I currently ride a 02'yz 426. I want to go with e-start and wide ratio trans. I love my yz for MX but not the best for woods. And when the engine dies during a scramble, it is a pain to get going again. So what are the problems with the WR450? I am a blue/white guy but the orange offers a lot of good things too?

No real problems with the WR450. It is a solid bike. A little on the tall side. I think that can be a down fall for shorter riders in technical terrain when putting a foot down can save you from a get off. If I was under 5'8" I would look at the Huskies with 36" seat heights.

Check out this Devol web site to order the guards. Prices are on the site.
I am very satisfied with the rad & frame guard. I do not like their brake disc and skid plate guards.
