I'm I too heavy for a WR250F? or Should I get the WR450? I'm 36(age), 6 foot tall and 240lbs without gear. I'm fit but have a beer gut I'd consider myself a novice.... I grew up with dirt bikes but haven't owned one since 1990( My last one was a 81 Yamaha IT 175) I ride mountain bikes a lot. and really dig black diamond trails. I would assume that at some point I could ride black diamonds on the dirt bike too. I took a honda 2004 CBF450R MX bike for a trail ride at the local OHV park. It was my first time on a bike since 1990. and kept to red or blue trails, I was too chicken for the black diamonds . The CBF450R seemed to have OK amount of low end torque. I think I pinned the throttle once all day, and I don't think I'm really aggressive enough to use the horse power. I'm really attracted to the Suzuki DRZ400 for the milder motor. but I would like to have the lighter weight and better suspension of one of the WR450, but I think its just too much motor for me(if its anything like that Honda ). So maybe a WR250F would be OK?
