Its Not jetted right its tunning like shit. If I remember right these bikes
are a bitch to get jetted right. You spend more time test /tuning them then
going out and enjoying a bike that runs good. There a waste of time in my
opinion due to the jetting issues. 

Author Jim Treadwell (3 months)
From what I remember in old magazine tests and shootouts the 490 was junk,
it either blubbered and fowled plugs or pinged and seized, it was
impossible to jet correctly, the previous year YZ 465 was a much more
capable and forgiving motor.

Author James C (10 months)
Had an 88 yz 490. The motor was awsome, except for the vibration. But
handled horrible. I can ride my rm 250 alot faster in the woods. Rode a
buddy of mines cr500 it handled great compared to the yz. The yz had the
motor but nothing else.

Author WaffenSS4life (2 months)
Too scared to ride it?

Author autoparts321 (4 months)
Looks Cool. How did you get everything in Black? Did you just paint it?
Powder coated or what? But why does it sound like all the screws are loose
on the motor when you rev it up? Is that the famed yz490 engine ping? I
heard there's a head mod that can be done that fixes the ping problem and
makes it more rideable. Look into it.

Further observations on the so called mystique. The fact that the
rider/owner doesn't know how to ride and always hurt themselves does not
instill mystery into the bike itself. Have you considered the far more
likely that theory that the owner is a moron? Give it some thought

You are not the only one that feels this way. When Yamaha went from the 465
(which was a great engine) to the 490, something went wrong. It seemed like
no one could get these things to run correctly. They went through reeds
like they were potato chips and jetting was always a nightmare. I
eventually sold my 1984 490 and bought a 1985 YZ250, which was a fantastic

4 strokes are a lot like tampons bud. Every Pussy has one.

Author blazeraider (2 years)
not for first time riders, Even experienced riders, if you are not familiar
with the two stroke and the power band associated with the two stroke try
the 250... now that u think about it the 250 got i bit of an attitude. ahhh
fuck it just get on and hang on. DONT let it catch you off guard b'cause
the awnrey fucker will throw you to the ground, turn around and stomp on
you. GOOD ADVICE ride it in some sloppy mud if you keep the rpm's in the
power range its not as unpredictable and its a BLAST!!
