Your Dealer is so full of $hit, you should reward him with an exlax laced thank-you cake
Both the WR and the YZ are Race bikes, always have been always will be. I and many others here have been successfully racing WR's for years...Your on the right track fo what you want to do.
Where do these idiot dealers come from. The level of stupidity is sometimes astounding. This is not a crack on the knowledgeable dealers/riders that are well known here on TT.
Good Luck Dude...You can always get your straight answers here then go to the dealership and tell them what you want.

I agree with Kaze and the rest of you. But If I were to just moto I'de get a 2-stroke. The WR is totally a race bike, just more versitle to do most types of riding/racing than the YZF.

If my intention was to race strictly moto and no offroad, I would buy the YZ. In any other scenario, the WR is a better all-around bike.
All the important stuff is the same. Kevin is right, the rider makes all the difference.

'Kaze is right. Your dealer is smoking dope.
PS: how are you gonna feel after spending $6500 on the new ride when three guys on slightly modified WR's smoke you into the weeds? How do you 'splain that one to the wife?

To me it would be like a $6500 mod to my bike
Oh and my bike is ridden 99.99999% on the track. The Dub-R is more versatile. And just as fast with the same rider.
