Hey guys and girls, the other day I was gonna go pick up my WR250X, but with the freight and assembly it was like 9000$. So I tought of it and I decided I was gonna go used for my first bike, I can get either a 09 WR250R with over 1000$ in upgrades for 5g, or a 09 stock WR250X for 4.9g, so I was thinking, wich is the better purchase, because I was still thinking about putting sumo tires after the knobies go out. so, I just want to know from others too :D Well I was thinking WR250R, but I believe we all know the X looks way better, but mehh, hard choice!!! :hammer:

get the x. wheels, tires, and brakes will cost more than the "1000$" the R has.

Btw, thanks for the tip, I didn't realise that, also I believe that it would be also cheaper to buy off-road tires for the X

youre not going to be able to find true mx style dirt tires for 17" rims. you could go with something like the avon danzias or whatever theyre called

I LOVE the look of the X, like the bike more, but I'm just scared I won't be able to go in dirt, I bet it will, but I just don't want to pay that much for the street, but looking at VelvetCows videos, im quite convinced it is good enough :D well I will keep you informed on my buy.

oh, yeah. the x is ok for the dirt. not really for hill climbs and stuff or really sticky mud, but a little track/trail duty is alright. riding dirt with the street tires will make you a better rider

I Bought an X in December, its an 09 with 1500 miles, picked it up for 3500. Keep looking man, deals are out there. Probably not as many in the spring, but youll find one. I love the X. It replaced a bike that was boring me. I have had it off pavement too, it does OK. Good luck with your search and welcome to SMJ. :D
