly impacting air flow. If you want to treat your YZF450F like the cutting edge machine that it is, then the YA-4510 air filter is worth checking out.
