yz or crf 450??

i realize that ya'll browsing this forum have already decided on the yamaha, anybody got unbiased input on the choice between the two?? other than you just like blue better. if you have owned both, and chosen one over the other, id like to know why.

A buddy of mine has the CRF , I rode it and it Rocks.

The thing is its aimed more toward motocross. So if your doing motocross , it would be a great choice.

If you ride woods, you most likly will have to get the off set triple clamps (as he did) to make it handle the tights better.

The YZ rocks too. I think it can handle the woods a little better than the CRF.(both being in stock form that is)

hope that helps.

The yZ450 is a 4 speed. I dont know if the guys in the woods like that or not. you should ask this in the YZ forum. They would have great input for you.

I have ridden the CRF and an older YZ400, and based on what I could tell, and what I read in the Dirt Rider "250" shootout, the CRF should be a better woods, trail, desert bike. Smoother roll on power, broad, strong power band without out a violent hit like the YZ. That all adds up to better, less tiring, woods riding, in my book. Having said that, I don't think I'd chose either for the woods. They both have their limitations for those applications. Go WR, EX/C, or wait for the CRF-X. Just my .02.

If you're talkin' MX.......uhhh I don't know. You might want to post on the YZ Forum like the last poster suggested.
