I currently own a 2007 Aluminum frame WR450. Love the bike and reliability. This bike is for my son. I would go with a 2007 WR250, but there holding their value way above my price range. Not sure to go with steel frame WR or find a 06 to 07 250x that's resolved the valve issues. Don't know to much about kawi or Suzuki in that price range. Also I can find 07 250r and yz250 all over for around 3k, but the trail bikes get premium dollar here. What's your thoughts on these and maybe changing the gearing, etc for a better trail bike. Lights don't matter to me.
