All you TT'ers with YZ Timing

Does it help on the trails?
Sorry for so many questions

I am not convinced it will help you on the problem you are experiencing. It sounds like you are having trouble at the track with the WR wide ratio transmission. This transmission is set up for trail riding rather than track riding. To fix this issue, I think you should pick the gear you want to be in going up the ramp, then, change sprocket (either up or down) to get the right gear in the sweet spot going up the ramp.

The yz cam gave me better throttle reponse, mid and top power.
Sounds like you need to change some gearing.
Just as a note I tried a 13 tooth frt sproket and could not beleive the difference it made.INSTANT THROTTLE RESPONSE, pulled every gear way better, could snap the frt wheel off the ground anywhere anytime. Definitely better out of the corners too! Basically it becomes more like the yz450 with the lower gearing. just use 2-4th gears .
I could circulate the whole track in 3rd and 4th.

YZ timing is the way to go. Makes your bike more responsive and not so lazy feeling.

I didn't notice any low end loss but a significant mid range and top end gain and much quicker throttle response. The bike gets on it much quicker and revs smoother. I don't feel it performs like a YZ though because of the heavy flywheel, wide ratio gear box and extra weight. It still feels mellower to me compared to a YZ.
Try changing it and see how you like it. If you decide you don't like it, change back. It will take much less time to change back once you've been in there and changed the timing and know what to expect. It's very easy.
