I now have a 00 WR 400 and love the power but hate when you are in a tight place trying to kick start! I have a deposit already in a 03 WR 450 but my dealer has a 03 WR 250 that he claims, has almost the same power as my old bike and much lighter than the 450. I'm 205 lbs.6'1 W/O gear,intermediate rider, don't ride in the desert wide open, mostly tight trails, for those in So Cal. Lake Arrowhead, Miller Canyon and some Gorman. Has anybody compared this two bikes?
