Purchasing a new bike this weekend, have ridden 2 stroke 250. Planning on mostly trail riding, what suggestions do you guys have. YZ vs. WR?

What is the maintenance like on these? Do you have any initial setup recommendations?

For mostly trail riding the wr will be more suited to your needs. They are designed to chug along better than the yz because they have a heavier flywheel and larger tank. The gearing is also higher on the wr. Either way you can't lose.

As far as break in goes, there is a thread I started titled "proper breakin". I got a lot of good responses so that should be a good place to start. I bought the YZ even though I don't spend that much time on a track, I just think they are zippier and the resale is definatatly better too.
