You really have to make up your mind as to what's more important, racing and MX or versatility. If your at least a A-level rider and being competitive is the priority, then you should go with the YZ250F. If versatility is more important, then get the WR. The WR is heavy, and it feels that way, even if you get the weight down. I stripped 12 lbs off my '13. It still feels heavy but it is a good enough for what I'm doing, and I feel like I am as fast on it as any other bike I've owned. I'm not racing, though. I'm 165 lbs, and the suspension is perfect for me in the woods and can handle anything I'm courageous enough to try. I wish the bike was about 25 lbs lighter, though.
