there arent enough bikes out there yet to see if their is any real design problems yet.
This bike is a leader in its class (By far) around the world and Yamaha will not take chances to screw up their market share
my only concern is how lean the bikes are jetted.
mine is due 10 Feb and we get the euro spec bikes so we can also compare subtle differences (pipe, no gray wire etc)
I am not in anyway concerned, all the rumours with the YZ's have come to nothing
Buy one if you dont like it you will sell it easily

That mechanic sounds like he was parrotting somebody elses bad advise. I have hundreads of hours on both my race bikes and have NEVER had a clutch problem...
Tell that mechanic that he needs to apply for a career change at the "Truckmasters Institute" The trucking industry needs all the wheel holders it can get.....
I'm starting to get the impression from "Alabama Riders " posts that he is a pot stirrer....

I have had no problems with my bike, 5000+ miles. My clutch works better than most of my friends. The WR's are good reliable bikes, IMO you can't go wrong.

I bought one of the original ATK's and it was tough to get parts. They also cost a lot more since there were not many of them out there.
I hammer my WR and have never had any clutch problems.
Just my $0.02

I love your remark "research extensively" I guess thats what lead you to buy that ATK,what a modern marvel that is.
And lets don't forget that water buffalo of an XL with the "blinkies removed". Did that require some sort of degree as well?
Once again Thanks for all your positive input.Now go back to the girly bike forum.

Some don't want to admit there is a problem.
Not true. I am more than willing to admit that there is definitely a problem here. And you are it.
