The Yamaha specs for an 08' WR450 vs. a '07 Wr450 shows the '08 to be two pounds heavier. Is this true or was the weight figured differently. Its labeled as DRY WEIGHT. :thumbsup:

Its most likely in the gas tank plastic. The '08's got a thicker plastic to prevent hydrocarbon emissions through "permeation"

The things this industry does to appease the greenies :thumbsup:
