WR vs YZ426 again sorry!
Posted November 01, 2001 - 05:40 PM
Is the wr426 a lot slower than the yz426? Is the weight a big difference? Could they keep up with or at least close to staying up with a 250 2 stroke?

The WR is slightly heaver than the YZ.....The YZ win's in the low end with more bottom end torque...The WR wins in the top end with the taller transmission. The 250 doesn't compare to either.. since there is a 176 CC power difference.
You want the WR if your going to woods ride or enduro.
You want the YZ if your going to track race.
You want the 250 if your scared of the 426 power.
End of conversation.....

Definitely famaliarize yourself with the search capability of this site and do some digging on your own first (I know it takes a lot of time).

I switch off with my friends WR400 all the time and love riding it, but all that power isn't as much fun as riding my WR250. The 250 is much easier to ride in my opinion. And there is plenty of power on tap..

Come on Yama...Scared of the 426...?[/QUOTE]
Hey Ben, I'm there with ya on that.
WR is definitely the right flavor.
And 250F is just the right size.
But, the original poster was asking about 250 class machines (i.e., 426F and 250 2 stroke).
Oh well.. (sigh)... maybe someday I'll be able to take the training wheels off of my lil' 250F and maybe then the big kids will let me play with them. My mommie is calling me...

The WR is simply a better "all around machine" where the YZ excels in Motocross. Taek your pick , either rips, but if you buy the YZ, don't tell us we didn't tell you so about the tranny!!! They are two bikes foir two purposes-- WR--all you can eat, YZ--East some smooth MX tracks!

And yes....N_Felt was referring to a 2 smoke 250 so this WR250 comment doesn't really apply. JMO
