2005 WR450 -- Ride Report (How does it compare to the 2004)
Posted November 09, 2004 - 09:34 AM
Is there anyone out there that has seat time in both the 2004 & 2005 WR450? I'd really like to see if the bike lost it top heavy feel after they lowered it (plus everything else...fork, engine mods, slimmer, etc.)?
Any and all input comparing the two would be appreciated.

I'm 6'. It doesn't feel like a clown bike to me (not too small). But I imagine with a name like BigE, you might have a few inches on me.
I know that some wr junky can answer this question for mo_xr400. I'm a tall rider so I would like to know how much lower does the bike feel? Is it cramped?
I'm used to riding my father-in-law's Honda old ('85?) CR480. It's a very tall bike (with the kick start on the left side). Switching to the '05 WR450 was a natural transition.
