i wouldn't hold it wide open for long but it won't hurt it to see what it's got. just kinda baby it and shift it sooner than normal for a little while.
doing the changes in stages really opens up your eyes to how much a little change can make so much difference in power. when i got mine new it was slower than my old 125. with the throttle stop cut it was as fast, and with the yz timing it was in the 250 zone. now with a pipe and jetting it will spank a 250.
hey, did i ever tell you guys about the time i beat a guy on a kx 500 down a 1/8 mile drag strip with my buddies 99WR400 with yz timing and a white brothers pipe? we were neck and neck but i crossed first!! i think he was kinda scared !!!!!

Glad to help. The two bikes I had worked on last Sunday....one of the owners posted here about what a dog the bike was and he wanted to sell it.
It turns out he lives near me and drove up, with his buddies stock 426. I really wanted him to see what some minor work (throttle stop, baffle and air box lid) could do for the performance. I can't wait till he rides his. I should definetly be a eye opener
