the dr was however better at parallel parking, reversing & loading on the truck.

Seriously - one area that the DRZ is clearly a leg up on the WR - since I added the 5' of chain, my boat has never pulled it off the bottom.

I'm not slamming the DRZ. It is just better suited to trail only.
86TT225, 99WR, WR timing, throttle stop trimmed, air box lid removed, White Bros head pipe, silencer and air filter. Odometer and headlight removed. Moose hand and mud guards. YZ stock tank and IMS seat. Renthal Jimmy Button "highs" and Renthal Soft half waffle grips. AMA, SETRA.

However as I increased my practice and spent more time at high speed I found the suspension was not up to the task. I did not like the seat slope (I had to fight to stay on in the twisty stuff). I did not like the placement of the bars (to close to the rider) so there were alot of basic comfort issues with the bike.
However if you are just concerned with drag racing a stock (just the baffles removed) WR will probably be slower that a 470DRZ with pipe, cams, ignition module, different chain wheels.
I traded my DRZ for a WR because I could spend less on upgrades and have a more comfortable bike that was happier at higher speed

I answered a post that said my 470 eats wr426's...
I said my ole' husaberg just ate parts.
I thought hand to hand was going to ensue.
Birds of a feather...
