Not to resurrect an old topic...but...
Permanently injured my left hand last xmas...needed something with smooth light clutch action..and a little lighter would help too..
Just finished my first season on my 2012 KTM 350 XCF-W......I hate to admit it..but #$%^& awesome!!!
Clutch effort less than half of my old cabled 2004 WR...and 40 pounds lighter....fit the bill for me perfectly. (East coast woods rider and single track).
On the down side....having spent the last year on the KTM forum on TT, I have to say that this WR450 forum is IMHO, the absolute best!! Interesting and comprehensive range of issues and, from my perspective the most thoughtful and knowledgeable group of contributors anywhere. I personally was able to solve several problems over the years with the great advice I received from this forum.
Even now (as you can see) I can't stay away.
On the positive side...still have the old WR...my son wants to take it over...what could be better than that!!
