I don't know. I just google the specs, and usually get the # from motorcycle-usa.com or whatever site comes up.
The XT225 "feels" really light, but they say my WR450 is only 248 lbs, and it feels heavier than the 225 when I'm stuck or trying to lift & drag it over a log, or when trying to turn around in a tight spot on the side of a steep hill.
I was always under the impression that the DR350 was quite a bit lighter than the DRZ400S. But if you weighed your bike at over 300 lbs, I guess there isn't much difference. Maybe the Z carries it a lot higher?
