Well, I traded my DRZ400S for a WR450 ('03). I couldn't keep up to buddies CRF450. Maybe I can't on the WR450 (with a Baja Design's kit) either, but oh well. I wrote Yamaha Canada a letter with regards to assurances the my provide that the bike won't strand me in the middle of nowhere because of the "woodruff key". Maybe they will reply, maybe they won't. I was spending tons of money trying to make the DRZ into a lightweight machine. It was a great bike though and I'll always like yellow machines. My question is, what works good on the blue plastic for protection. I like a bike that looks good as well as works good. That plastic can look old fast I hear. Thanks.
