Ah, the 80s were good to motocross and off-road bikers. Monoschock rear suspensions and two-stroke engines that predated environmental crackdowns, and not to mention the 500cc class that pushed riders to their limits.

Replaced by the YZ490 4-speed (notoriously hard to keep running), it seems that Yamaha went backward after the 465.
