More power.....yeah baby!
Seriously though, perhaps you should consider the rekluse clutch.

and who if anyone makes them for 04 wr450?
hey you mention flywheel weights my bike bike is about matched to my size (6'4" 290lbs ) as far as hp and handling character,but iv'e had some stalling issues in tight uphill turns where slipping the clutch is difficult its even geared 13/52 so i was wondering if a little more flywheel might do the trick and how much more than stock can you go without too much drag?

XRs, DRZs, etc. are we?). After riding a YZ450 I couldn't stop thinking about what I could do to enhance the snap. Anyway, I got tired of my buddies pulling away from me on the track and decided to do something about it. I pulled my flywheel and had 2.6 oz. machined off the outer diameter surface. Now were talking. She comes on much stronger down low. I also am running a stock pipe off a 98 YZ400. I have had no stalling problems and the bike clearly accelerates quicker (can't say it pulls my arms out of their sockets though, the unplugged stock configuration sure didn't). In the woods the bark is much stronger making lofting the front end over downed trees or other obstacles much easier (in the woods I run a FMF Q). I also put a 13 tooth chainwheel upfront. At the end of the day....I still want more power!!

Hey, I was out of line to call it a crock to want more power. I have certainly been guilty of this on practically all of my machines. The one exception has been my WR450F after getting it uncorked and properly jetted. The versatility of this bike makes it practical for a wide variety of applications. Who am I to criticize another for wanting to modify for their uses. I apologize to the original poster. I admit, I am a hypocrit and got called on it.
Got that right you shouldn't be so quick to bag others out for wanting more grunt just because you don't. Pull your skirt back up and think about what you post . Just kiddin 490cc that would be alot of grunt
