Should I dump my YZF for an 05 WR?

I think the next year or so we are going to see these bikes change a lot with Honda and Suzuki bringing out competetive bikes. The only thing that's really needed is a weight reduction which hopefully, will be the next big step.
You must be crazy fast on that thing. You were super fast at Moab on that WR426! I am going to ride Colorado the weekend before our Moab excursion so I will PM you
It took me about an hour or so to get comfortable really wicking the 300 up. It's got way more hit than the 426 and the power is not as broad so you need to keep on top of things a little more to really move. However, I REALLY notice the 40 lbs. weight difference. I'm not sure if I'll be a whole lot faster but I don't get as tired. Top speed is way down compared to the WR. I'd say 10 mph or so which doesn't thrill me so there are trade off's.
