Looks awesome hope its as reliable as my old drz400e was.
The dealer I'm gettting it from says hes had no returns or problems with woodruff key AFTER they've retorqued.
Some flywheels have actually been loose when the've checked them.
gotta change my sig now

I would still buy the bike, some have flywheel problems some don't.

Happy to hear that.
But the new ones are already done by yamaha from the factory now so hopefully this may be the end of the issue.

After riding out at the Trask today I have to say this IS an awesome bike and it's about ten times better in every way than my 400 was. Go get that SOB. You must be buying it from Cycle Sports? They seem like a good dealer, except their rediculous freight an setup fee. Bought a 98 KLX 300 there.

I have the same doubts, mine is comming half may,
Yamaha Holland say's there was a problem but it is fix (change off woodruff key). First i have problems believing it's just the key (it's there for positioning not adding strength) second why are the holding bikes at the dealers (the do over here in holland right now)?
If Yamaha was open about this problem i could easily live with it (just get it fixed then) but since they are not open about it it makes me wonder.
I'm worried about a new bike that i don't even have right now, this was just the reason i wanted a new bike no worries!!
Hate this feeling, i'm thinking of the options i have (made a down payment already) none makes me realy happy!?

I have no problems with my WR. I have had it in the woods, and the MX track, little heavy for MX but thats not what it was made for. I only have about 200 miles on mine so far.

You say your buddies have CRF's. Have you got to ride them, what do you think of the CRF compared to the WR??
