The stock oversize gas tank on the KTM is perfect with the gas in the shrouds. My aftermarket tank on the WR450 goes up to the handlebars.
The KTM is more nimble and narrower between the legs and feels lighter and less top heavy. The WR is more stable and easier to handle in first gear rocky technical riding. They ride differently enough that it takes a little while to adjust. The 525 needs very few mods from stock the WR needs a lot of annoying mods to run with the big dogs.
They are great bikes and you will not be disappointed having both!

Hey Dan Lorenze, if your out there and read this let me know if there is a noticeable difference between the two in size. Thanks!

Check out this picture below, on the left we have a stock Canadian 03 that I just finished jetting for a friend, on the right is my 05 midget (sorry, little person) bike.. WOW.... What a difference huh? Both bikes are stock and new.

OH MY GOD !!!!!
The 05 looks like a "mini me" next to the 03! I did not know it was so much smaller and narrower! It may now make a great woods bike!
