ya thats what i was thinking why would someone open the motor up and not know about the free mods doesnt make sense. how is the yz timing compared to wr? i need to kick my cousins a%% on a cr250 im doing the throttle stop and jetting tomorrow but might change the timing too
YZ timing: I think it depends on what kind of riding you do and where you ride. In the more open areas I like the timing of the YZ better. In really tight woods riding I'm not sure there is really an advantage. I was learning when I had the bike so not sure I did everything the right way in the right order. But, here is what I did. I did the YZ timing first. Whoa, that was fun. The bike had a hit like you wouldn't believe. But, in the woods I wanted less wheel spin and more grunt. Plus, the bike would stall pretty easy if you got tired or lazy. So, I added the flywheel weight. That really helped a lot. I could lug the thing up nasty technical stuff. I wound up setting the bike up mostly for tight woods riding. I left the YZ timing and added a little lower gearing. I did the timing thing pretty early on so don't really remember what stock WR timing was like. But what I do know, is the bike ROCKS! I am just getting back into it after riding a KTM 520 for the last two years. My WR is not faster but it is plenty fast enough for the woods for which it was set up. I am having a blast with it.
