Can anyone that has had the chance to ride both give me a opinion? I have the opportunity to buy a slightly used 04 for about $2k less. Is it worth the extra to buy an '05? I race MX, vet B, and weigh about 210lb. I have had Honda's for the past 3 years, 02-04 CRF450. I bought a 04 YZF250 towards the end of last year and really liked the way the bike felt. I feel the Yamaha's fit me better, 6'1". I know the mags say the 05 CRF is the best production bike ever, but I really think I feel more comfy on a Yamaha so I am pondering buying a YZF450 to go along with the 250F.
