Absolutely! You have a great bike for the track. Is it YZ timed? Even if it is not, you will have a good time. The suspension is more than adaquate to handle the track. I use to take mine all the time even before I YZ timed it.

Get a YZ seat and tank, raise the forks a little, get some good tires, dial in the suspension - you now have a very fun and easy to ride motocross bike, WR or YZ timed !

Looks like a perfectly executed downhill jump to me. Amazingly enough, I've never seen anyone attempt such a jump backwards!!! :D :) :D

Check out the intro page to this forum! The WR can be jumped, even by heavy-duty riders!
