i gotta say

Recommended Posts

i just picked up a 13 wr450 that is plated.in illinois,that is a unicorn..last year i had a 15 ktm exc 500 that i rode all summer.well,after putting a few hrs on the wr i gotta say it ,to me feels like a better bike.the ktm had a noisy engine and notchy suspension feel.the ktm motor was kinda like a light switch.the wr just really fits me!the power is way more linear and the engine sounds like a sewing machine.maybe because i rode jap bikes for 25 yrs previous to the ktm,but within the first 15 minutes on the wr,i felt at home.im sure the ktm is a good quality bike,however i just dont see the justification in the price.my wr has 16 hrs on it,came with the gytr tuner,pipe insert,billet rack,extra oil filters ,etc..all for the low,low price of 5700!...lol...i just can not understand my the jap oem's dont send wr style bikes over here ready for plates?...anyway,just wanted to share my experience...oh,the only grip i see with the wr is there is no fan on the radiator,any cure for that?
