-Tank/Seat juncture, width
-Less restrictive, tuneable exhaust
-YZ timing from factory
-Decent radiator guards
-Better engine/frame guards
-Braided front brake line
-Decent tires (739s are a joke)
-Handlebars that will not get thrown away before the first ride
-Oh, yeah, a little bit of grease wouldn't hurt either
Am I asking too much???

It would be nice to ride on the road with out revving it to the max and still have a reasonable gear for dirt use.

I love the 6th gear idea, as I'm usually looking for one more on the road too.
One other addition: riding with my buddy who has a KTM with the happy button is most annoying. When will Yamaha add electric start???

begining in first and running through all the gears, I laugh just thinking of the look on all their faces as I pass them with the front wheel high in the air.

1)IT IS TOO HEAVY (needs a stock aluminum silencer S/A and another 30 lbs off)
2)MAKE IT EASIER TO START (needs an automatic compression release)

YZ - 5 speed close ratio, 2 gallon tank, hard, skinny gripper seat, good bars
WR - 6 speed wide, skinny , low profile 3.4 gallan tank (I finally saw a Ty Davis tank in person, maybe Yamaha should just buy it) fatter, softer seat foam w/ normal cover, Cycra handguards, o-ring chain and crossbarless bars for all the Scott’s you see at off-road events.
WRE - WR w/ electric start.
And of course 5 more ponies and 15 less pounds would do wonders for what are already the best dirt bikes on the planet. They could easily charge seven or eight hundred more for the WR to pay for the lighting, tank etc. which is way less than I have spent on my YZ. If you haven’t guessed the WR described above is basically the bike I have now minus a slimmer tank and one gear.

I rode thumpers back when thumpers werent cool. TT500's, TT600's, XR's, etc...
The beautiful blue thumpers are still the most awesome thing to come down the pipeline in a longgggggg time!!
I for one am very happy with it. Yeah, it has a its flaws, but wow have they come a long way!!!
