today i went to view da WR250X.. at bukit merah... its really cool.. and i love drz too.. but when da mech told me all da drz has da same problem... which is da GEAR SHAFT CRACKS! and very hard to find in singapore gotta order... which turns me off and nw looking at WR250X instead LOL!!!!... yeah its kinda overpriced... gotta get it SOON after i get my class 2A lol...

 

Hmmm... as an owner of 2 DRZ 400SMs which spend half of their time being raced around on race tracks... a 2006 with 13,000 plus km and a 2007 with 16,000 km on them.... what crack are we talking about here??

 

No such mentioned of this "gear shaft" cracks mentioned in Thumpertalk which is a forum hosting owners of DRZs here in the USA... and there are even more DRZs here than Singapore.

 

Did the mech show you a heap of cracked gearshafts from DRZs?? Or just talk only?

 

Don't get me wrong, a 250 in the hands of a skilled rider, can run circles around the 400s on the race track. Seen alot of that happening here on the race tracks. Note the 2 keywords here... skilled rider and race track. And I would get a 250 if I am a hardcore track addict, worth spending the money then.

 

But if I am using the bike for commuting most of the time.. and have to spend that amount of money to ride a street legal supermotard with a Class 2A licence.... I'd take a DRZ400SM any day... simply because I am getting more bang for the buck.

chill bro angelo.. diz guy is still a newbie wif his 2b.. has not fully understand da world of bikes yet n prone to be gullible to da wordz of da "ALL-KNOWLEDGEABLE" mechs..

 

drz has been proven da toughest n durable engine.. da bike has been da same since yr 2000 up till now.. n its still sellin worldwide.. no complaints of da bike falling apart n parts are scarce.. da bike has been arnd fer 8 yrs.. so watz der to talk abt da reliability n parts support fer diz bike..?

 

i nvr deny da fact dat da new efi 250 is a better bike.. but i`d rather fully utilise my 2a license n ride a 400.. n i dun ride da track on a daily/weekly basis.. itz more of a daily transport.. so a 400 shud suffice a mthly track go-er wif enuff power on bof track n rd.. sum mite make diz an only track bike as dey got a 2nd bike.. but i`d rather spend dat 16k on a 2nd hand 510 or 525.. well.. fer diff ppl dey got diff views.. diz iz mine.. =)

Get it right.

 

WR250F

 

05' and 06' are same model (steel frame)

07' and 08' are same model (alloy frame)

 

What we see on sg roads are the 05/06 model, and indeed they are rare.

 

You claimed that the 08' WR250F is LTA approved. What's your source?

Or you throwing smoke bomb?

 

if you think i'm throwing smoke bomb, so be it. go ask HL if it makes you happy.

 

anyway, even if it's homologated, i doubt you will even buy it.

 

80% of the 250Fs are usually exported out even after homologation, not too sure about 250X as it's a new bike.

Yes the WR-X is on the road already.... OTR price WITHOUT insurance = 15.3K...

Thanks for the info...

 

blue/black... sounds familiar... I got many of that on my legs last time riding bikes...:cheeky:

hi,ninjalite! my advice is to try 2 get a ktm 200 then! lighter with enough power n good enough suspension 2 do the jumps at tuas. xr 4oo can jump but u might have to do some work on the suspension same goods 4 drz. ktm 400 good suspension but more powerful.

 

bikes can be view at dirt wheel,tampines. all the above mentioned bikes have used 1s in stock.

2 many internet racers and not enough real racers in s g!
