Hello,

 

I am still new to this forum and forums in general. I would like to ask what I should buy (wr250 vs wr250)? I have ridden ttr 125 and klx 250 4 strokes and am a novice to dirt. they are both in the same price range but am i giving anything up with one or the other?  I am 6', 200lbs and currently ride an aprilia tuono 1000r on the street as my daily ride.  I think I might be in the wrong section, but like i said, i am new to this forum and forums in general.

 

thanks for the advice

Well it looks like you have narrowed it down to the WR 250. It all depends on what type of riding you're going to do. If it's tight trail riding or technical riding I would go the wr250. But it's all around wide-open type riding I would also look at a WR450. The problem is it's very easy to outgrow WR250. You can get a WR450 and run the comp ECU and program it with one of the detuned maps. Then you can tune it up as needed.

Actually meant to say wr250r vs wr450f. Looking at an 08 and 03 respectively. Is the 450 too much for a novice even with my street experience. Or is it something that if I take it easy I can grow into?

added a 14t front sprocket instead of the stock 13t. Smooths out the bike soo much and would recommend to anyone.

I removed the starter gear and starter clutch from behind the flywheel on my 2012 WR450.  It weighed 1.45 pounds.   

 

Probably half that weight was spinning.  I haven't ridden it yet.   It should rev a bit faster and turn better.

 

My bike is now 16 pounds lighter than stock.

I purchased my 2000 WR400 and it has a Yoshimura RS3 stainless street pipe on it, which was rather loud.  I wanted to quiet it down so I ordered the only available insert I could find for it, a Yoshimura RS3 "Offroad application" spark arrester/low volume. 

 

When I received it, I placed the insert in the pipe.  When I went to bolt the end cap back on, I noticed the pipe was too long and the end cap holes were far away from where I would need to install the  the bolts, so I had to cut off about 2 inches of pipe with a grinder.  Now I have the insert installed.  The bike is quieter and visually you can't even tell I modified the exhaust!

 

Installed a UNI filter.  

 

This is my first dirt bike (I am used to riding a 600 F4i).

      So i just rebuild my top end of my 2005 250F, i had 35 houres on my piston and cylinder so i decided to rebuild it.
      it ran perfectly before the rebuild, my timing is right, i have spark, en my sparkplug is a little wet so i have fuel... If i try to kick it it starts to run but after 2seconds it stops running. does anyone know what i have to do?
      thx Medard from belgium

      Hey Guys, 
      So I am 270# and 6'. I used to ride and want to get back into it. I definitely have a good amount of experience to handle both a 250 and 450 but not sure if a 250 will be able to handle me.
      Right now the bikes I am between are:
      2012 YZ450F @ 50 hours for $4000 CAD and trail ridden https://www.kijiji.ca/v-view-details.html?adId=1302150376&requestSource=b 2012 KX450F @ 35 hours for $3800 CAD and trail ridden https://www.kijiji.ca/v-view-details.html?adId=1300722287&requestSource=b 2010 CRF450R @ 45 hours for $3200 CAD and trail ridden https://www.kijiji.ca/v-view-details.html?adId=1296942462&requestSource=b All these bikes are in really good condition from what I can see from the pictures and none of them raced or track ridden. My plan is to build a 5 acre track in my backyard and build some sort of track along with mainly using it for trail riding.
      I guess what I am asking is for some suggestions and opinions that could help me decide.

      Very nice Rekluse Core EXP 3.0 Clutch that has been ran for about 40 - 50 hours.  The Core EXP 3.0 gives you the best of both worlds as it is fully automatic and allows you to operate it just like you would a manual clutch.  Was getting ready to install in a 2017 YZ250F so I wanted to freshen it up and bought a brand new EXP 3.0 Disc which has never been oiled up or installed.  Before getting time to install the clutch, I decided to sell the bike.  It fits a 2014 - 2018 Yamaha YZ250F. 
      ONLY $575 shipped anywhere in the lower U.S.
      Please call or text me at 801-362-8899.
      Thanks!
