Keeping the bike stock til you get used to it then doing the free mods when you find yourself wishing for more power is a good approach if ya havent been on a high performance dirt bike before. Even in stock form the 450 will get that front tire up before ya know it so watch yourself.
Glad to hear your son's enjoying his new bike... you guys will have alot of fun on your new blue bikes

You bought a great bike but be careful and take time to learn off road skills...many street techniques cross over but many do not. Hill climbing is one that will take practice. Your wr has enough juice to get you up most anything but it can also get you in trouble FAST. Take your time...start out slow...and have an experianced dirt rider give you the basics. Trust me!

My 10 year old son also rode a XR100 for the first time...We had a blast.

Bye the way she has very tame controllable power also that shouldn't scare you too much..........but it's there when you need/want it.
Excellent way of putting it. The WR450 makes all kinds of power and will do pretty much anything, but the beautiful thing about this bike is that power only comes on when you ask it to. If you want a tame bike to putt around on, it'll gladly do that, if you want a bike to scream up a gnarly hillside, it'll gladly do that too
It amazed me that something with so much power was so manageable.

Too bad my kids had to watch me dump and break a rib last weekend. Now they have more proof that my wife is right: dad is a dumba$$.
