Isolated failures can occur and transmissions on any dirt bike will not take reckless abuse.
Get the YZ if you like to drive slow but get there quick! The WR wide ratio gearbox is not wide enough for me I need a 6th gear!
YZ exhaust cam can be put in the WR to make the same power as a YZ.

My KTM stock suspension is awesome! KTM turns quicker and feels lighter and revs out like a YZ motor and is slightly faster. The KTM 6 speed transmission is awesome.

I have an 05 WR and my friend has an 05 YZ. I just did the jetting and airbox mod and now mine makes much more power mid and top. The power at mid and top is comparable to my friends YZ but the YZ still has more explosive power on bottom. Add a YZ cam and you will have the low end power along with E-start, more plush suspension, and 5th gear. My friend has commented many times that he wishes that he would have gotten the WR because of the kind of riding we do, all trails and cross country type stuff. Your situation may be different, choose accordingly.

You have to modify a WR to get it up to scratch, you have to modify a YZ to get it up to scratch off road.
Modifying a YZ is way cheaper than a WR. YZ's go way harder than the WR. YZ's are so much lighter than the WR.
