I couldn't really find any with the WR's.
Looking at the CRF's, they seem to have gearbox problems, and a very bad reputation for valve problems, although this is something that is supposed to be fixed and I have not read of any recent problems for the '06 crf bikes.
Both are great bikes, Honda build quality is absolutely top shelf. Yamaha reliability is unquestioned.
Both bikes are restricted up to the hilt, both take a bit of money to make them half decent.
I feel the Honda was the better bike (not counting reliability), but that will all change with the new '07 model.
I have '05 WR450 by the way, I couldn't look past the reliability of the Yamaha's.
If I were you, take a look at the KTM's. They are the best bike going at the moment.
