WR450 gearing question

Since the fence has fallen down I thought I would walk over and say Hi!
Sorry to hear about the flywheel problem but at least you know about it and it is a cheap fix!!!
I was wondering how those of you that had them felt about the gearing? When I read they were going to the 4 gear tranny I raised a eyebrow! I wish my DRZ had 6 gears for the type of trail ridding I do.
I suppose it will be better ounce you get a few miles on the bikes and sort out the jetting for the way you ride.
Yamaha has always been on the leading edge for bike technology I am sure you will love them.

It's the YZ450F that has the 4 gear. The WR's are still 5 speeds.

I am old school and started ridding back in the late 60's.
I hear you guys complain about weight and suspension and always get a smile. My first ride was a TS-250 2 smoke Zuk. It was a real pretty with chrome fenders, steel tank, oil injection. Weighed 350 pounds, 4 inches of travel and about 23 HP. Paid $750 for it.
The bikes we have now are so darned nice I feel spoiled.
