Stroker can raise the footpegs a little but the frame rails will take a beating in the rocks but then again any bike I ride throgh the rocks is going to come out with some frame rail damage.

My dad has a KLX 250 pumped up to a 300 with suspension mods, hot start, larger header pipe, stronger valve springs, different carburator, jetter right with about anything else you can think of. He is meticulous and it is set up very good. It made me want a 4 stroke. He loves the bike.
He test rode my basically stock WR426 for about 20 minutes. Then he proceeded to RIDE my 426 for the rest of the day with an ear to ear grin. He is now contemplating coming out of retirement for long enough to get the money to buy one.
426 has more bottom end torque, more top end horse power, and better suspension at the cost of a little weight.

For tight twisty singletrack, the KLX. For more open trail or track, the WR. The KLX is very light (231lb. dry) so whoever said it was heavy must have been compairing it to a 2-stroke.
