    WTF! A modern KTM etc is too tall for me to trail ride. Probably OK on mx track but where you need to push off obstacles modern dirt bikes need 5'10 as a starting point preferably 6'.

    I am only 5.7 and i can foot down and kick start 17 YZ450f easliy.
    the 2015 SM version my son also has is at least 2-3 inches lower. Seat padding cut down, smaller wheels, lower suspension.
    Yamahas might be lower then a ktm due to engine and airbox architecture too i guess....

    I find electric starts negates some of the need to have a lower bike, most of the issues I always had was trying to kickstart stuff on the side of a hill having fallen off once again

    Yeah I'm 5'8 and my 07 GG is perfect if I don't crank up the preload. I tried to buy a new Beta but ended up with the XTrainer with stiffer springs as the KYB Race was too tall. My mate bought that one. Its great riding it on easy tracks but I'd be well in trouble where we got to later.

    Needs clip-ons,fairings and desperately a repaint.
    Why have an upright race rep?

    Will likely be TSS fitting kit as has same bypass thermostat and Tyga pipes (designed for a power valve 485 Cheetah barrel). Steve later bloused out with Athena non pv 421 kit.

    As I said, not many people will know what it is.

    His description is pretty thin. It's like he wants to attract me for example, but not at that price/style. And I kinda have one already.

    This is an interesting one. The price is OK and the bike seems fine but it has been relisted due to a timewaster who won the listing but didn't have a full license? FFS! What is going on there? Ultra moralistic seller? I wonder if he will sell to a minority group like me? Hahaha!

    Admit it. You all saw it and went "I really want to have a go on that". Its the wing that sells it.
