Righto so the much awaited new WR450f has arrived so show us what you got, the mods you have done, tips & tricks.

 

I got mine a few weeks back i plan on racing off-road with it but until the races come around I'm racing some MX on it and coming from a YZ450f its not that noticeable with the extra weight.

 

Mods i have done so far;

 

Remove the foam and kettle from the air box.

 

Full FMF/GYTR Ti muffler and SS header lets it breathe i didn't even bother to start it with that pee shooter on it.

 

Front and rear Excel wheels and hubs blue hubs and nipples black rims, I'm hard on wheels I don't even bother with stock wheels just throw them back on when i sell the bike and it looks good.

 

270mm GYTR/Braking front rotor its a really nice feel and the brakes are comparable to my 14 KTM450SXf

 

Kroozetune 30mm lowering link really smooth's out the rear end I'm still working on it tho but love it over the stocko.

 

GYTR high seat gives me better body position with the stock seat and the lowering link it felt really cramped.

 

GYTR sprockets 14/50 think I'll go a 15/50 so i can hold second longer doing MX 

 

Rear 112mm race sag and i cant remember clicker settings once it bedded in I'll send it off and get it tuned, its still not right now.

 

Obvioulsy removed all the speedo gear light etc. for doing MX.

 

Tip if you put a header on it you need to feed it in from the right side, have to take the guard off the starter motor so it fits then put hex head bolts back in to bolt it up as you can't get an allen key in there with the FMF header.

My ONLY complaint is that the seat is hard as a rock.

Where did you buy your wheels? That's awesome, by the way.
I've been thinking of converting my '11 over to super moto when I get either a FX or the new WR and was looking at motoxindustries - they are Warp 9 wheels though. Tough to beat Excel.

I got them from motostrano. Fully customizable, love the way they came out. I'm just getting in to supermoto but what I have been told about the warp 9 is not good. I was debating between them and excel. They said spend a little more money get the Excel.

I'm curious what bad news you've heard about the Warp 9's. I just ordered a set and now you've got me nervous.

The KTM guys have been and will be sniffing around, they know Yamaha is killing it and is about to slaughter them in the next few years. If anybody has ridden a 2012-2015 and a 2016 would you kindly post your comparison in this thread? We've been looking for one and I don't really want to start a new thread yet.

I just heard that the rims bend real easy on them. Like I said I don't have experience with them that is what I was told from a couple friends and dealer ships around a my area. After the comments I never did any research on them. I could be completely wrong. Wish you luck with them!

Started off with this box....

 

imagejpeg_4-L.jpg

 

Found out that there was some assembly required....

 

imagejpeg_5.jpg

 

Had the dealer put her all together with the bits and pieces Yamaha thinks it should have....

 

IMG_3060-L.jpg

 

Got it back to my place and shuffled around a few things so I could get the bike up on my lift table and start with the free mods.

Started with pulling the peashooter out of the exhaust. I don't bother with aftermarket pipes because stealth is important where I ride and pulling the peashooter opens up the exhaust but still keeps things around 90dB....

 

WR%20mods%206-L.jpg

 

Now the exhaust gases can escape a little easier.....

 

WR%20mods%205-L.jpg

 

While I was messing with the back of the bike I got rid of those fender reflectors before I impaled myself on them.

Next we moved to the front and pulled the seat and aixbox cover to access the airbox tea kettle.

 

WR%20mods%204-L.jpg

 

Two plastic pins and a screw allows you to remove the rear section of the airbox for better access to the screws.

Pulled all the srews holding the screen and lifted out the screen & tea kettle....

 

WR%20mods%203-L.jpg

 

The rivets holding the tea kettle to the screen are easily removed....

 

WR%20mods%202-L.jpg

 

With the screen re-installed it was time to take a break for substance and refreshment.....

 

WR%20mods%201-L.jpg

 

Once I wandered back out to the garage it was time to take care of the throttle stop. According to my sources at Yamaha Canada you don't need to bother with the YZ throttle stop, just remove the WR throttle stop and then seal off the hole. To remove the throttle stop you will need a Tamperproof T25 torx bit to fit the screw....

 

IMG_3085-L.jpg

 

The proper torx bit and a 1/4 wrench made short work of getting the screw out...

 

IMG_3087-L.jpg

 

A little time with my cutoff wheel and a touch up with the file got the screw ready to go back in. I shortened the throttle stop by 15mm or 1/2 of its length. Put all the plastic parts back on for now.

Just waiting on parts now. The Rekluse should be here very soon followed by the Cyra barkbusters.

Plan on placing an order with Enduro Engineering for the following:

  • Skidplate
  • Radiator Braces
  • Radiator Guards
  • Axle Pull Handles

You beat me to it! :) This is the first one i've seen in motard trim. Still using the stock rotor up front? What gearing are you currently using.?

Yes the rotor and the gearing is still stock. Have to wait a couple paychecks and that will change. I think I'm going to drop the rear sprocket to a 47 or 48, not for sure yet. I have been able to drive it a mile down to road. Going to get the plates today.

Nice. I have a 48t on mine, but i'll be going down to a 45t soon. You may be ok with the 17's and a 47/48t depending on how you ride. Any signs of chain rub with the 160 tire?

This is my first supermoto so I don't know what I should get. I plan on experimenting to fined what I like. Yes there is someImageUploadedByThumper Talk1458835157.066780.jpg ImageUploadedByThumper Talk1458835169.880275.jpg
Also just make sure I have it right. Smaller sprocket = more top end and bigger sprocket= more low end
