Wow, I need one for my YZ 400, I assume it would still fit even though it isn't the WR. Any idea how much the thing cost?

o.k. let me get this straight...........
You pay $1,500 to add 18 pounds of weight to a $5,000+ motorcycle??
Am i reading this right?? Did someone add a "0" in there???
And people call the TTR225 a "porker"?
(that bike felt light to me by the way!)
Wouldn't that make the 400 / 426 applicable for the bacon slicer as well?? :confused:
Yea, i'm old fashioned.
Yea, i'm cheap.
But spending $83.33 per pound for dead weight just doesnt jive with me???? :think

My DRZ was cheaper than a WR, and came with the button at no extra cost. It's worth every pound. In fact what turned me off to the WR426, was watching people struggle to start thier YZ400's.

I cant agree with those who continue to believe that YZ/WR's are hard to start. The only time I ever have to kick more than two times, is when the bike is really hot. At that point I just pull the hot-start button, and its first kick from there. Its never been a problem with me. I have the technique down, and its been easy since.

wayneo426, I totally agree. Once I got the routine down I have not had a problem since. It isn't that hard... Just the other day at the ORV I killed it putting along in too low a gear. While it was still rolling slowing (say ten miles an hour) I managed to pull out the kickstarter, find TDC, and restart it, and keep riding. Easy as pie. My bike has only been hard to start when I didn't follow the drill. Other than that, first or second kick. I have to say the most fun I have had with this was when I was in CA ridng at cow mountain with Fremont Guy... For some reason a guy in the parking lot was stabbing his YZ like a dang fool, totally convinced that his bike was REALLY a two stroke. Wasn't following much of a pattern, and probably wasn't jetted anywhere close (obnoxious aftermarket pipe, and didn't look like he took much care of the bike... so how much work would he have done?) Anyway, I rolled my bike out of the trailer, got dressed, walked over, and with the guy and all his pals watching started mine first kick. :) Excellent feeling.

Same here. Last week a bunch of guys seemed to take alot of interest in watching me roll it off the trailer, and get set up.
I jump on, find TDC, and start it with one kick. I guess they were betting on how many it would take to fire it up, and the guy that had 2 lost....... :)
