WR actual weights

I just got a '07 WR125 and my brother got a '06 WR250 and we have an old 1000lb scale that seems to be pretty accurate, 50lb bag weighs 50lbs, etc. So unless I did my math wrong deducting the crate the numbers should be within a pound or so.

Both weighed wet, stock, with headlight and no fuel

'07 WR125 - 213lbs

'06 WR250 - 233.5lbs

I know the actual weight doesn't matter in the real world when all the physics of the bike come together but its still nice to know.

Sounds about right. I have heard that both bikes would be 3-4# heavier than that but it's close.

That sounds about right. I weighed my '06 WR250 on a good medical scale (utilizing a 2x6 which was then subtracted from the total) and it came in at 231 lbs. This was without lights and kickstand. I believe that these bikes carry a good amount of weight in the motor. It is obvious that the motor is larger than most 2Ts from Nipon. However, if there is a good place to carry a bit of extra weight, it would be low and central and that's why the WR does not feel heavy. And guys like Sebastian G. and Nate Kanney can still be competitive with this bike on an international level.

'04 CR 125

That weight sounds real close to me, thanks for doing that. OFG

The 250 motor is from the late 80's and it is huge compared to a japanese 250

Norman says the 125 mill is acopy of a YZ125 and it looks almost the same.

Yes, but like the GG motor as well (also heavier) it doesn't break. I'll take a few lbs. in the motor for solid reliability and longevity.

Oh, they break too!

I'm having main bearings and a new cylinder put on my '04 as we speak.

      So I just sold my bike 2017 TC250 with only 17 hours on it. When it left it was in brand new condition. But 2 days later the engine cases were being split.
      Turns out the Idler gear had snapped off during the new owner’s first ride. Of course I am not paying for the fix as one it is clearly a manufacturing defect. I told him If needed I would help by me claiming it as warranty issue.
      Anyways I did some research and discovered that the KTM/Husky expected a 6x12 to hold the idler gear sys together on 2017.
      Well this seems to be an issue and KTM did fix it for the 2018 models. They actually updated the whole Idler gear sys, but if you still have a 2017 2 stroke the fix before it happens which it could on the first kick would be to replace the bolt with a 6x20.
      You will have to tap the hole for more treads. Actually the 2018 engine case was also updated for this and that’s all they did.
      I own a 2018 TX300 now. One reason why I looked into it. 
      Just thought I would share.

      Greetings to everyone. After a lot of searching I finally decided to join this forum in order to finally find a solution to my problem. Here's my story. Bought in a hurry an sm610 2005 (cylinder with the small tensioner) which wouldn't start cold. Only if I connected it to a car battery would it start but not always and not easy. Got a new 14amp battery and nothing. Spark plugs,starting spray etc nothing worked out. If the engine was cold it would start in an instant very very easily. Took it to a mechanic he told me that it had no compression so he grinded the valves. When I got there to take it back he told me that my pick up coil was in bad condition and needed to be replaced in order to start cold. Of course nothing changed after the valve job and after 5 hours of riding(not constant) my new head gasket blew and when I took it apart I found a crack in the water passage on my head right next to the blown up spot on my gasket. I don't know if it was already cracked or if it cracked after gasket blew all I know is that it was tightened properly as I was in front when this happened. I'm just trying to figure out why i can't get it to start cold. All answers are welcome. I had the head fixed and I'm ready to reassemble the engine. Could the pick up coil actually be responsible for this? Another thing I noticed. My tensioner had an apostate welded up to it so i needed a new cam chain as well as a new tensioner. I have these. Could the ruffled chain be in charge? The engine was perfect when hot starting and working like a charm. Please someone help as I'm ready to take the damned thing and throw it into the ocean.
      PS is the pick up coil from an lc4 engine compatible?
