Brief opinion needed on rideability of WR 450...

My last dual duty bike was a DRZ 400S, and while it was a nice bike it was a little slow for street use and a lot heavy for dirt use. On of the reasons why I bought a YZ 250F shortly after and I absolutley loved that bike! So my thinking is the best of both worlds would be a competent off road machine with enough power and driveability for the street.
So is the WR suitable for my purposes? It seems to be the perfect dual sport bike and I have heard awesome things about it, but thought I would get the opinion of the TT faithful.

I lower the rear sprocket a few teeth and disconnect the TPS. That would make a pretty nice street ride. I've ridden mine on the street a few hundred miles, and my only complaint is that the stock gearing is a bit low for highway use.

I did have a question about oil capacity: I know of guys who have converted CRF's and they have had to add an oil resevoir to increase its capacity when riding and I was wondering if the WR was similar.
