I hope it stays steel. It gives a better ride and it's a lot easier to work on your bike with the small tubing.

Exactly! On the CRF you can hardly see the carb much less work on it. I supose like anything else you get used to it though.

They have already proved you can make a steel frame bike lighter than an aluminum frame bike. I don't really see a good reason to go to aluminum other than for aesthetics and marketing value.

I'd rather try the RM. No concrete reason why.

Although I think any brand new model is a risky purchase.

Removing the carb does take a little longer.

But jetting changes are 100% easier on a CRF than a YZF (except the air jets, which nobody fools w/ anyway).

Yeah but they hold their value better. And Honda 's, even though the carb is a little tougher to get to, are much easier to work on because of the way they are put together. To tear down the subframe on 426 is a real compared to CRF. Changing the oil is easier on a CRF also even though there are two reserviors to change.

When it comes time, I'll be back on a Honda. But I just couldn't walk by ths 2002 YZ426. $2800, never wrecked, brand new tires, new chain, new sprocket, new handlebars, lots of Works accessories. It's heavy but it doesn't do anything funny. Very stable bike. But it ain't red!!!

I am happy to see the new KX and RM 450's. It will only push Honda and Yamaha hard to make their bikes better. No substitute for competition. Would I buy one?? Not if Bubba is not on a green bike any longer !! LOL

NOW THERE IS A WHOLE NEW DISCUSSION!!! :)
