Thinking of Switching Over to No-Smoke!
Posted July 22, 2002 - 09:54 PM
To the chase. My current bike is a '00 YZ250, and I am looking really hard at getting a 426F for my next toy. Are the differences in the WR426 and the YZ426 tranny pretty significant? I love the power of my YZ, and the gearing, so I don't want to get the WR and feel let down. I haven't gotten the chance to test ride either model (cripes, I'm beginning to think I'm the only trail rider in Iowa), so any and all of your input is appreciated.

Either the WR or the YZ are good choices. I have ridden both and can say the both are equal to themslevs.
Depending on what you want to do with it and ride , is based on the bike you want.
I have an 00 yz426, love it cow trail it, woods and WFO it. Handles the same everytime "GREAT"
My buds 2002 wr426 is a blast and a sweet change of pace. Its easier to ride I think, not so on the pipe as the yz per say, but pulls just the same. Is better in tight woods stuff.
Just really depends on what you want.
I have no complaints on the yz, Except the seat is a pain in the hemi's

I may have to look into a replacement seat with lots of baby soft cushioning.

I don't moto, can't jump to save my life, so the WR sounds like my weapon of choice.
I will, of course, keep the 2-smoker, I mean, shoot, it's payed for!
Thanks for the replies.

It boiled down to what was available on the used market in my area, thus the YZ. A WR would have been my 1st choice at the time. No regrets though!
You're in a win/win situation. Have fun.
