WRR vs DR650 Drag Race!!
Posted August 31, 2008 - 07:53 AM
But the saying "When in Rome" came to mind. I picked up my WRR the same day my buddy got his DR650 and we never raced from a stand still. We swapped rides once.
Looking at the specs:
DR650: 35hp & 362lbs wet= 10.34 lbs per hp
WR250R: 25hp & 300lbs wet= 12 lbs per hp
My WRR mods are all bout adding weight lol HID kit, skid plate and handguards.
But I weigh 154lbs with full gear while my buddy weighs about 220lbs.
I think it will come down to driver cz it should be very close bike wise.
All in all it should be fun.
So you guys think I can take it?

If I was racing I'd put my shnutz on the gas gap, rev it til I felt the engine about to implode then dump the clutch and let my feet fly off the back...followed by a quick left turn into the barrier.
Seriously, I dunno, there are so many variables but please, please let us know the results! And good job taking it to a strip!!

I've come off 2 DR650's (a 91 and a 97) for an XT 250. Bought the XT over the WRR only because of my inseam and intended usage. (casual trail riding that wasn't worth spending 2,000 more for a "superior" WRR).
I test drove a WRR that was broken in that a friend has and, where I was impressed with the power it had for a 250 (much better than my XT) I know first hand there's no way it'll touch a DR in a 1/4 mile run.
Throw some whoops in that run and it will beat the DR but, never on a street.
It's not about H.P.......it's about Torque!
