I've got a 2012 WR450 with an FMF Powercore muffler with quiet insert, the comp ECU, opened air box and I removed the starter gear and clutch from the "flywheel".

All I can say is that it rocks. People ride it and love the power and throttle response. The engine pulls clean from bottom to top all the time, whether its hot or cold out, from 3000 to 7500 feet. And I can tailor the power with the GTYR tuner to just about anything I desire.

Its been dragged raced against several bikes, including an '11 WR450F, and it pulls away from them all. Though none of them were 450 motocrossers. And yet its amazingly controllable and is perfectly happy to lug and tractor up just about anything.

It also starts first kick just about every time. Most times my butt doesn't leave the saddle.

The only issue I have is my bike is running hot, but I'm working on that.

I think the WR450F has the best woods engine in the sport, period.
