I beg to differ! I put Yamaha stickers on a Honda once and gained 12.34 HP at the back wheel!:cry:

That is absurd!! You can gain no less than 15 horsepower by adding stickers!! However, I put a Honda sticker on a Yamaha and it lost 15 horsepower!

I put a NASCAR sticker on my WR450 and woke up with a mullet.

The sad thing is, I know people who like NASCAR with mullets.... In 2005...

OK My brother had his 04 Crf 450 up to about 90. Will the 04 WR 450F beat the Crf. I havent had it up to top speed yet. I am waiting till I get to a dry lake bed again.

I just looked at my GPS from last weekends ride, while racing my friend on his 525 on an uphill graded road my 05 was clocked at a dismal 87.5 :cry: He was 2mph faster over and over again... I was pinned in a tuck...

103 is just crazy!!!!! I can't seem to find 5th gear much on the trail as it is!!!!! I would think 70's would be a closer top speed, but then again I'm just guessing.

My WR400F Will Do 65 MPH In 4TH Gear! It Will Do At Least 90 MPH! :)

Is the stock setup at 15/52 on a '05 WR450? From the first couple of posts it looks like 15/50 is a good choice for more top end (for high speed desert riding)? Will the stock chain still work with this combo? Thanks.

15/50 , 14/50 & 13/50 all work with 114 links of chain. Easy to change back and forth for riding different trails & conditions. :)

Contrary to popular belief, stickers are not necessary for motorcycle operation. :)

Stickers make it go fast... There is fast, and then there is "Sticker Fast!"
