hi all cracking site,lots of info

can anybody help me,i have a 2001 yzf 426 and a 1999 wrf 426.
the wr seat height is smaller then the yz,not usually an issue but im 6ft 5 and feel a bit big on the wr.
i was going to get the higher seat foam but after lots of measuring im putting the height difference down to the subframe.
have i hit the nail on the head or can anybody point me in the right direction.
if this is the issue is it possible to fit a subframe off a yzf to the wr and is it a straight swap.
any help would be lurrrrvly.:thumbsup:

Hi Stevo,

As a fellow Brit, can I suggest you lower the footpegs on the WR.....:thumbsup:
