nice math and good post. I guess it's clear the CRF owns another year. I can say that because I have one. lol. They are all great bikes. These bikes are amazing and so easy to ride. I mean could you imagine riding a 2-smoke anymore... ouch, I just hurt my brain.

I'll just add that I 'WAS' a 2 stoke lifever and now after riding a few 4 strokes, picked the YZ450F as my ultimate race machine!

They all are great bikes this year. I called my buddy tonight to see if he wanted to go riding and he said he can go but has to ride his wife's CRF250 because the valves on his 05 CRF450 went 0 clearance again. This is the second time he's had to do the valves on that bike. My 03 YZ450 has had one valve that was shimmed and it's got quite a bit of hours on it. That, coupled with the fact that my wifes CRF250 can't go over a year without the valves going to 0 and burning more oil than an old Desoto is why I'll get another Yamaha.

I like what Dirt Rider said.
Put 15 lbs of air in the tires or change the clickers a click or 2 and any of these bikes could be in last place.
Thats How Good They ALL! are.
