After looking at other forums they seem to have a great habit of slateing Yamaha off ??? maybe I just glaze over that sort of thing on this WR forum but i dont seem to see it on here ? Well everyone heres you chance to tell the world what you think of your great Yamaha (Or maybe not !!!) I will be honest I used to be brand loyal to Honda but after reading all the trouble with vavles etc on the CRF I decided to get a XR650R, Great bike, very well built & the finish is what I would expect from Honda but turned out to be too heavy for what i wanted a bike for, So I had no choice but to look at different makes to find the best. After going to the dirt bike show late last year I got to look closely at all the latest dirt bikes & walked out of there thinking my Yamaha WR 450 07 is still the best bike in the world. The WR has the looks, the build quality & reliablilty all combined that the other leading makes dont seem to have at this present time.
