99 Wr V 06 Wr

my 99 has had different cams and a fair bit of work done and head to head its got more grunt and top end than my mates standard 05 Wr450. There is a lot of talk that the 450 has been toned down somewhat over here (australia).
i loved my 99 but becasue of a very shitty mechanic its now in a million bits and the cost of repair mite just be to harsh so it mite just be better to wash my hands and get a new one... i havn't heard that may good things about the 06, sure its strong reliable but its seems to not excite the way u would think it would. I test road one (only on the road) from the shop last week and it seems to be very user friendly and smooth but i like the raw kick in the nuts the 99 gives.
i know its a good bike and it will deliver all day every day but i am just not sure..... what u think??

While i was there i waked them about then 06 WR450 and they said they are restricted here on the throttle,timming and exhaust restrictions. when you buy it they com,e with a de-restriction kit and manual on how to get full power and if you buy a new exhaust its up and running...
still i am a little unsure... no one else got any ideas???

They have been toned down a fair bit, but run a race pipe and you will get the punch back. Either that or just get a YZ. Either way, any "enduro" bike is going to cost you money setting up. They are all choked up. If you like punch, like mike tyson punch, test ride a husaberg 550 or 650.
Where you living anyway?
