I am wondering if I want to get rid of my yz426 and get a Wr426. Or if someone would want to trade plus some money because the wr has better resale. Or!!!! Should I stay with my yz? I love my 426, you can't beat the reliability. But I am starting to ride a lot of desert and Baja. My bike is great for desert and the trails in mexico, but 1. I want a light, and 2. I can't stand how it vibrates at about 80-85mph on the highways. I am geared at 15/44. All the guys I ride with are on xr650's and those things are like cadillacs on the highway down there. Is the 5th gear on the WR that much nicer for the highway? Any help would be great. Should I keep mine and do a light set up on it or try to find a WR? I would like to stay with a 426 though.

I wouldn't trade the my 426 for a '03 or '04 Wr450 for the world! The '05's I might consider.

I don't know the number but 450 is lighter than 426.

Even with a battery and a starter? Are you positive?
