YZ vs WR, which one?

Great website. I’m ready to swap out my old CR for a 4 stroke Yamaha and figured I’d bounce my thoughts off this knowledgeable group. I do mostly trail/hillclimbs, and some MX riding. The question is YZ or WR? I don’t plan on track riding, but I do want the MX power. I may add a light kit and a kickstand if I went with the YZ. I read what everyone does to the WR to try to get the power of the YZ and figure for my purposes, it might be better to start with the YZ. I don’t plan on making either bike street legal. Opinions? The last question, is newer better? Is there any particulars to this bike when buying used? Thanks for any/all advice.

I would recomend an o1 WR426. I do little track riding, but when I do it has the power to clear decent size doubles with no problem and thats WR timed. The WR timing is great for trail riding as well. You'll love the low end grunt.

One thing I didn't note on my original post, I'm buying this bike used, so any model year preferences/differences would be helpful. Thanks!
