My WR400F fitted with DOT Motocross tires and street-legal goodies makes an excellent choice for all around fun! Streetriding a dirtbike legally is more fun than anyone should be allowed to have, especially a WR400F. (CAUTION POSSIBLE HOOLIGAN BIKE!) The bike is fast at hillclimbs, motocross tracks, sand-dunes and trail-riding, plus the bike ALWAYS STARTS ON THE 1ST KICK! I couldn't be happier. Yamaha is coming out in 01' with a WR426F and is said to SMOKE the 400, if you are power hungry it will be worth the wait, otherwise get a 400 before they're gone, I'm with Powers Motor Sports Fremont,MI and have had a couple of 2000 WR400F's traded back in for a TTR250 and a KLX300 because riders felt less power would be a better match for them. Thanks to the fully adjustable motocross suspension you can dial in compression and rebound to your riding style and the 3.2 gallon tank is perfect for all day riding. The motor has great low-end performance and with high RPM 2stroke like horsepower to match. The roll on power this bike has can make you lazy because you won't shift as often as you think you'll need too. Holeshots in 2nd gear are easy. 3rd gear can handle almost any trail or motocross track with nonshifting ease. My personal recommendations are leave the Intake & Exhaust Restricters in til your sure your ready, the seat is ROCK HARD until you break it in, the vibration in the handlebars can be helped with Renthal handlebars and ProGrip Gel Grips. Also Works Connections frame guards made a nice touch. Yamaha's stock Head-pipe is slightly in the way for oil filter changes so White Brothers makes the Highboy Head-pipe which tucks in real nice and out of the way of filter removal, the E series performance muffler makes tuning the big 4stroke nice too! Thank You YAMAHA! You broke the rules, a 4stroke that competes with 2strokes AWESOME! I couldn't be happier. Also checkout www.powersmotorsports.net
