05 WR450 :cry: Cant Wait to tweak it and try it out this weekend. I started cracking up when i started it all stock. Sure sounds funny like it doesnt want to run in stock form. the things the have to do to sell bikes in this state (ca.)
What a joke. :cry: I know the bike will run great a scare the &^$^ out of me when i uncork it. I have a 450F quad, it sounded and ran better stock than this thing.And that half throttle..... :cry: .... well glad to join the ranks of the 450's on 2 wheels. see ya out there :cry:

When I first fired up my 04 WR450 it was quieter than the TTr250 I sold to buy it!! It sound like a pent up lawn mower. Uncorked the bike is a bad a$$!! Yoiu are gonna be in for a wonderful treat!

Congrats! You'll be real happy with it. Start with the throttle stop and jetting. Damn things are WAY to lean.
