First off I would like to say hello, I have "stalked" these forums for a while and you all seem to be very helpful. I am getting back into riding once I get back stateside. (im in the service stationed overseas) I have owned a yz80(13 years old), cr125(16 years old), and ttr125(adult) and the ttr surprised me a lot. I weight 230 and I bought that bike to follow my daughter around on the trails, I put the bbr big bore in it with cam and carb and loved it. I was so surprised on how much fun that little bike was, even before I put in the fat boy springs. Well sense then I have sold all the bikes and got stationed overseas. I am due to return to the Washington state area at the end of February and have been considering buying a WR. I cant seem to find but a couple WR250F's for sale and a bunch of YZ250f's. I already know what you guys recommend because I have read all about it. I understand that the WR is a better trail bike, but it seems that a lot of time is spent trying to make it YZ powerful, my question is how many people are running yz250f's on the trails, what are there problems and does the lighter weight help or hurt? Thank you guy in advance, and I cant wait to ride again.
