    YZ250 or Wr450

    i too have both bikes 06 wr450,02 yz250. i love them both. i,m 53 225. both bikes are set for eastern woods riding.you can ride the 250 more aggesive, charge harder. brke better.hit the big wopdee doos easier.the 250 is more of a racer.but i love the 450 when i want to kick it back a notch, or your allday riding pace. plus if you need to jump on the road,the 450 is super fun ,an the 250 sucks . i thought i would sell my 250 after getting the 450, but its still rules in the tight single tracks.dont forget the 450 gets much better mpg,s.

    Is this kx500 better than a wr450?

    having owned a k5,and it was set for the woods, i would say no way. far to demanding,it will tire you out way faster. mine was a 90 but the bike never changed in all its prodution run.i had my fun with it but after riding a newer 250 i was convinced. the 500 will not turn or stop is not as comfortable as my 02 yz250 and i pushed that to the back of the shed when i rode my new wr450. and if your going to hurt yourself the 500 will do that in an instant.
