I wouldnt discriminate against anyone because of their age but if I was to give a 15 year old some advice on what bike to get I would definatly tell him to get the XR. If you have substantial riding abilitys (be honest, because if you dont you could regret your decision) then I would say you would probably enjoy riding the WR in the dez. (Didnt I read somewhere you ride out west?)
Finally, I would recommend leaving the stop in, but as far as the exhaust goes I wouldnt think that would make a extreme difference either way. Its gonna be pretty hard to make this bike "tame".
You did mention you are 6', so thats definatly in your favor because I have always considered the WR a fairly tall bike.
Good luck and let us know what you come up with!
