How do WRF's compare to YZF's?

Does a WRF require the same amount or frequency of maintenance as a YZF?
Can a 6'3" 210 person have fun (not race) on a MX track with a WRF 426?
Do all WRF's have a spark arrester?

The WR's are very reliable and it's the same engine in the WR and YZ so maintenance should be the same. All the WR's come with the SA.

Other than the fact the XR does not have the "instant on" that you will find with the Yamahas I would also consider the following: 1) do you need the lights? Personally I like having them. You never now when you will be coming out from a ride a night. 2) The WR has different gearing (5 speed WR vs. 4 speed YZ) than the YZ trails or track?? 3) the suspension on the WR is softer than the YZ...again trails or track. 4) Of course then there is the magic button (AKA e start) and weight. I think either bike will do both things but if you ride trail more I would lean towards the WR..Just mt 2 cents.
Your number 2 is almost correct. Only the YZ450's have a 4 speed, all other YZ's have 5 speeds including the YZ426
Number 4, again only the WR450 and the 03' and up 250's have electric start.

I tried a lot of other bikes, 4 and 2 strokes. But having the possibility to use the bike on the road and use the performance on the track makes my WR my only choice. But a YZ will be better on a the track if you are a really, REALLY hot mx rider. For a lot of us, the wr stands up to the pack with the usual weight loss program.
Anyway, YZF or WR you learn to love it
