2012 WR450 redline
Posted July 13, 2014 - 09:37 PM
I heard all sorts from 10000 to 11000, personally I consider that a little high for a single, so any info would be greatly received and appreciated.

WOW 11,500 !! seems bloody high to me, but thank you for the info.

Yamaha's old 250f was 13,500!!! I'm not sure if the new one is higher or not. Yes, these modern engines spin some serious RPM's!!!

Why the hell are you hitting the rev limiter?
Don't you like the valves in the inside of the motor?
You should google 'valve float' and then see if you can bring your self to sit there and hit the rev limiter again......
Sounds like you don't have the sensor wire wraped tight enough

I'm not sure of the redline.
I can tell you my 2014 wr450 seems quite happy when I'm 'flogging' the guts out of it. I'm a previous low end torquer, so anything about 1/2 throttle seems high.

It'll rev plenty. For some reason I thought the limiter was 12.5K on the 2012 WR. I hit the limiter sometimes but never intentionally. I find the tuned/derestricted otherwise bone stock motor absolutely superb. I'm extremely happy with it. Like Nuklhed my WR never complains.

I hit it once when I missed a shift. I don't shift anywhere near redline. Maybe if I had YZ cams.
