Well, after having an 07 WR450 for almost a year, decided to bite the bullet and go back to a YZ (was missing some things too much!). Took delivery in a crate, waited for various aftermarket bits to arrive and finally got it all together and ready to ride. Think I'm pretty darned happy I went back to the YZ (except for the lack of electric boot!). A few pics from the stable

Yeah, I already have a new DID O-Ring to go on. Just waiting for a 50 tooth rear sprocket to arrive. The crap OEM will stay on for another week or so.

It could - they WR comes with a decent O-Ring chain as stock. Guess they are hell bent on the weight (as per new stock 120 rear tire to save 300grams) - so provide a basic chain with the YZ.
