Depends on the year
2002 YZ Dry = 231 lbs
2002 WR Dry = 240 lbs
2005 YZ Dry = 222 lbs
2005 WR Dry = 249 lbs

also, the WR has coolant overflow bottle and larger tank, so the actual difference is larger than the delta of the dry weights

Most of the weight diffrence comes from that freakin electric start on the WR. I think its a waste really. I mean its a high performance dirt bike not a cadillac. My 02 426 starts fine when I kick it like a man. However when my panzy brother gets on it its a diffrent story for him.
