I have the oem set up off my 16 along with the gytr tuner. Is there any value in that? Is this something a person with a 14-15 might want to upgrade to? Also wondering the same for the head and cams and tb.

I know there's a forsale section but just wondering if it's worth my time

Mods can delete if needed

I would rather control the launch myself, thanks, so no value to me.  Might find someone, though.

I felt the same way until running the launch control, it's actually pretty cool map. The key is just shifting out of it fast enough to get back to power mode.
I can see why people would want it after trying it.

Gytr head/ not sure on the cams. I'll play with a few different ones.
R&d throttle body.
Vortex ecu.
Yoshimara full exhuast.


Nothing crazy. Just playing around with the motor

Well installed all the goodies and got the vortex all dialed in. The bike defiantly rips now. I haven't dynoed it yet but the power is there. I have a trip to the dunes for New Years that will be a good test on the set up with the gytr cams. After I will swap the 16 cams back into it and see what she dose.

The gytr head is actually a very nice head. On the yfzr quads the head isn't all that but on this yz I really am pleased with the product. I'm curious to the specs on the gytr cams. I can't seem to find them anywhere. I may just send them to a buddy to get checked if all else fails. As for the genius tb that thing is a work of art. Dean really makes a nice product.

Yea they don't list the GYTR cam specs. Some have rumored it to be a web cam.

Did it take much dialing in to run with the Vortex. Is the fuel and ignition adjustable with a iPhone and wi fi.

Dean sent me a map for the tb , I just had to load it for the most part. I did take a bit of fuel out of the map to lean it out but it's pretty close from dean. I just have to play with maps its in my nature. But all in all the map is prob spot on. I don't have high compression piston so that's why I leaned mine out a tad.

No the vortex at this point requires a laptop in order to adjust the software. It's pretty complex in comparison to the systems that work off apps. I've seen the phone style on turbo rzrs and this is far more advanced than just the basics.

Most people wouldn't need to adjust the ecu other than the manual trim switches. I just want mine set up so I can run oxy fuel mr12 if I decide to.

So after playing with the tune for a bit I picked up a lot of power from off idle to about 8k. Huge power for a 450based bike. I'm really impressed with this throttle body and vortex set up. By far the best improvement for the money on a 450based bike I've seen. The ride ability and power transfer is amazing.

I would suggest this for all kinds of riding.

Those are the components that I would to use as well. Are you using the software from Vortex to tune it on your computer?

Yea cuz I didn't know dean gave me 8 maps.
Once I tuned one of them for my set up I found out that dean gave me 8 different fuel maps.

One of his maps is basically identical to what I made up.

The bike starts first few kicks when cold out 20 degrees
Then once warm starts first kick.

So as to not be confused you are using the R&D Genius billet fuel injection and it's not James Dean jetting is it?

So did R&D work out the settings of the vortex?

I am going to do a new WR450 so I may have to bug Vortex to see when they come out with a ECU for the new bikes.

Yeah sorry. I get lazy when typing on my phone.
R&d billet throttle body.

Dean from R&D has his own maps for his product. They are spot on for the most part.


I thought the price was high to at first but the product says other. It's honestly a work of art. He has some serious time into them and no corners cut.

The power from idle to 8k is crazy now. I never imagined it to be as good as claimed until I tuned it in.
