Any one heard any rumors on a new Yamaha to compete with this madness. I love my WR but now question it.

By the way, the CRF is a great looking bike. If I was attracted to the motorcycle's looks, then I would have to take the CRF.

The guys on TT are dying to hear something OFFICIAL on the 2003 WRF/YZF.
Could you please post on the WRF400/426 and the YZF400/426 forums when Yamaha OK's Doug to disclose all the info? So many of us are waiting to hear. I think quite a few guys want to jump ship to Honda and KTM, due to the weight difference alone in their bikes... :-(
We'd all appreciate it!!

I am sorry, I do not know when Doug will be able to release any info that he
knows. He does not tell me anything...I have a big mouth...!
I am sure once it is Ok for him to say anything all the dealers will know by
then. Check with your local dealer in June. I believe this is when they
have introduce the new years bikes. Please do not take my word on this time
frame, but you could call your dealer.

I go on long rides that take you places, and those events say - No headlight...No ride! (just for safety measures in that you don't make it back to camp by dusk.)
Two different bikes in my opinion.

The WR is a RACE bike...Not a play Bike. The suspension and the Frame are the same as it's YZ cousin. You need to look at the specs for each of these machines before dismissing it.
This sure looks like a WR400 Chasing down a YZ426 on the MX track too me.....
And a WR400 and Several YZ's in a GNCC Race...They both look pretty versitile too me...

Obviously, the WR can be modified for racing the MX track. But, out of the box the CRF and YZF are both ready for action without spending any extra dough in tanks, seats, pipes, etc., not to mention performing all of the mods like YZ timing, throttle stop, etc, etc, etc...
And... as I said above, riding my buddies YZ250(Two Smoke) is like riding air with power compared to my WR. The bike is very light and easy to throw around when compared to my WR.
I also believe that it was you who stated
and that is my point regarding the WR's MX potential.
