Sounds like a strange question eh? I've had both a 250f and a 450f. I have the same complaints as everyone else; the 450 beats the crap out of me, and the 250 does a great job, but just leaves me wanting a little more sometimes. Is there anything out there, or any ideas on how a guy could build or buy a simple switch that would reduce the power on the 450 to make it perform just like the 250? I know you can't electronically remove 20lbs, but just like the new GSXR1k and the BMW S1000RR the rider can select "modes" for how much power and how the power comes on. Wouldn't it be sweet to have a "mud/ice" setting, or "hole shot" or "fuel conservation"... Maybe I'm dreaming. Or maybe this idea will have to wait for the WR450Fi of the future.
