I have always owned Kawasaki's. I owned a KLR250 as my first bike which I rode for quite a few years until I upgraded to a KLX300. I have enjoyed the KLX for the last 4 years. I have recently begun pushing the bike to the limits, particulary with the suspension (which is stock). Serious jumping has become part of my riding ability as well as the need for more speed. I have a mate who is similar in riding ability and he has a WR250 and I can keep up with him on the KLX with out too much problem (he has a little more get up out of corners), however I have recently come across a good deal on a WR426 which I am finding to walk past. I am early 30's and weigh around 85kgs. Any advice would be appreciated. This bike is a 2002 model with low KM's.
