9 hours, 10 minutes to go!

My guess,

* 450cc - duh
* piggy back resevior rear brake
* streamlined, lighter swingarm
* optional electric start on yz
* no oil in frame to save weight
* hot start on bar like Dr. D.
* new plastic similar to yz250
* revised hubs to reduce weight
* revised head to save weight
* lighter airbox
* 238 lbs dry

You guys are funny. What's the big mystery? 13 pounds lighter than last year, cc's bumped up to 450, automatic compression release... no radical changes.

Five hours, 17 minutes to go!

I'm counting like I'm really gonna buy a new 03 and sell the three month old 2002 just when the suspension's breaking in. It would have to be really good. Not just the stuff discussed above. If I was crazy, I'd get an 03 WR with electric start, set it up as a dual sport, and still keep the 02 yz426. Thinkin about dirt bikes at work will dry ya nuts. Focus. Back to work.

I'm staying up tonight till midnight to check out the new 450 also even though I'm a crf guy. I find it exciting this time of year when the new bikes come out and the yam 450 is the one I am most excited to hear about the changes on it. Guess the weight issue really won't be resolved till it's weighed WITH FLUIDS by a mag or something.
