Feedback on the 07 450wr
Posted February 14, 2007 - 11:16 AM
I am a seasoned experianced rider. My present off road bike is a yz 250 2 stroke. I live in the frozen north. Alberta Canada. Our off road riding rules in this provence have never been strictly enforced province wide. The rule is
you have to have a spark arrestor and lights. Some area's are getting quite
strict about this. My question to you is this. I love the power and positive handling of the yz. But I need an off road legal bike. The wr 250 is to slow for my tastes. The previous 450wr I find a bit slow in the handling but it has nice power. I am really looking at the 2007 wr 450 it feels light compared to the 06. I would like to know if it rides as good as it feels on the showroom floor.

I loved the older 250 as well. I have a 2001 yz 250 that I will keep.
After reading your answers I will be laying down cash on a wr450 to keep
it company. Thanks again

Thank God I did, that 2-stroke is a piece of crap, this thing is the best thing I have ever riden. It feels way better than the older wr's, it is not top heavy and it hill climbs like its on steroids. When riding over rocks it is very smooth and doesnt stall like the older wr's. When in the sandy river beds it feels like it is gliding over the sand while riding the 2-stroke you had to rev the crap out of it to keep on top.
Buy one you will not regret it.
