First is seat height; I am 5'8, ride in the mountains and like to touch the ground from time to time. Is there a kit to lower the seat height?
Second question relates to the plastic radiator shrouds. I have been riding XR's for years, and have a bad habit of bouncing my bike off rocks. I'm planning on adding a radiator gaurd, but the WR's plastic bits look pretty vulnerable. Do they tend to get ripped off in trees, or is that a needless worry?
Thanks in advance for your help.

Shrouds: Needless worry. Welcome to the modern age of water cooled dirt bikes.

As for the seat height, I can't help you much there.

Crashes are my main concern, although I did put a tree through my calf last year. Yes, I WAS wearing my riding boots. Broke off inside my leg, had to have surgery to remove it. Didn't fall off the bike though.
Maybe less enthusiasm and/or more skill is called for! Naw, more power.

As to the WR450 nobody has one yet and we are all guessing
But from the WR400 up already they are all fairly tall bikes
As Rooster13 says if you rip your shrouds on a tree I think your medical bills will be far higher than your cost of new shrouds
moral of the story "Dont ride into trees"
Cant wait for the WR450
