But you did find the change to YZ timing worth the time.....or would you just do the gray wire?

I had to chuckle when i reviewed all the gushing, slobbering posts about the benefits of this change for other riders.

Micheal, as far as the YZ timing: It depends what type of rider you are as to whether or not WR vs. YZ cam timing is for you. I prefer the most hit I can get from the powerband. I typically ride my WR in higher rpm's. I also am very used to my other bike which is a YZF426, which I race strictly on motocross tracks. I have tried to get the WR power delivery to mimic the YZF power delivery as much as possible. For more info on the effects of WR's that are YZF cam timed, you may want to start another post. Or if you have or know someone that has done the modification ask them to let you ride their bike.

Next time your in the woods with your WR whack the throttle open in the mid range, see if you got rid of the hesitations, that most of us are experiencing. Again if you are a recreational woods rider, this "Grey Wire" mod may not seem noticeable. If you are a fast, aggressive (ride at 7000-10000rpm)rider, this mod will make your WR seem like the power delivery is much more linear, w/o any more hesitation (as long as your bike is jetted correctly w/correct air/fuel screw position).
Also, have a beer or 3 for me, I got to race tomarrow!

I ride from 6k to pinned. The only time I notice the difference is in those high revs. It does rev smoother and a LITTLE quicker. I think my expectations may have been a little higher due to the hype buildup.
