theres been a couple big threads about it in the wr450 forum. I wouldn't mind having another tire spinning but I wouldnt pay 3 times more money for my bike to get it (the 2wd WR is supposed to be close to 15 grand in the US)

kind of the yamaha has a hydraulic cystem and Christini guy uses the chain and extra counter shaft sprocket which are on the hondas, the 2-trac system is good for cornering, you can turn much tighter and faster w/o the front wheel sliding out from underneath you, there is a big article on it in "Dirt Rider" in the November issue

We are starting to work on an aftermarket frame kit for Honda's using our shaft drive system. Don't know what the cost will be yet, but it shouldn't be much more than a BBR kit.

They're supposed be handle a little better too...hills, mud, sand. AND ALL Ohlins suspension! Awesome! Of course, it was Ohlin's hydraulic drive design, so it only makes sense to use Ohlin's suspension I guess. (for the Yamaha, that is)

How do you get the image to display in a post? Usually you just use "[/img]." But it doesn't seem to work. Thx
