i used to ride a KTM 450SX out there, and i like the WR more. the light flywheel (and my laziness with the clutch) led to a lot of stalling. the transmission and gearing for the WR is fine. i found that starting out in 2nd gear is best, or you'll dig a hole.
the weight of the bike isn't a big deal, and that e-start really comes in handy. i have more fun on the WR than the KTM.

The 450's have plenty of poop to pull the 10 paddle, maybe even a 12. Dont even mess around with an 8 paddle, maybe if your on a 125 two stroke.... or is someone gives you an 8 paddle for free.
Im not saying Im the all knowing authority on bike paddles its just my .02... Hope it helps.

Stock tires (130/90 Rear), no free mods so far. Plenty of power...sweet rides.

Yes, Glamis, Pismo, Dumont.
how does it do compared withe the mx 450?
MX bikes have more of a hit and weight a little less.
did you have to do anything to the bike as far as gearing?
Stock on a 05 is 14/50 moved up to 15/50.
Alway's have a ton of fun out there. sure a stock CRF/YZF will do circles around you, but you'll get to ride at night, push the happy button and not kick start, and never over heat:applause:
