The YZ is lighter, harder "hit" from the engine, and stiffer suspension. A 4 speed tranny that is great for the track but a little suspect for the woods.
What are you riding now and what are you trying to get out of a new bike?

YZ more WRish.
So if you want lights ,wide ratio transmission,E-start,and more trail friendly suspention, look no further than the WR.

E-start is VERY nice when you get bogged down in the mud and keep stalling it.
I think in a head-to-head between a free-modded WR and a YZ, the winner would come down to rider ability. They're both considered competition machines. For trails, the WR is a definite advantage, and the first time you end up heading back to camp an hour after sunset you'll be glad you have a headlight.

Mine is an '04, and it is a tall bike. I didn't know it at the time, but it was taller than most. That was perfect for me cause I am 6'3". The '05 is an inch or so lower.
