What's been done to the bike? You should make sure all the free mods are done and if you want it to snap to attention better, do the YZ timing as well.
The other thing is the WR gearing is super low in 1st gear. If you are drag racing someone or want to get out of the hole quick, try a 2nd gear start. Gearing it too high is going to make larger gaps in the gear box so it will be harder to accelerate quickly in the upper gears.

I'll also check the list of free mods on thumperfaq. I know that a few have been done by the previous owner but I'm sure that not all of them have been done.
Thanks again for your advice.

A friend just gave me a second paddle tire which is significantly wider and has 10 paddles. I'm going to mount that tire to a second rim arriving in the next couple of days. Then I'll take both wheels with me so I can compare the two tires side by side. Although, that won't be for a couple of weeks because I'm heading out of town for a week.
The truth is I'm very happy with how the bike is hooking up now using second gear starts. But I can't help but experiment with different set-ups. It's in my nature to tinker and play around.
