Anyone weigh their 400 XCW?

Recommended Posts

Seriously considering buying a 2009 400 XCW tomorrow but I'm concerned about the weight. I ride a CRF250R (270 TR kit) setup for woods now. Using my trusty digital bathroom scale, one wheel at a time I get 244lbs for the crf-tank half full with skidplate, handguards, scotts damper, flywheel weight, lights etc...

From what I read in Dirtrider FE390 vs 400XCW test the KTM weighs 249.

Wondering how accurate that is?

I was originally set on the 250 XCFW but now Im not so sure... I loved the power of the drz400 I just sold, and prefer low end torque. If anyone has ridden both, I'd love to hear your opinion.

I ride some enduros, harescrambles but mostly trailride nasty-rocky singletrack with some "last man standing" style climbs etc...

Thanks

The 400 KTM's are wonderful trail bikes. The wet weight with 1/2 tank of gas plus accessories will be in the 265 lb range, or at least 20 lbs heavier than the CRF250R. Remember that the 400/450/530 KTM XC-W's all weigh the same.

My '09 400 weighs 278 lbs ready to ride with a full (stock)tank of gas.

I have about 25 lbs of guards and accessories on it:

headlight, taillight, mirror

GPR v4

handguards

pipe guard

skidplate

disc guard

progressive rear spring

Mich X-11 rear Trials tire

Ultra HD tubes

spare tube in airbox

I loved my CRF250 but it was a problem if I lost momentum on a hill and at high altitude. The 400's weight is most noticable on steep downhills and g-outs or jumps but it's a great bike for singletrack and rugged dual sport rides. It is the most versatile and fun bike I have owned!
