i was also torn between which bike to get recently . always had 2 strokes ( yz125 )
but decided to go with the wr400 y2k ( no more premixing fuel ).
i fitted the official yamaha road kit on it so i wouldn't keep getting pulled by the old bill whilst on the road . so far i recon i made the right choice , its the dogs bits .
one drawback though it eats the standard
michelin comp 3's , recon i might try the pirelli mt21 or dunlop 606 .
do your self a favour jt go wr , you also get
real help when you need it from all the guys in the forum .

Unless your power mad the 250 is more flickable than it's larger brother. I have a 400 btw.
Something else to consider is that Honda is introducing their 4 stroke MX bike this fall. It would need a lighting kit but it should raise the bar as to what a 4 stroke dirt bike should be like. I just wish they would base an XR on it.
