alright so i had a 07 yz450f and i ended up breaking up with my ex and she took it. anyways...im looking into more of the desert bikes i have run into riding in the dark on accident with no light too many times. but i like the power of the yz are the wr's close to the same amount of power? does anybody have any experience with the 09's? i rode a friend of mines 07 crf450x and i liked it but iv always been a yamaha guy are the yamahas still the way to go? iv never had a honda...just looking for some good advice and incentive, im thinking i might get a good deal with the holday weekend...i can hope atleast. thanks guys.

rmz450f EFI, great handling, smooth and stable. WR is heavy, CRF is messed up.

You can't go wrong with a yamaha. You've got to do alot of crap to a WR before it'll run like its supposed to. All the info needed is in this forum.

You specifically asked for a desert bike that has lights. An RM-Z 450 is an MX bike with no lights :ride:

There are aftermarket lighting kits that would fit either bike. You could go the ala carte method and check eBay for everything you need to save a few dollars, but it is time consuming.

Curious as to how you let your ex take your bike from you...
