I'm riding a 00 yz426... Just wondering how the newer bikes center of gravity is compared to the earlier yz's. I've always felt that it was high, but after taking my buddies 04 XR for a bit a couple of weeks ago I couldn't believe the differance! Now, I like the feeling of my YZ, but man, if it's C.O.G. was that low it would be amazing. I ride tight trails, single track so it would really help... So how do the newer bikes compare? I hear the new 06 is supposed to be lower...but how much lower are the previous years compared to the 00?
