The WR250R is an absolute pig off-road compared to a KDX, about 70 lbs heavier and less horsepower. A good running KDX 200 or 220 (pipe and reeds) can produce mid 30's horsepower. The front stock KDX supension is undersprung but the WR250 has a very poorly valved rear shock - so even the suspension is not as good as a stock KDX off-road. Look at it this way - Fredette won gold ISDE medals on KDX's - even with his skills he couldn't have done that if the bike was 290+ lbs....
