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.

Only thing you might need to change is springs and valving in shocks.
