WR's have "bucket and shim" type of valve adjustment which is also a pain in the a$$. It literally takes 5 to 7 minutes to adjust valves on the XR. BTW, all Japanese bikes have the bucket and shim type valves. Ktm still uses the tapped method.
On the other hand, the WR is feather light compairing to the XR. At least it feels that way. After all the mods are done, I could swear the WR has 5 times more power than the XR. I'm not exaggerating! The handling is superb. It'll make you go way faster than the old, trusty xr. You'll be able to go much faster on the WR and it will feel safer than the XR.
WR's are known as very reliable bikes too.
You can find good info on all kinds of mods here.

I lowered my xr650r, shaved seat, lowered forks in triple clamp, and lowereing link, I'm your same height.
The WR is much taller than my lowered XR but since it's much lighter I have no need to change it. The magic button will save us short guys duiring stalls in tough spots any way.
Like other guys have told me, "go for the WR and never look back." I find my self looking back often, just to see where my ridding buddies are when I'm in the tight stuff! LOL.

How could I forget the magic botton! It's a life saver no matter how tall you are.
