Another YZ450f or a 2007 WR?
Posted January 21, 2007 - 10:50 PM
Would an 07' WR450 aluminum frame feel lighter than my steel frame YZ450?
I know there is a 25lb difference, but the frame and lower center of gravity would conceivably make the WR feel lighter. Am I right, has anyone ridden both bikes?
Will the WR have significantly less/more power than my 03' YZ? I usually can't be passed on my 03' and I want to keep it that way. Will the mods make it feel like the YZ? Will I still have the low end snap on the throttle? I have ridden a few different CR450x's, and would hate to drop to that level:cool:

"riding I don't feel any real difference between the YZ (06) and WR (07). I notice the difference when loading the bike and picking it up"
Hope that helps.

you could always mod the WR and it get close to a YZ for the track if it's that important - the rest of the time you'll appreciate the WR suspension / torque / gear ratio's / reserve fuel tap / electrics / and overall 'comfort'
... if that track IS that important, get a YZ - either way you're asking for a compromise if you want ONE bike to do a number of things
