Now that Yamaha's come out on their web site claiming 245 pounds for the WR450, I wonder if they can really do it. Even if they are within five pounds, that would be fantastic. I would normally dismiss it because all the manufacuers claim at lest ten pounds less than they really weigh, BUT, Yamaha and Honda were both within a few pounds on what they were claiming on the YZ450 an CRF450. so that is something to think about. I'am glad it turned cold and snowie in Utah, cause now I think I can make it until my WR450 comes in.
