I test rode a new 06 wr450 today at the dealer and It was stock...... totally stock had .4 hours on it.... was the first words to my mouth when I tried to pull a first gear wheelie If all the free mods are done to the bike will it be a different bike? I guess I should have jumped on the yz 450 and then made up my mind but holy cow was I disapointed. I guess reading all these posts really got me thinking these bikes were the cats meow. Now for the good parts. Going around their flat track with little bumps and a turn in it made up for the lack of power. Handles really nice lighter then I thought and wow it soaked up the bumps. I could see this bike being nice to ride in the tight woods up in the mountains. Electric start was nice and the bike felt really good. Oh well maybe I should hop on the yz and then make up my mind. any body else have this experience?
