I'm looking at buying a used 450 and I was curious, having never been on a WR, how much room there is in the cockpit. I'm 6'-9" about 270 with gear on. I know that given my size I'm not going to fit great on a bike. However, I've noticed some fit better than others. I'm currently riding a KTM300EXC and that thing is great in the roominess department. I would like to stick with KTM for this reason but their 4 strokes carry a hefty price tag, even used. I've read that the WR is a great bike but all the test riders are little guys. Hopefully some of you big guys can help me out. Thanks
Send a PM to ncmountainman. He is your size and has/does own both a WR450 and a YZ450. He has a lot of saddle time on both these bikes and should be able to give you all the info you need.
