The 400 has a shorter stroke perhaps allowing it to rev a little faster Anyway, the 99' is an awesome bike even by todays standards. However I do appreciate the auto decomp and e-start on the 450
I think Honda has a ways to go in fine tuning the CRF-X into a comparable woods bike

I have never had the bowl off my carb for jetting alterations or for any reason, the issues i have had have been spark plug , a new iridium plug over a year ago fixed that.
the weak small end in the conrod issue, i believe i may have made worse through lugging the motor by the way of excessive wheelies, having learnt recently that these prefer to rev than lug.
other than that, the WR is a brilliant peice of marketing, matching a product to the market and one that honda can only try and match.
