Learning to ride on a WR450?
Posted August 18, 2007 - 06:18 AM
HOLY S this thing scared me at first. It's still way too much for me on tight trails but I LOVE it everywhere else.
I was (and still am) a total rookie but the 450 in open areas is great for me. I really need a 250 for trails though.

The 450 takes WAY less effort to ride than the 250
I think that depends on the terrain.

They're both brilliant bikes, use the 250, (or even a 230), for Sunday afternoon trails and a WF450 for everything else

most of the threads on here are right on, ride it a few times corked up, then open her up and start having fun.

Thanks for the responses guys. I dont have any more doubts as to which bike to get. Hopefully I'll be picking up the 450 soon!
i'm faster on the 450 than my fat buddies, until I put my feet down

A WR may be in my future, I do like the way the YZ is put together.
Carefully go for displacement..life is short..

As far as the power goes, the 450 feels like a 250 when you get it stock, without the free mods done to it. I must admit, I was NOT to impressed with the bike when I first got it, because I didnt know about these free mods. They really make that big of a difference. And as far as out growing, well, thats why I went with the 450, You dont have to worry about that. Im 5"10 190 lbs. And I personally think it fits me like a glove. It may seem a little heavy if your not into shape, but, again like i said, i think it fits like a glove. You Definatly!! should go with the 450. Its Faster *if you like that sorta thing*, its an overall fantastic bike. It really is. I love mine.

I'm allot faster on a wr250 and it dosen't tire me out as much as the wr450.
Although if I only rode out in the desert, a well breathing 450 would be my bike of choice
Made the switch back to a 2 stroke for the lighter feel.
For those of you who need a big bike to think your going fast.
