With the release of what is thought to be one of Yamaha’s most important bikes to date, the 2019 WR450F, we take a look at a very special one. Josh Green has been racing with the Active8 Yamaha team for 8 years now, so it’s safe to say he knows his way around a WR, and his team know how to set-up a bike specifically to suit his riding style. So without further ado, let’s take a look at how the Active8 Yamaha team have made, what is already an awesome bike straight out of the box, and fine-tuned it to Greeny’s style…
