So, this happened yesterday.... Came home to my parents' with my new FX (I work on the road, came back for a race and to buy my new bike). Was planning on giving my dad my '13 WR 450. During break-in of my FX (on our .8 mile track on their 20 acres), my dad was riding the '13 and did the ol' swaparoo in between laps. He stopped inconspicuously, ran over to me, said 'here let's switch bikes,' pulls mine out from under me and takes off on mine.
After I sat on and started the bike , something felt and sounded way weird... I was definitely not on my '13.
I was actually sitting on my dads' new '16 WR450F.
Between those 3 bikes, this will be a perfect 'from the average (b class) set of trail riders' review. We are going to a big ride this weekend and after some hours on the bikes I will report in.
So far, LOVE the bikes. The '16 WR has throttle screw removed, opened stock exhaust
, and airbox opened up. Stock FX. Definitely different power delivery, and each suspension setup is great in their own way. (Have not played with clickers or sag
yet, both stock settings. Dad and I both sit 220/240 lbs w/o gear).
More to come!!
