Also, if you pulled the grey wire, maybe hook it back up, that should also shift your power a little towards the low end.
Lastly, try the biggest, gnarliest back tire you can stuff on there. More hookup will promote lower rpm grunt instead of wheelspin letting you get up "on the cam".

Also, find someone here with a WR450 or 426 that's not too far from you, and hook up with them for a ride. You shouldn't have too much trouble conning them into letting you try their bike. Remember, it's pretty much the exact same engine, just tuned differently. You can fix that if you want, for cheap-o!
Where do you live?

A flywheel weight will also mellow the bike out as would a WR exhaust. You could also get a PMB end cap and install the quiet tip to do the same thing.
You could also try a Power Now insert to help withthe low end as well.

This is the cheap and easy fix to see if you like the WR power delivery better. Also learn the starting drill and absolutely get your jetting right for your riding style and area. If the jetting is right the bike is a first or second kick starter everytime. Good luck WR Dave.
Before buying a WR450 cam, I'd just take your stock cam and change it to WR timing since that's free. That way, you'll have an idea if it does what you want without spending any $$.
