MXA stated many times they prefer the Chuggier power of the CRF to the smoother power of the YZF.....funny how they constantly change their minds after 2-3 yrs.......no typical....another stupid magazine test opinion :thumbsup:

Probably none. In 2006 Honda updated their valve seat material which is supposed to have fixed the intake valve eating problem, which appears to be the case.

I cant believe so many people really care about these. It isnt like 99% of the riding population can ride ANY of these bikes to the limit anyway. Just go buy what you like, what you feel comfortable on, or whatever...sheesh. :thumbsup:

I hammered laps on the 07 CRF, it is a sweet bike. I rode the yami, and had more fun on it, felt more hooked up, and clocked better lap times. I bought the yami!
