I currently have an 03 YZ450. I am an older rider and don't do any of the crazy stuff. Use it mainly to chase my son on YZ125.

Considering a move to an 11 WR450.

How big of a change would I expect? Would I be disappointed?

We mainly ride trails with a couple of trips to the track.

Thanks

Your only regret will be that you didn't do it sooner. If you go the track frequently and do all the jumps you'll need a revalve that will cross over from track to trail better.

^This.

The only scenarion in which you'd be less than 100% ecstatic with the bike, is if you hardly never ride trails, and spend 90% of the time at the track.

Other than that you'll be kicking yourself for not doing it sooner.
