Has anyone rode both of these? It seems the new WR's are more YZ-ish than ever, and I'm wondering if my next bike will have 4 gears or 5... I'm still leaning towards the YZ (weight) but I'm open to opinions.

Any opinion would be invalid without knowing what kind of riding you plan on doing.

I ride mostly trails/some track, and I'm fairly experienced (been riding for 18 years). My current bike is an 00 YZ 426 with the 450 cam, TA pipe w/sparky, lowered gearing, and the usual trail accountrements (handguards, rad braces, etc.)
