Just want to hear opinions... We ride 25-30 kms of quite technical trails 2-3 times a week mostly after work... Technical I mean washed uphills, stony riverbeds, wet mud forest generally slow trails etc. Over the past 5-7 years most guys switched to from XRs to WRs as they seem to be the most rugged and not demanding specialist service\parts etc. There were some CRFs, still some DRZ, even some KTMs... But last 2 years the guys tried YZ450s that local motocrossers sell and upgrade every year on our trails. And it turns out for an average to advance trail rider YZ makes our usual ride easier, faster and more fun. Of course that is on the technical, nearly trial-like sections, uphills and the most difficult places to ride. When we do long weekend or overnight rides and use some gravel roads, YZs are not that fun with the vibration, lighting, side stand and quite important for local areas - water crossing issues (airbox being quite "open" and low). I thought YZ was too powerful for me - but when I once swapped it for my WR during the ride, I suddenly rode faster in a group and with less effort... Again I thought mx suspension and shorter gearing will make the ride difficuilt - but I did not feel any problems. Actually The YZ front fork worked better on stones, lugs etc. (And I rode 1 gear down from usual WR gear choice). So some of us think - if we put WR air box and side stand on a YZ, equip ourselves with helmet lights - will that make YZ funnier and enjoyable short trail rides? Or hell - just ride YZ as it is! What do you guys think?
