Try to rejet your bike with an AL frame blocking the carb.
FEEL the vibration coming up through the ULTRA Rigid aluminum while you are on rocky ground.
Get 25 miles from the truck, and then turn back around and get home before you run out of gas.
Catch the tip of your boot on a root with the new lower stance.


Look guys, i understand that they are ALSO improving a lot of things...the suspension for instance, is always being improved...but i just dont see the benefit in some of the other so called advances.

and no....no drz's for me.

If we were opposed to every change that was made to the off road bikes we would still be riding XR's and 650 Husaberg's and Husqvarnas.

What's not to like about a 650 Berg except maybe it price? 239 lbs with a happy button and lights, 59 hp, premium suspenders, components and now warrenty!Hmmmm. Come to think of it.....%@*! the 2007 WR! he he. :ride:

Around here the KTM's are only about 10% more expensive. (and 50% better :ride: ).

Yeah...I read that in the KTM owners club newsletter too! :ride:
But the poster is right about the price difference to a WR there. Here a couple hundred bucks...there almost a couple thousand. KTM Canada must be smoking crack...or perhaps their customers for paying $10 k + for an orange dirt bike! :ride:

Some people really don't deal with change well. You and my Gramps would get along great. I'll apologize in advance for the flame, but I think your post warrants some retaliation.


Too rigid of a frame? Give me a break. Ride a Honda 450R on a track or an X on the trails, you won't be complaining. I agree with adjusting the carb, that's part of why I'm in favor of EFI. That would have pushed me into buying a new WR.

I agree the gas tank is small, but it's good for close to 100 miles, not 25. Not all of us want an Exxon Valdez motorcycle with a 6 gallon tank. To each their own. I personally would take the better ergos of a small tank.

Catch your boot tip because of the lower stance? Wow you're really reaching now.

The no DRZ's comment was about the only intelligent part of your post. :ride:

I get the jetting part. I rode and raced 2-stroke quads for years and getting to the carb was a bitch to say the least. If you are wanting to ride something that is going to require maintainance constantly on the carb, get a 2-stroke or just leave the carb alone. Mine is not perfect all the time but here where I live I've had the stock needle, 48 pilot and 170 main basically since I got it and I can handle it not being perfect all the time. I got the bike to ride. I agree about the gas tank. You'd think since its an off-road bike it would hold enough gas to go more than 40 - 50 miles. Fortunately where I live, 50 miles of riding and I'm dead plus I'm never really that far from the truck. I'd imagine that in the desert 25 miles out isn't that far. 25 miles here and your in another town.

I'm glad you can get 100 miles. Mabey at idle. 50 is the best I have EVER gotten on a tank.

25 miles away from the truck and turning back is 50 miles. math.
nobody here is getting 100 miles out of a tank, even the bigger older ones.
Ive caught my boot tip even with a taller 2004.
ive ridden the crf450x and i think it feels like shit.

what is going on around here?? are we not allowed to have personal opinions anymore??

I just personally do NOT like the direction that the offroad bikes are going...its just an opinion....dont attack my INTELLIGENCE....

I do have a bigger tank than 2.1 gallons, but you only get 50 miles? Somethings not right unless you have that thing pinned the whole time.

I have an IMS 3.3 gallon and I can get 100 miles out of it.

jesus man, stay with me please.

I GET MORE THAN 50 MILES because I DONT HAVE A NEW TINY TANK YAMAHA.

They did it because all the magazines bitched and whined about how big the tank was on the '03/'04. I routinely get over 100 miles on my '03 with an IMS tank. I run a YZ tank on my '04 (1.85 gal) get right at 50 miles from it but it's dry! The point is that there are plenty of good aftermarket tanks for the '06 YZ and I'm sure there will for the '07 WR as well. If it's like the '06 YZ the frame geometry and handling will potentially be light years ahead of the '06 WR though we won't know for sure until someone gets to throw a leg over it. No one bike fits everyones needs. If you don't want an aluminum frame then go buy a Husky or a KTM. Personally having ridden an '06 YZ I'm really looking forward to the new WR.

you just have to look at the sales difference between the WR's and YZ's to realise that they have to change to Aluminum frame or get left behind. They are selling a lot more YZ's because everyone waiting for new WR.

the '03 is practically the exact same bike as the '06. That is 4 years being stale. It was a good bike in '03, but time to move on.

All the oldies can buy all the second hand steel frames, so by judging all of the people here, the resale value of my bike just went up!

Hey I'm an old guy and I want the aluminum frame! Contrary to legend aluminum framed bikes are not appreciably lighter than their steel counterparts but more importantly the use of aluminum allows for a design which carries the weight much lower on the bike. We'll have to wait until later in the year to see if Yamaha got it right on the first go or if it will take some refinement. One thing is for sure you will never see another steel framed YZ or WR.

The '05YZ's were perfect, the '06YZF's were perfect, why not '07 WR's?

I already laid down cash deposit on a new one!
