Any XR Owners Looking for a Change?

I have a 2005 Yamaha WR-250F for sale over on Flea Market. It does have a WV street title.
Would consider a trade for a clean, late model XR-250R.
Location, southern West Virginia

I was across FR-55 last Wednesday evening, beautiful ride though a little dusty. The trees on top of the mountain were not completely budded out. That's one of my favorite rides.

Xr?

I thought the XR's that year had the UniTrac single shock rear suspension. It looks suspiciously like an XL-185.
If it is an XR, it will be a six speed, if it's an XL, it will be a five speed.
