first, a plated wr400 will be lighter and faster than a xr600. The only advantage of the 600 is confort (softer seat). On the other side, a recent yz would be better on a track but for a 1992 I have no idea. I had a 650 before and I wouln't go back for those heavy bike. Even the 400 seems heavy compared to a recent 250.

It really Is a good decision you are making. Its the Coolest Machine Ive ever ridden.
Its An awesome bike. Lots of power, Unreal Suspension, and alot of other features like "brutish but controlled power", and Comfortable layout.
As The other guys say.. YES..
I wouldnt trade my WR for anything.

Since the purchase of a 2000 WR400f
I have not ridden my 93 xr600r.
Did not ride a 85 xr350r or 2000 ktm 380exc that where stored at my house for most of last year. Each time I would ride I would have to choose a bike, and I always took the WR400, there was no comparison.
