I'm sure there are other riders like me wondering if they should have held out for the wr250. I'm only 5'9" 155lbs so when I first got the wr400 I thought I had made a BIG BLUE mistake. I ride very tight, rocky, steep trails in south central PA. Any how after dropping it about 100 times on the side of hills, flooding the carb, stalls etc... I was feeling very frustrated. BUT, like anything in life, it takes time to get s**t worked out sometimes. With the addition of a flywheel weight and some saddle time I now love the bike. Even in the tight, steep crap. Once you get used to how the bike is going to react AND more importantly what situations NOT to put the bike in you're ready to go. I would not trade the power for weight reduction. Plus, mamma likes the shoulders and upper arms I'm gettin' from horsin' this thing around. Anybody else feel the same????
