Electric start for wr confirmed for 2003 by yamaha!

10 posts in this topic

There is good news that the 2003 wr's will have electric start, found out by trail bike magazine UK. But will it have an alloy frame?

More capacity 450?

come with a set of alloy bars?

Well I am just guessing here, but I predict electric start for the wr, larger displacement, wet sump but no alloy frame. Will see for sure very soon!

It's not called a prediction if it comes right off the pages of the latest Dirt Rider Mag.....

I really hope that electric start is an option on the WR. I would much rather not carry around the extra weight, and my WR starts 1-2 kicks almost always, hot or cold, upside down or rightside up. Pretty soon all us guys that trail ride are going to be forced to ride heavy bikes, or convert motocrossers. I would have considered switching to a KTM if you could get a kickstart only 400 or 520 EXC, just because of the weight savings. I suppose a guy could buy electric, and tear it all off if he really wanted to.
