Something to remember speed on a bike is mostly rider.

A lot of people are dissappointed initially with their WR when they first get them from the shop, but trust us, after you do the free mods and put an exhuast on that baby it will be like night and day. I have the 03 YZ450 exhuast cam in my 426 and I love it. Some people prefer WR timing, some people prefer YZ timing, it comes down to personal preference. But don't give up on your bike just yet....I think after unplugging that thing you'll be much happier with it.

Open up the airbox and put your new exhaust on it.
For more throttle response, mid and top end power install the yz450 exh. cam.
See my signature!!
I let my buddy on his cr250 build up some steam in 4th gear, (let him get 10 mph on me ) when he's pulling along side me I pin it.He will get 1 bike length ahead of me then I go by him. He's wide open in 5th gear when I'm pegged in 4th,then I grab 5th and wheelie away from him.
I rebuit his motor for him so I know it was a healthy 250.
There's no way he can keep up.
In a drag race I am 8 bike lengths ahead of him before I get in to 5th gear.
I would confidantly state that the only bikes that would be faster or quicker than any of the new big bore 4 strokes(when uncorked) would be a big bore 2 stroke.
Until my wr450, all I rode was CR500's.
A comparison to help my analogy would be that my wr450 stone stock felt like a torquey 125 2 stroke, un corked it feels like a very torquey very very strong 250 2 stroke.
Open her up.uncork that biatch. You'll be happy!!
The only way you would be dissapionted with it after you uncork and get the jetting dialed is if you came off a 500 cc 2 stroke.

I don't feel sorry for you at all as you can't see that your bike has the same motor as the YZ and I think better than the CRF, it's just set up differently. It can be modified to be even more powerful if you want it. My bike runs strong and fast and I haven’t done all the possible mods yet.
