I think you'll find that the power difference in the two bikes will make the dub-R feel lighter than the DR.
Some popular thought and mods:
YZ number plate
Remove odo (use YZ spacer and seal at odo drive)
Aftermarket exhaust (wait for a quite one)
97 KDX220, 86 TTR225, 99 WR400f, WR timing, throttle stop trimmed, air box lid removed, White Bros head pipe, silencer and air filter. De-octopussed. Works frame guards and Thumper Rad Guards, Scotts steering damper. Odometer and headlight removed. Moose hand and mud guards. YZ stock tank, IMS seat and number plate. Renthal Jimmy Button "highs" and Renthal Soft half waffle grips. AMA, SETRA, Happy Ramblers MXC.

How about the rear sprocket? Is the stock one steel, or aluminum?
Is the WR subframe aluminum like the YZ?

The stock rear sprocket is steel. I running an aluminum 52t now, to try the gearing and when it and the chain gives up. I'll be using the sidwinder stainless steel sprocket.
The WR subframe is steel, YZ aluminum, GYT-R titanium (appx$500).
speed is money, how fast can you afford to go

Never weighed the WR400 after the mods, but some basic mods I have performed are as follows:
- Titanium DSP Pipe and exhauist
- DSP carbon airbox + velocity stack
- Alloy sub-frame
Where I have added weight:
19" rear wheel
Anyway, good luck

Some of the itemes added all ti and aluminum fastners including the SW pivot, axels, and linkage bolts. CF skid plate, side panels, fork gards, other gards, clutch cover, mag cover engine mount brackets, seat brackets, etc. Other ti items: subframe, footpegs,---anyway can't remember all the stuff on it.
The bike bone stock with no fuel on my scales weighed 264lbs now dual sported with handgards etc. it weights 252lbs, Its you basic $10,000+ WX420.
