I'm not complaining that Yamaha is going in the wrong direction with the new 450s, but I am kind of disappointed. I have never even been on a track, so I am after an offroad bike. However, I really don't want to buy a WR450 that weighs the same as my 426 does now when the YZ is so much lighter! The problem is that I want the wide ratio five speed, not a four speed! I realize that the four speed is great on a track, but not on the trails I ride. Is anyone else in this situation? P.S. I like the idea of electric start, but I really don't think I need it or want the extra weight. I have never had my 426 take more than a few kicks, and it usually is a one kick deal!
