my friend just bought a 2005 crf and all he talkes about is how much power it has. we go to the dunes all the time and we really love to race each other, and I really hate loosing to him just as much as he hates loosing to me. In september i'm thinking about getting a 450 and i want the yzf. My question is will the yzf stock vs. stock beat the crf. are skill level is the same.
