Two words. Green Sticker. Here in communist run Kalifornia they only let us run Green Sticker bikes at certain areas at certain times of the year. Before any of you start to go off on how F'ed my state is don't worry the sick bastards that run things here are bleeding over to the other 49. Look at the EPA emission approved bikes for the other states are now the same as the one Kalifornia mandated. Scary, but even more scary if you don't think this crap can happen in your area. Oh yea, also when I get stuck in some nasty ruts, or a steep hill and stall it I just hit that magic button! If your worried about the weight of the bike shed a few pounds and pump up Arrranaalld! : :

if you gear a yz low enough for off road then your top speed is pathetic. if you gear it for speed your first is way too tall!!!!
we need a yz450f with a wide ratio 6 speed. if there was such a thin i could live with out the starter and lighting!!!!!

From what I have read I think a well modded Wr would pull the same HP as the YZ and not be much heavier, if you like you can remove the starter motor to save weight, How much weight diff is between the two in stock form? I read my WRis 249 pounds.

Ever been on a rocky hill climb, 3/4 of the way up, and you lay the bike down on the right side? What about that nasty getoff where you and bike end up in two different places, your bike leaned over with gas dripping out of the float bowl. So you are standing there, out of breath, beat up, tired, etc... and you need to get your bike started again.
That "button" is worth its weight in gold at that moment. Yes, it weighs in at the same weight as a chunk of gold, but it is worth it.
BTW... with the mods, the wr is rippin, screamin, adrenaline pumpin, eye watering animal. Its more than fast enough!
