I only thing I am interested in is a loss of 10-15lbs. I don't need any more hp and I love the handling and suspension. If I get a new Yamaha, it is because it has dropped some weight.

When Doug Henry raced the first 400f all the mechanics messed around with the perfect Bore, it turned out that with that engine set up 426 CC's was the perfect number, if you just bore out the bike your not realy doing much, unles a 2003 450F (which I think isn't official yet) is 10 or 15 pounds lighter, I will keep my 2002.

The Only Way I will get a new 03if its a 450 If is it has a honda/ktm style powerband, dont get me wrong I love my 426 better than the CRF but i dont need any more power at all. I have ridden the CRF450 and I loved it but in my opinion It felt like I had to ride the bike a little harder into the corners than my 426. Both bikes Are great. I love the 426 and its paid for so I will keep it. ( Any of you heard the Rumors about the new KTM 450??? sounds like the test that Dirtbike did on the ktm 400 with a 450 bigbore kite sounded awesome.)
