So how much can the bottom end be dialed down on the 450FX ?
I rode a KTM350 XCF yesterday. We were in very slippery conditions. Mud on frozen ground and ice. We were riding on studs, but still. I liked how the 350 could be soft on the bottom, yet when you needed power and revved it up, it was there.
Having said all that, my WR seemed to hook up better, but that may have been my tire + studs versus what was on the 350. It could have also been the rear suspension on the 350, which seemed harsh at times.
I'm really wondering if the YZ450FX is too much for tight woods/technical riding. But I'm really loving my WR, so probably not ????
Yamaha needs to lighten these bikes up by about 10 pounds and come out with a YZ350FX and an oil injected YZ300X with a starter. I'd be all over both of those.
I've been having so much fun on my WR that I haven't ridden by FX since fall. You know life is good when...
