I have had a 2002 WR250f since it was brand new. I really like this bike, but I was thinking of buying a new 2006 WR250f. Will it be worth it? Has the 2006 model improved enough over the 2002 model. I don't have the electric start, but I don't have any problems kick starting mine. I can't see how Yamaha could improve that much with the new model. But if there is noticable improvement. I want a new one.
