What about the crude, put the front tire in a scale and take that measurement then do the back. I know there will be some +/- based in weight transfer but it would be interesting to see how close it might be. I did this to my WR and it came in at 297. But mine is dual sported, bigger rads, Mohard rad guards, metal skid plate, shark fin for rear rotor..... I have a lot of "bike protection" that I must have base on where I ride. Open desert but only to get to the rocky, tight single that can demolish the bike without the proper protection.
I have not. I don't have a decent scale to do so either.
The published curb weight of 273 pounds has been verified by several owners, so I am pretty confident in it.
However, the July 2103 Dirt Bike article comparing the 2003 to the 2013 lists the 2013's weight at 257 pounds (versus 262 without fuel for the 2003). I think 257 pounds is either a typo, a mix up between the bikes, they had the battery removed when they weighed it or they used Yamaha's famous "dry weight", ie no fuel, oil or coolant.
My 350 EXC came in at 267. WR has 5lbs of extra gas though so the difference came to 25lbs.
