Glad I went blue...

Just got back from a 2 day trip in the mountains trail riding.

Now that I have some hours on this WR450, must say I am very pleased. It motors up and over just about anything. Very comfortable ride (after and soft foam seat mod). I am amazed how well the suspension works climbing technical stair step rocky trail sections. My endurance has increased as a result of this bike.

Except for the 03 starter design issue, its been a rock solid, and easy to maintain.

We have some major issues with dual sporting these performance models here in California now adays. I sure hope that Yamaha comes out with CA emissions compliant WR models in the future.

Thanks TT guys for helping me keep the bike in tip top shape.

Love this bike!!! :thumbsup::devil:

Glad you like your bike! I love my WR450. I have no complaints as well. It just keep on charging down the trail! It loves to hill climb! :thumbsup:

Ditto on the hill climbing (or maybe that's just me.)

Mine's a 426, but gotta love it. Been rock solid so far. :thumbsup:gh1.jpg

Nice Pic John, :thumbsup: looks very tricky

Great hill climb John! That looks like it would be difficult when loose and it hasn't rained in a while. New Mexico? Maybe it never rains down there. Great pic!

I think Yamaha's done a great job with the WR. With every year model they address key issues with the bike, it might take them time to do it but it gets done. I've always love the blue bikes... :thumbsup:
