Stock, the WR is a tall bike, although not as tall as a KTM. Stock seat height is 36.6". And I'm 5'9" with a 32.5" inseam. That said, a friend of mine (Bonnie Abzug on here) is about 5' tall and has a WR. She had to do some suspension work to it, but loves it. You can install a Yamalink, do the factory lowering and get it to be comfortable for you. It's a very reliable bike, fun to ride, pretty light weight and easy to work on. I'm sorry about your XT. That must have been very hard to lose your house.
