Question 4 Chris in Mohave YZ vs Cr
Posted July 28, 2000 - 12:10 PM
I'm real close to selling my 426 to get a new CR. I only ride mx, so I can care less about the off road asspects. Do you think the Cr would be a wise choice over the 426. This was my first 4 stroke, and although I think the bike is great, I have this feeling the the 2 stroke is still the way to go for MX.

I could not now ride my CR where I do ride my WR. I am happy with my Thumper.
99 WR, all YZ mods, de-octopused, OEM YZ tank and IMS seat, jetting by Clark, got forked by Pro Action, WAITING IMPATIENTLY FOR MOAB!!

I have never even been on a legitimate MX track but I too would think I would be faster on premix due to light weight.
But all the tests I have read the riders usually went faster on YZF unless they were expert/pro and also didn't get as tired.
So faster and not as tired on heavier bike. Doesn't make much sense, does it?
BTW, why the CR and not a premix YZ? Seems it'd be easier to make transition since frame geometry/ergos are same...

It's kinda hard to type with a proper German - think Kolonel Klink - accent.

cr-250 y2k. It was surprisingly easier to ride than I thought it would be. My buddy and I switched back and forth throughout the day and noticed the WEIGHT difference only when jumping. The ergos on the cr were a little better, easier to transition front to back. The Wr was better where the power was concerned, more controlable. The thing I noticed on the cr though was the 2-stroke
vibration in my hands. That seemed to fatigue my hands where on the wr, the the sheer weight tended to wear on me. But, I really am splitting hairs here, because I am used to my wr . They are both great pics!
