WR in the Sand???

Also, I'm thinking I might go out to the track once in a while. With that in mind, should I be looking at a YZF400/426 to replace both the XR & CR instead of a WR?

The problem with the YZ will be the tall first gear (especially the 426, even taller than 400) and stiffer suspension in the woods. Either one will do fantastic in the dunes, but I don’t know how you will like turning in deep sand with that WR tank in your lap.
I’d get the WR 426, “YZ” the motor and “IMS” the tank and seat.
I drag raced a few open bikes at Glamis on my YZ 426 and actually beat one guy. I was within a bike length or so of the others initially but, even geared 14/47 a YZF can’t get way up in the 90 mph range like a KX/CR 500. But a WR probably could!
