Important: Grey Wire test on a WR426 test?

Mike, you were right. Removing the grey wire was a small improvement in comparison to jetting changes. Midrange power seems a little stronger.

Check your wiring diagram, my Australin model 01 wr426 has the grey wire and as far as I know the Canadian and Australian models are the same. I will disconnect mine for a ride on monday ( public holiday in the colonies for her Majesty's birthday ).
I'll keep you posted.
Damn the torpedoes full steam ahead
Very sorry Olson, I goofed. we don't have the grey wire. the wire is capped at the conector. But if I had the wire, I would disconnect it. My bike runs like a clock and have always wondered why the American models had trouble with jetting, fouling plugs and being hard to start. Sounds like the grey wire might be responsible.

The limiter still works on the non USA bikes, so why wouldn't it? I wouldn't think any of the YZF's would have this wire, only the WRF's.

I did, about a week ago, put an experimental insert in and ride it few times around my course before putting it back to stock. I was alittle disappointed, as the added power was great, but I didn't have time to mess with the jetting alot and was going riding the next day. Although the gray wire fix does not give the same increase as opening the exhaust, I think it is a good middle ground for those of use that like the quietness of stock.

if your going to test, test properly. i'm suprised so many people have gone for a quick thrash & said it's a big improvement.
give up at least a whole morning & do justice to your back-to-back testing.
THAT GOES FOR ALL OF YOU!
for &%$#@!s sake we (you) look silly enough as it is given that it's only taken four years for this mod to be mentioned! i don't think you ought to crow about this one in the bar lads-do you!!!
so let's take it nice & slow & get it right. it's great to hear of yet another all win/no lose , mod if it works.
