    Bought this bike from original owner, an older gentleman that babied it, stopped riding, and I pretty much stole it for the price. Have the intensions of turning it into a supermoto down the road since it's pretty easy to make it street legal where I live. It's next to new, absolutely flawless mechanically, electric start, headlight, all electrical work perfect, and only a couple graphic blemishes. Orginal owner had AIS kit installed, grey wire mod done, all the uncorking goods for me not to worry about (all looked very professional too). After first ride I replaced both sprockets and chain, chain roller, chain guide, and chain slider. Installed trail tech vapor computer, tusk enduro lighting kit, sicass keyed ignition switch. The bike is so much fun to ride, I honestly don't get tired of it on michigan trails. Power is incredible, handles great, easy to ride, suspension is probably my favorite part about the bike it's very nice. Coming off of an 02 yz250 that's understandable lol. Comparing my two bikes-the WR has more power, but the YZ is a much more aggressive delivery. Overall very fun bike 5/5. Also very glad to still be carbureted!

    I use this bike for woods riding. This is the first bike I ever bought, and I was told it was used as a spare bike that didn't get ridden very much. I think he wasn't being truthful lol it rode great at first, brought a buddy that has ridden most of his life to check it out and it was in really great shape for the year. Spring of 2016 I put 30+ hours on it and did a lot of upgrades in between. I learned a lot about jetting, and worked really hard getting it all dialed in for peak performance. Ended up tearing the top end apart because I heard some noise that made me concerned. Found crank bearings were worn, con rod bearing had really bad side to side play, piston didn't look too bad but still wanted to replace, luckily cylinder was in good shape. I did a complete top and bottom rebuild with OEM parts. Kinda expensive but $800-$900 later-a lot of time, patience, and cleaning-and I have basically a new engine and all the tools to rebuild one again. Rebuilt carb, repacked silencer, new chain and sprockets, all at the same time. Around 12 hours since rebuild and it's running very strong, great power, and so much fun to ride. Still have a little carb work to do, need to go up a size or two on the pilot jet. Overall though the bike is a blast, people told me it was too much to start with but honestly I think it was perfect to start with, I'm certainly not a greatly skilled rider but it taught me a lot, and it made me progress a lot and quickly.
