Hey, I had a 2002 ttr250. It was nicely set up. I trimmed the snorkel out of the air box. There is no restrictor in the header. I put a procircuit t4 silencer on it. I rejetted it. I put a UNI air filter on it. I dual sported it. Got it plated tagged inspected. Then, I got pretty serious about trail riding every single week end. Well my ttr although fun was beginning to leave something desired in the power to weight dept. Not to mention I couldn't even hardly take it on the freeway anyway (it really gets blown around on the freeways). So I put out a few emails to trade guys with stronger bikes on Craigslist. My ideal bike would have been a post 2k yz250f. However, no one was taking me up on my offers to trade, until a guy with a 1999 wr400 wanted to trade me. here's my ttr Here's the wr400: Here's how the deal went down. I took the pro circuit silencer off the ttr, and kept it. I put the stock silencer back on the ttr. I gave the guy my ttr, and I gave the guy the original jets back. The guy gave me his wr and $150 in cash. And we exchanged title's. So I ride the wr400 this sat. The power difference is awesome. The suspension is better. It's more rigid and offers more feedback. but the wr400 listed at 251lbs. feels much heavier in the sand then my ttr250 which is listed at 249 lbs. Also, I have been soo spoiled on the electric start... I know if you follow the starting procedure it's fairly simple, but obviously nothing compares to the magic button. Well I'm looking on Craigslist this morning and noticing wr400's all over the place for even cheaper then this guy was asking. Now granted the ttr250 is not exactly a highly reguared bike, but mine was done up pretty nicely. Of course sinse I kept the silencer and he gave me $150 in cash you could basically subtract around $350 from what he was asking... So... did I make a good deal? I plan on taking as much weight off the wr400 as I can. I want to get 16lbs off of it. I will take the headlight, odometer, kick stand, and gaurds off. I will replace the fenders and tank and shrouds with YZ plastics. I'll probably sell my t4 silencer and get an after market pipe for this bike. And I'll probably put an aluminum sproket on it. After all that I think I will be happy... Maybe I should have just sold my bike and with a little extra cash bought a YZ F-series bike. The problem is I want something that doesn't exist. I want a light powerful electric start woods bike. If I got a YZ it would be geared all wrong for the woods. I like the WR suspension and engine. I just wish it was electric start and lighter. What's the verdict? -Sorry for the long post.
