I'm looking at a '99 wr400, looks to be in good condition, just waiting on some more info from te owner. How are these bikes on the street, do they handle good?

I got a 06 wr450 with stock knobbies on it. Has 1900km now and it handles good enough unless there's ice... If you want it to handle good need a Supermoto Tires

What gears are you using and what is your cruising speed? Mine is an 03 wr450 and I want to use it for street and trail. thanks in advance,

My plated 1999 wr400 seems to work well in dirt and slower cruising (under 60mph) with a 14/52 set up. But will still do alright in the dirt with a 14/48 set up more suited for highway speeds.
