Dude that's a pretty wide open question. But first of all YES! Switch that quad for a bike, any bike! What kind of riding do you do? Terrain, distance, racing, trailriding? If you're just getting back into it, an '00 400 is a great way to go. They're strong and reliable. Seems like a fair # but there's lots of folks like yourself that are not very familiar with the WR, so you may be able to work the seller down. I wouldn't think $2K's out of the question. Good luck!

Looks like a decent bike. I have a 2000 WR400 and love it. I bought a 06 WR450 new and couldn't part with my 2000.....so now i have 2 :confused:

Is there such a thing as a '01 400. I found one for sale and am thinking of buying it. Is it actually a '00 model or a 426cc? Maybe the guy put the wrong year, if all 01s are truly 426.Thanks

I have a 1999 wr400 and it's a good strong bike. In 2000 they worked out most of the little bugs with the '98 '99 models. So if you're going to get a 400 the 2000 is the best to go with.

I went from a ttr250 to a wr400.... It was awesome the first time I took the bike out... I hit the trottle and was like whoa! It's really nice to be able to loft the wheel up and over obsticles without using the clutch any 'ol time you feel like it. Hey Stinger1133, I think I was talking to you or one of your buddies in the Mosier Valley 360 and trinity thread right? I've noticed the add your looking at on craigs list also. Just a word of advice. That dude has been trying to sell/trade his WR400 for over a month now... So don't hesitate to offer him a little less than he's asking. Also if you look at the kbb value for the WR400 vs. your 4 wheeler I bet the 4 wheeler is worth more... When I traded my plated 2002 ttr250 for my 1999 wr400 I asked the guy to throw in some cash to sweeten the deal. He went for it.

I took the headlight off my bike because I'm not going to use it, so I took the headlight switch and wired the grey wire up to it so I can switch back to wr timing when I want to...

Just a note in case others want to do this. You have to turn the bike when switching the CDI mapping. :prof:
