I've never riden a W250 (or a 450 for that matter), but rode a YZ250F 01 model a while back. What a lovely bike! The thing that I loved about it the most was the way it turned in, something my 426 doesnt do so well. If you do slow tight trails, I'd go the 250, but it may come up short on big hill climbs.
Do you want the YZ125 fell in the handleing department or do you want 50mph 'roll on' wheelies?

As it has been mentioned in this thread, the great thing about the WR450 is that you can keep it in stock form for a while to get used to it, and then when you are comfortable, start modding it. It is definitely a bike you can grow into and one that will keep you happy for years. I love mine, and it has actually made me a better rider.
Truly, a wolf in sheep's clothing.

I have a WR 400 and it has more power than I need.
I would trade it for a WR 250 in heart beat.
More horsepower + tight trail = less handling.
I have driven my budies WR250 and it felt like a mountain bke compared to mine.
Don't get me wrong I like horsepower but I have more fun blasting along technicle trails all day than doing 4th gear wheelies on a fire road.

No replacement for displacement. What do your buddies ride, 250s or 450s. Try out theirs if possible. You are a big guy get the big bike.
