wr450 weight

10 posts in this topic

Can anyone please tell me the real weight of the 2004 wr450? The specs say 234# but that seems really light compared to the 450X.

Thanks

'04 and '03 will be the same. noboby knows where they come up with the numbers they put in the fliers. even the '03 owner's manual has the "basic weight" (oil and full fuel tank ) listed as 269lbs.

Not sure of the real weight, but the "perceived" weight is as follows.

25 mph and up.... light as a feather

10-25 mph... not heavy at all

1-10 mph... getting a little heavy

0 mph... really heavy

-5 mph (as in sliding backwards down a loose hill after getting stuck) ... the bike weighs a friggin ton!

So, keep it moving and keep the rubber side down is the best way to reduce the weight.

That's the BEST friggin' answer!!!!!!!! Unfortunately mine always seems really heavy or weighing a ton!

I love the -5mph one, also any sideways movement such as tipping over at a stop while on an incline sidweways, bike feels VERY heavy
