There is nobody who is gonna shoot roost farther than me or beat me in the open, well in the tight sections either(just takes more effort). I always have to wait for the 250's to catch up
All in all, with your weight, you might be better off on a two stroke 250(very fast and light) or you can try and tame the beast

A YZ250F would be perfect for you. I can whip all the big bores on my YZ250F, very easily in the woods. Mind you, it pumps out about 40hp now with engine work done.
Alright well i am 5,7 and growing. About 135lbs. I ride kinda agressive. I have about 3 years of ridin experience. And i ride woods about 99% of the time
I can go way faster on the WR450, but it is hard to keep the pace up. It is far too heavy. Better for the faster flowing stuff like trails and desert. Not tight woods.
As stated before, skip the WR250F unless you want to ride it on the road.
If you really like to be aggressive, nothing says it more than a 2 stroke. Get some balls. Get a CR500AF!!!

It was fine for the first year as I got back in the groove. I rode it for another couple years and had to "wring it's neck" to get the power I needed to ride aggressively.
Then I moved to CO and felt like I was on a freakin 50cc minibike. It was so underpowered it was almost dangerous to ride.
So I plopped down the money for a WR450 and this thing is better than sex. If you are worried about too much power - don't. Get the free mods done and get it tuned for your altitude, etc. Get them to tune it for better off idle response and all your dreams will be fulfilled.

Take back everything I just said. If you are planning on spending most of your time on single track then go with the KTM, for more wide open type trails go with the big bore WR.

Just buy this thing.
Sweet mother of GOD!
Maybe some of those hill climber guys would want this, you know, rake out the front and extend the swing arm...
It might just be a little much for the tight woods, ya think?
