I recently purchased a 04 wr 450 and am new to "modification" world, in the past i gassed 'em up and rode. Anyone know any links to photos and desciptions of the wr throttle stop mod. I would like to try to cut the current throttle stop without having to just go to the dealer to buy a yz throttle stop!

You can search for the free mods links. The throttle stop is a screw, you can cut yours but it is only a few bucks from the dealer.

Try checking out www.thumperfaq.com
You will find very detailed instructions there, but the length mentioned is for the 250. Better check around about the correct length for your 4xx.

Also, try Motoman393's site, it has the goods for the 4XX.

I've researched this same issue a few months ago. If Yamaha would stock the part that would be a no brainer...but they don't. I found from different sources that the amount to cut off varied from about 9mm to 12mm. When I did mine it came out to about 11mm and I've had no problems. Do not just cut off the smooth part of the bolt because this allows the slide to come up too far and will damage the carb when and if you ever take it about.

Just my .02

The correct length is listed in a service bulletin, just ask your dealer....it's better than guessing or asking your buddy!

How about just getting a stock YZ throttle stop? Or screw whatever it's called. That is what I did for my O1WR426 no need for all this cutting if its already been done.

You're right, you could do that. But, the answer lies in why does anybody do their own mods? To save the money you would have paid the dealer? To save time on waiting on a dealer to stock a part? Or, and most important, to get you in the garage and away from the old lady? :)
