Nope. The FX and WR share the same crank. Look it up.
It further appears the FX and WR crank and flywheel are the same. The YZ uses different part numbers.

 

I stand corrected.  So much for information from other sources.  If that is the case my FX definitely feels like it has a lighter flywheel than my '12 WR so I assume the new WR will feel the same.

Can anyone comment on the YZ450FX Gearing 1st to 3rd versus a 2009 CRF450X model. Will 1st to 3rd be shorter or taller than the CRF450X?

 

CRF450X - Stock is 13/51. I am running a 19" rear tire/wheel now and 13/52 sprockets. 

 

I am thinking this YZ450FX 1st to 3rd gearing should be great in the trails like the CRF450X. Little more jam though.

The new WR-FX is a pretty much a YZ minus a lighter flywheel crank for motocross. The WR needing a pipe and comp. ECU. They should be leagues better and more powerful than the older fuel injected WR's. The heavier crank and flywheel is a wanted item for off road.

Someone with money to burn. I know guys that buy a new KTM 450 FE and never ride the bike, not once. They throw it in a garage to look at.

Radiator shrouds are slightly different.
