Hi guys,

I'm thinking about trading in my 2000 KDX 220R for a 2002 WR426F. What should I expect to get on a trade for my bike? It's a clean 2000 with FMF Rev pipe and silencer and Boysen Reeds. New back tire. Bike's is great shape. The shop that has the 2002 WR426F wants C$6,000 (US$4,400). I would save on taxes if I trade in my KDX.

Also, any thoughts on the WR250F? I like trail riding long distances mostly.

Thanks,
Kidxer

I think that the WR is going to be a much heavier bike. If you're wanting to go to a big 4 stroke, look into a used KTM. They are very well-built machines and generally have plenty of beans available.

I would hate to argue with John, but one of my friends has a WR250F and says it's the best trail bike he has owned. He purchased a KTM 380 (?) and said he didn't like it as much as the WR.

After looking closer at your question and John's response, I would have to agree with John. The 426 is an extremely heavy bike and maybe too much for tight trail riding. However, I still have to stick with my original assessment about the WR250F. I rode the bike and I liked it a lot for trail riding.

It has a lot of power for the tracks as well.

I have a 2003 wr250 I am selling and going back to my kx200 the wr has the perfect power for the trails and racing but it feels a lot heaver than a 2 stroke.
