If the info at the Canada Yamaha site holds true, the 2011 WR450F gets BNG. Again.

On the one hand I'm bummed because yamaha seems to be playing the "XR" card with the WR line (I.E. pumping out the same stuff, year after year, with BNG's).

On the other hand the WR I own is set up perfectly for me and I have better things to spend my money on.

I tend to look at the bright side.
The aftermarket stuff for 07-10 models will continue to thrive and be plentiful.
Big Blue is less of a offender of this, but Husky makes wild swings with there line up every year and it causes limited access to aftermarket/oem goodness.

Just saying.

The only thing I could ask for from a new WR is F.I. hell they don't even need to change the rest of the engine configuration and I'd still be happy with it.

Agreed. I have an 05 and I'm smiling from ear to ear when I'm riding it. When it wears out, I'll upgrade.

Well right now the new YZ is so unrideable offroad that all the Yamaha offroad racers are on WR450's or YZ250 smokers. We should start seeing even more good aftermarket stuff with this trend :thumbsup:
So maybe some bugs have to be worked out before this new motor config is fine tuned. Getting a decent sized gas tank in there is going to be an issue as well....

My '07 is working like a fine Swis.... uughh Japanese watch, and I am hoping they get the YZ's power delivery figured out before it shows up on the WR's anyway. They need to get a bigger tank or an aftermartket one that retrofits all of the EFI stuff onto it. It would be nice if there was a 3 position switch on the handle bar to choose between different maps, IE: mud , max power and somewhere in between or custom and they need to get past the current ugly plastics that are on the YZ's IMHO. Still a good bike that isn't really getting left behind yet! WR Dave

Power delivery is too abrupt for offroad hence all the offroaders racing WR's this year.

LOL! That's what I want! A bike you don't have to touch!!!

Shit man, I spent so much money on my bike giving it brass balls, a bike with power from factory would be sweet.

Too unruly for you? Flywheel weight and efi map tuning should do the trick.

I've ridden '10 YZ450's, I didn't think that they were that bad?

Well I have no personal experience with the 10 YZ only hearsay and rumor is they've been having problems calming the YZ's power delivery. But I do ride alot of tight woods so I like lots of power but smooth. I have YZ cams, high compression piston and a YZ exhaust on my bike. Lot's of power but smooth.
For example I owned a 02 CRF450 before and that thing had brutal power delivery for tight woods.
Was great in the desert or MX track but didn't suit me in the woods.

I actually prefer the 250f in the tight stuff. So much easier to keep the thing tapped!
Same goes with 250 2t's. Thats why GNCC racers still use them!
I shouldn't have sold my yz250wr. That thing was the best.....
