I remember reading an article that said the wr 450 frame is actually different than the yz in terms of rake and trail. Is that true? Also I know in either 07 or 08 the yz clutch was updated and it's pull is really light. Is this the same for the wr? How does this bike turn in tight lock to lock trails? Thanks for the answers.

I can't answer the frame geometry or clutch questions, but one of the first things I noticed on my '07 WR-450 was how "soon" it hit the steering stops.

I ended up grinding on the steering stop blocks with a Dremel until the forks started to get close to the gas tank. I like it much better this way.
