Looking to buy a new bike. Will be riding mostly fire roads and two tracks. I'm pretty new to the dirtbikes, so any advice would be greatly appreciated. Both bikes seem to be pretty equal in specs, but how are they from a maintenance point of view? Any advice? Thanks.

The WR is simply MUCH more durable than the CRF-X.

That was the single point on which I eventually made the decision to buy my YZ450 instead of the CRF450R. There were things about the Honda that I liked. But I haven't regretted the decision at all, and true to its reputation, the YZF has been a block of granite.
