Before I ask my question, let it be known that I'm not downing the WR or the people that own it... I have an 04 YZ450F that I use only for woods/trails,,,no track time on this bike. I've recently been thinking of buying an 07 and have researched the WR450. I cant understand why you would buy a WR over the YZ. Its $200-$300 more than the YZ and every person that buys a WR spends hours and more money making it run like a YZF. After all the modifications, the only difference I see is a headlight and E starter (most take the E-start off if using the bike for racing purposes from what I've read). And if noise is the reason,,,why not just spend $200 and buy a FMFQ (or similar product). Like I said earlier, not tryin to be an a$$. I just cant understand the benefit of a WR. Then again, I've never been on a WR so maybe its just a total different bike than the YZ,,,but from the looks and specs, I really doubt it.
