The ninja is a parallel twin that got stroked out. It needed it bad.

I may take them off you. Krista is going to ride this bike too, so it may need dropped to suit her better.

Whatever you think is a fair price.....I'll even deliver them the two miles. Lol.
I may be interested in them....in fact, I know I am, if the price is right. Delivered to 08015(NJ)?? Let me know, thanks. DZ

Anyone weigh their WR250R?

WR250R Weight

297 lbs with 3.1 gallons gas (IMS 3.1 gallon tank - full)
283 lbs with 1 gallon gas (I believe that matches the factory spec)

All the usual extras stripped off, FMF header, FMF Q4 pipe, Moose bar guards, alloy foot pegs, seat concepts seat, IRC GP-1 tires, heavy duty tubes.

I suppose the WR could lose a couple more pounds, (I've heard 178 bare minimum) but probably not worth it. (stuff like mirriors, bar guards, lightweight battery, standard weight tubes, kickstand and whatever...)

Ohioans taking this bitch over....

Here's my new entry to the WRR crew. 2008, 5k miles, the necessary farkles... Procured from an inmate today. His pic, it's still on the back of my truck right now, couldn't ride it home because I had to take my 5 month old son with me to pick it up. Plan on making it not so clean tomorrow....
