I sold my KLX300 to get a WR400.
I was happy with the KLX until I started riding with other people and soon realized how under powered it was.
Mods such as a new carby, exhuast were going to cost... But known to slap a sh!t load more power out of the bike. But the KLX was plagued by other problems such as gearbox and starting gear playing up of which had been happening with all previous klx's.
In the end I sold it and got a WR and never looked back. After near 10,000kms on my first WR I sold it, then bought a KTM, disliked it and sold it after 6months and bought another WR400.

Benny, I understand your aims, since I've tried a klx once and thought it a little anemic! Well, the wr is a fantastic bike that has an overbursting power specially on the "enduro cronos" (i don't ride championship but i tried the bike in one crono, it's amazing and far more pure breed than mine (600xr) or yours! But... an if ! My mechanician, told me that every single wr he changes oil filter, this part appears full of metal particles ! I don't think that's a sign of a healthy and reliable bike! do you?
keep riding !
