Wr250r year changes ?

Recommended Posts

Was about to buy a brand new wr250r but now I found a used 2009 wr250r with 3k miles pretty much brand new for $4000.

 

From what I have reasearched online the wr250r has not changed from 2008 to current? Is this true? If not what is different?

 

 

Thanks!

Going by wikipedia

The Yamaha WR250R is a dual-sport motorcycle made by Yamaha Motor Company. It has a 250cc (15 cu in) liquid-cooled single-cylinder four-stroke DOHC engine, fed premium fuel by electronic fuel injection.[1] It has remained largely unchanged since its introduction in 2008, with most differences being cosmetic

I own both the 2008 and 2015 models.  Cosmetic changes only.  Just look closely for signs of damage, poor maintenance, poor repairs.  At a minimum, look at the chain and sprockets and the oil level and condition.  If any of those are in bad shape, assume that other parts have also been neglected.

Thanks! Found a 2009 with 3000 miles for $4000. Picking it up today 🙂

As best I can tell, the ONLY changes from 2008 to 2017, are graphics changes, and the occasional plastic color changes. ZERO MECHANICAL OR ELECTRICAL OR FRAME changes.

Hey DPete I have a 2014 WRR and I had a recall fixed... but I'm sure it wasn't the stator... I was some gasket on the top end. Can you send me a link for that stator recall. You should look up other recalls on the WR250R. I have heard of the fuel pump not working but I didn't know there were recalls on other parts. Anyway I got the gasket done. Now I want to see if my bike has to have other recalls fixed. Thank you for your help

Your local dealer will have recall info, the stator is the only one Yam mailed me

I wonder if the wr250r will receive any changes coming up, partly due to euro 5 emission standards. Supposedly the CRF250L is supposed to be receiving updates for possibly 2022 model year.
