yz250 vs. wr250/450

Recommended Posts

Hi,

I'm going to buy a new bike, but I have a few questions for the experts on this forum.

I'm 6'2" weigh 250 lbs, and I've been riding a friends '03 yz250f on trails and rock quarries for about a year.

The yz250f seems very powerful, but I'm wondering what the difference between the wr250f is, or even the wr450f.

I definitely know I don't have the experience to control a yz450f, but I've been told that a wr450f's power is more controllable due to it's tuning.

I've also been told that due to my size, a 250f is too small. However, I don't really see that logic... the yz250f is such a damn powerful bike.

Can anyone explain the differences a little better, or give me their suggestions?

Cheers

i think the 250 is plenty of bike for you! plenty. but you could get a yz450f to grow into. just take it easy at first and go from there.

Mix well the following:

1. trail ride exclusively

2. large rider with one year experience

3. desire to continue riding (IE "wants to buy his own bike")

Bake for 35-40 min. at 450F.

Sounds like the perfect receipe for a WR450F IMHO.

Ride it stock and later if you want more just pull the WR corks.

:thumbsup:
