BIGGER GUY BIKE QUESTION

Recommended Posts

Hey guys, 

I spent a reasonable amount of time looking at a potential new bike. I am a 6 ft rider that is 270 pounds. So I have been looking at a 14+ YZ 450 or a 12+ KX 450. Which one is better for a big guy? (I prefer to keep it stock if possible)

you didnt mention what type of riding you want to do nor your prior riding experience.  Both of those make a big difference on what bike to recommend.

Sorry, I should've been more specific! I plan on racing mx and I've ridden an 09 CRF 250, a 13 YZ 250F and a 12 YZ 450F. I've ridden 3 different Kawi 250Fs, an 08, 12 and 13. I'm also an intermediate level rider if that helps.

Kawasaki has adjustable pegs and bars, makes life a little better for a big guy.
