My '03 WR450 is very tall. Not a problem for me, but a vertcally challenged person may have issues. Powerwise, it's got nothing the CRF doesn't have....

Some will say it is a heavy beast of a bike. I only ever noticed that when I was lying on the ground with the bike on top of me. Let 'er rip.....

I own a 2001 WR426. Its been a very reliable trail bike...and plenty of power (especially with the free mods). I agree that whether its "too big" depends on the rider. Im 6' and 185 lbs solid C class, maybe slow B class rider on a good day. I have always found that the WR wears me out quickly...its about 270 lbs with fuel. I rode the WR for a while before I had the chance to ride a modern trail specific 2t...namely, a 2008 KTM 300 EXC. I couldnt believe the difference in handling of the KTM. I bought a 2007 KTM 300 XC a few months ago. Now, the WR feels like a tank..so its all relative. If its in your budget, buy a KTM 250/300 EXC and you will never look back...if its not...the WR is a very capable trail bike. By the way, the XR 250 and WR 250 are no lightweights. If you can handle the CRF450R power, the WR power shouldnt be an issue.
