Forgive me father for I have sinned!! I really could use some input here. Here's the problem I'm facing. I am going to buy a 03 450. I had the 02 CRF 450 and sold it for a 02 KTM 520. I had issues with the Honda because it felt cramped to me but I felt very confident on it. I am not an aggressive rider but I felt like I could push myself more on the CR than on my 2000 KX 250. Anyway, I sold the CR for the KTM thinking that because it was thinner and somewhat taller I would like it better. That was a mistake, because I never felt confident on the Katoom. I rode (just a few times) my buddies 01 YZ 426 and loved it but did not want the starting problems or added weight. Now, Yamaha has addressed those issues and has what will for sure be the bike everyone else is chasing. So now that I have stumbled through all of that, this is what I'm wondering. Can you guys that have experience with the Yamahas give me some insight to help me choose between the YZ and CR. I know this is a totally vague question, but I'm looking for the pro's and con's in an attempt to not make the same mistake I made with the KTM. Thanks in advance for any advice.
