Newbie with Question
Posted October 18, 2004 - 09:42 AM
We I may as well ask the same stupid stuff that every Newbie asks:
I am about to by a 2002 426, question is Should I get a Road Reg YZ or WR, I want to use it mainly on the road in SuperMoto trim, but will be doing local MX tracks and Green Lanes..
So peeps let me Have you opinions, and if you have any mods you would like to through in, before I search and trawl through the site, that would be a bonus.
Many thanks In advance....

umm...not for the 2002 model which he is talking about.
the wr has a 5 speed. the yz a 4 speed
I'd go the WR. It's ready for the street out of the box

I have a 2002 WR426F and I can assure it only has 4 gears. I've been praying for at least one more for months. I still love the bike and woulnt' trade it for anything.
Nope.... They all have 5...
Did you buy the bike used?

""i use 2 sets of chain and sprockets for sake of different gearing""
Why 2 chains is on road/off road gear that big a difference, and you know what my next question is........rough on road gearing and Rough off road gearing please...

now i ride stock 14/50 but sometimes 13 front would do magic in those tight 2nd gear clutch enforced wet, rocky, rooty climbing
still no complains on stock
must consider that smaller rear wheel (supermotard) acts as bigger sprocket, because it spins quicker, so yes, about 40-43 rear should match it...depends on the road you ride
smaller sprocket, less instant power, but more forgiving to the engine on loger rides, but thats not the point in SM

First, I'd go with a WR.
Then, always shift using the clutch while on pavement so it won't be too hard on the transmission and the rest.
I've been taking my WR to go to work for quite a while and I also use it on tracks so I think you will like the beast.
