That's exactly what I was planning on doing to my new 450.
Did you notice any seat-of-the pants diff? Did you
drill out the other side too? If so, how much richer
did you have to go?
Just wondering... I've yet to make a single mod to my WR..

Good luck Merf!!!
Mike, When you look at you bike close up it looks red.... That's a pretty nice vent.. The guys at Honda make a pretty cool one for their XR's also.

Dan, I found the plugs here on TTalk store. I ordered 'em
last week (they aren't here yet, if anyone is listening!)
and thought I'd give it a try. So far, my jetting seems a
little rich, but hey, I'm at 6K feet.
Thanks for posting the pix gents!

pastabout 1 1/2" wider than the battery . Basicly look at the factory battery holder, its all one peice and fills the top of your airbox /Answer for better airflow is new battery holder
This is a great help to the air flow but the weak link then would still be where the air is coming from. The only place for air to get to the top of the air box is from the Right side hand hold on the number plate. With the side holes in the air box you get to increase the usable air by the size of your holes

air does come in from the back of the seat/fender area. there is an area at the back of the air box that can be opened up also. it's the area that is kind of a void between the air box and the rear fender. you'll still have to work on the air inlet on the air box top to take advantage of this. be careful when you wash you bike!
i think indy did a few posts on this. he might give us a link to them if he's checking this out.
the little round black inserts are fron uni filter.
it's all these little details that make these bikes so great.

cut out the section on the left side panel that matches the right
This is what I did, all though I have been told it looks like crap, guess I'm not an artist with the dremel tool. I then cut 2 holes in the back of the air box, 1 on either side.

There is very little air flow from this area. The only major air flow when stock is via the hand holds. The side panels, seat, and rear fender pretty much close this area off.
On my YZ250 the rear fender where it meets the seat has some raised area to allow some air through. On the WR this area between seat and rear fender meets pretty snuggly.
