Hi all, I currently have a yz450F with wr gearbox,wanting to buy a 06 yz250F with a wr gearbox installed aswell. I am weighing in at 200 lb about 92kgs, was wondering if I am to heavy for this bike.
If someone out there can plz give me any advice.

Riding in the provesional class in South Africa..
Thanx guys

be a man keep the 450 F if you're going to buy a new bike get the 06 YZ450F it has the 5 speed

Yeah, whats the reason for dropping 200cc's? I would think you could just manage the 450F, and change the gearing so its more torque and less top speed?

Hi,Thanx guys for the reply.

The 450 is to heavy for me.I have ridden a 05 250F and I am alot faster on it.The 450 have alot of power at your command and the 250F have to revved and pushed realy hard to go fast... Alot of pro class ridders in South Africa ride 250F WITH the WR gearbox...They realy fly.....

What else do I need to Know
