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?

The big differences coming from the street will be learning to use the clutch and learning to ride on loose, unpredictable surfaces. In both these cases the 250 is a better choice as it's more tractable, lighter, and has a lighter clutch pull. Can you learn this on a 450? Yes, of course. The question is how quickly will you build confidence. I'd start with the 250 and resist the urge to spend a bunch of money on it for the first year. After that if you feel like you've outgrown it you can trade up. Unless you are riding fast, wide open terrain you won't get left behind because of your bike. The wr250 is a very capable woods weapon.

So here is my 2012 WR450.

 

These were taken in Utah a few weeks ago. We have been taking a week long vacation in Utah for the last few years. Great riding and a great trail system. Not alot of single track but 1 or 2 track, road... doesn't matter much to me as long as I'm not home.

These are the upgrades I have on the bike so far. I have the GYTR skid plate and radiator guards on the bike. IMS 3gal fuel tank. Seat Concepts seat. Garim 62s. Stock exhaust but the pee shooter is removed. GYTR ecm and reprogrammer. Throttle stop replaced. And the trailer to get me anyplace I want to go.

Just bought myself a 2004 wr450 a few days back.  :ride: 
As it came with a heap of extras, and i had time to spare, i installed the following:

Whipps bashplate
acerbis handguards
Sgb gripper seat
Renthal gold bars
Clark long range tank with dual reserve setup  :thumbsup: 
And an aussie made staintune exhaust.
Oh, and a fresh set of radiator shrouds and graphics.

Looks awesome all kitted out, but i must say i am very impressed with this bike even though its an 04.
Love the power of this trails weapon but only time will tell in reliability department :D  
Lets hope this yami outlasts me  :confused:

      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!
