:banghead: I was thinking of getting my son a wr250 but he doesn't like how tall they are and he wants a bike with electric start and green stickered. He's 17, about 150 lbs, and been riding for years latest bike an old 83 XL250R.

How do the TTRs hold up? Should I look at the 230 or the 250?

In 2005, the WR's got lowered a bit. There isn't that much difference in a WR 250 and a TTR 250 as far a height. However, there is a ton of difference as far as bike.

Unless money is the issue, he will be grateful much longer with the WR. The suspension on the TTR will not handle the aggressive riding that he will be doing in short order after he gets his new bike.

Sorry..... I should have mentioned I'm looking to buy used and as I said it needs to be green stickered for CA.
