I've been a long time lurker so I thought I should contribute something. I bought this WR as a leftover in '07 cheap from a big dealer in Minnesota who was dumping stock on
I did the "free" mods including a GYT-R AIS removal/jet kit, ProMotoBillet exhaust
insert and hand guards. I rode it a few times and life intervened. Sadly it was parked
in the garage until this last spring when a buddy bought a '06 YZ450F and needed a
riding partner. I pulled it out, changed the fluids, aired up the tires and it started
I had forgotten how much fun a dirt bike could be! So now that winter is
here I can spend time in the garage updating the old WR. This is going to be a long
winter, so I have plenty of time on my hands for a project. The first phase is done.
Here it is.
-FMF Power Bomb and Power Core 4 full exhaust system.
-Braking Wave rotors, sintered pads, stainless steel lines, Dot 4 fluid. Acerbis,
ProMotoBillet disc guards, Works Connection rear caliper guard.
-Renthal Fatbars, billet mounts and grips.
-SuperSprox rear sprocket.
-Misc. WC billet parts, aluminum frame guards, skid plate and radiator guards.
-FLU Designs graphics kit, UFO Enduro rear fender.
That's it for now, I have a few little things ordered, billet fuel cap, wide
pegs, Zeta oil filter cover, white Cycra fenders (new style) and hand guards.
I'm planning to send the forks and shock to Race Tech for the full treatment, they've
done miracles on my street bikes.
Then Stage 1 Hot Cams and head porting by APE is next along with a Boysen high flow
water pump kit and a GYT-R or Hinson clutch.
Probably be cheaper to just buy a 300cc 2T, but I enjoy modding my bikes as
much as riding them. And the old steel frame WR is almost perfect for the type of riding I do, fire roads and trails in the Mark Twain National Forest, sand/chat and trails
at St. Joseph ORV park and my buddies 500 acre farm/woods. If all I was riding was rocky single track I'd definitely get a 2T.
