just bought a 03 wr 450, street legal, with Baja designs dash and signal kit. absolutely love the bike, getting off a 00' ttr 225 so its a huge upgrade, has plenty of snot for me on a flat trail but is still manageable for my skill level in the woods, I feel its the perfect bike for me. but I have a couple questions about it for folks who know more about the bigger bikes.
is it true that these are just noisy motors? mine has a bit of top end noise at idle, but runs great when moving.
how hot is this thing supposed to run? hot much heat could it tolerate before your getting hard on everything? has never gotten hot enough to boil or have any rideability issues or anything but you can really notice the heat between your legs. is this normal for this bike?
