Ever wonder what a WR400 will do in the 1/4 mile? How does 13.061 @ 101.165mph sound. Not bad for a 400cc dirt bike huh?

This was with a 98 WR400, YZ timed, W/B pipe, 15/46 gearing, street tire on the rear. With a knobby and a lot of spinning problems the bike was running high 13 second runs @ 95 mph.

Also rode a 2000 XR650R the same day. Best run was 12.977 @ 100.514. This was on a knobby! The bike is stock except for FMF full pipe and 3 tooth smaller rear sprocket.

Just thought you might like to know what your bike is capable of running.

My '99 WR/YZ400 is street legal. I only have it street legal so that I can connect mountain trails but last week I rode it to work (only 2.7 miles) one day just for the hell of it and I beat a Mustang GT from the light up to about 65 mph when I shut off! I could just imagine what the CRF would do, it's seriously quicker than the YZF.

85 cr 500, street tires, wide ratio trans, taller gearing, 12.91 @ 101mph, ran out of gearing at 2/3 down the track, and I was sitting upright to fight the high speed wobble. I only raced it once, was hard to keep the frt end down on starts and the shake was very bad on decel at the end, very unstable. Mike

Just incase anyone was wondering my klx 250 can do the quarter mile at in around 90 seconds. but hey that would still be slightly faster than a standard vw van.

It would be interesting to run the CR500 against the XR650R. I think the CR would have potential to be quicker then the XR because of the lighter weight and similar horsepower.

The XR and my WR were both very stable, I was riding with my left arm behind the back and full tuck on both bikes.

Both bikes were short of gearing I think, they both felt topped out at about 2/3 track. They were running about 84mph at the 1/8 mile mark.

I rode an XR650 (stock but derestricted) with 15/41 gearing. I wound her on and it topped 160 km/h (100 mph) and was still accelerating!! :D :)

No one took the bait, but I will.
The CRF450 in my opinion is faster off the line, I have drag raced my buddy numerous time from a dead stop, his bike will pull my 2000 WR, it is faster of the line, but not up top. My buddy is a nearly retarded novice and can make that thing go, your buddy must not know how to ride that thing at all.
Its got more HP and weighs considerable less you do the math.
