450... you wiegh about 250 with proper protective gear. I have a YZ250f and a wr450, the 250 is fun on the track but you shift alot more and it required more attention with the throttle, and it goes about 50 mph then you are winding it out, which becomes a drag if you ever take it for a trail or desert romp. Its strictly for track and fun but your too big and would want more after a couple months back in the saddle.

ride ONLY track?

I'd say get a YZ450F (not a WR), especially with your size.

+1

YZ250's are fun and all, but YZ450's are where it's at for us "bigger" guys.

Stay clear of the WR's if you plan on tracking it. :crazy:

i'm 215#'s and i track ride my WR450... rode a CRF250f and a KTM250f and hated them... got on a CRF450f and loved it. i'll probably be getting a YZ450f just for the track and keeping the WR for desert/dunes
