How does a WR400 compare to a CR125?

I found a 2000 for sale, the guy wants $1500 for it. Does any one have any input, good or bad about this bike?

How would it fit me? I am 5'3 and I weigh 125lbs. Too tall (way out there) would I be able to handle the power?

Thanks! :thumbsup:

No problems to handle it.
It's not a matter of weight, you should work with the bike, not against it.
Just get used to it and it will go your way.

WR400 = Big-time Muscle car
CR125= Japanese "sporty" car (NOT the tricked out tuurbo, NOS, drifting type----stock)

WR400- GOBS of power that can get away from you quick if you don;t respect it. Well planted. Heavy

CR125-not nearly as much power. Have to keep it higher in the revs to make good use of the small dispalcement. lightweight. nimble.

at 1500, I'd check into it to make sure it's mechanically sound. The going rate is 500-700 more for a well maintained WR400 particularly if it is, or can be, plated.

I just payed $1400 for a low hour 2001 wr 426 that didn't even have any of the free mods done. Had new chain and sprockets, pro taper bars, yz tank and seat, new fork seals, and all the stock parts with it, so I would say $1500 dollars is an ok, but not a great deal.

The 400 is bigger and heavier than the CR125, my '00 WR400 weighs in at 268# wet. I am 5'10", 180#, 32" inseam. I cannot put both feet on the ground sitting on my 400. I would try the bike out and see if it is too tall for you.
