WR250 2006 issues?
« on: August 17, 2017, 12:57:39 pm »
I am just toying with the idea of a ring a ding and have a good condition WR250 available, it's a 2006 but in good condition not used hard, any big issues? Any idea of value?
When is this "Old enough to know better" supposed to kick in?

By ring a ding do you mean a 2t? They were only produced until something like '99 IIRC. 2006 would be a last 4t steel frame I think. Value probably about 20k. Around 25-28 for a alu frame

I think those 2 stroke wr 's were 200 cc so I am guessing a yz 250 with the wr conversion "gearbox and weighted flywheel long range tank " and then it should be alu frame the price estimate seems right  :thumleft:

If you ever open the engine make sure you line up the splines on exhaust ports .One  can also set the torque curve  for different types of riding ( tight forest stuff or open enduro O/Road) Oh mines also registered for road use !! Hooligan bread & milk bike  :biggrin:

Nice long range tank as well, mt 2006 TE610 also had the Marzocchi / Sachs suspension and it worked great  :thumleft: If the price is right buy.

Blue and yellow is older, 2007 should be Red and Black.

I have a 2003 WR 250 , not a single issue so far. Has plenty bottom end for technical riding. Mine is a blue and yellow
