Your bike is probably already uncorked. You got a pipe, just look at the airbox.

I have the same bike and I love it. I ride tight stuff so I added the Rekluse clutch to avoid stalling and the 03 yz450 ex cam to give it auto decompress with a little more zip down low. The stock pipe flows pretty well once your pull the pea shooter out of it.
Just bought a 2002 WR426. I had a xr650r before and uncorked it, jetted, piped etc. What do I do to the WR? It already has a white bros exaust w/ jet kit. Does it need to be Un-corked as well? Any feedback and maintenance tips would be greatly appreciated!!!

If not it may need a new plug.
I dont even have to get my ass off the seat to start mine.

Skimmed and flowed head
Full Acropovic exhaust
WR450F exhaust cam
From cold: Choke out, goes 1st kick
Warm: No choke, goes 1st kick
When i banged it into the floor riding MX: Hot start out, no choke: 1st kick, push hot start straight in.
The bike is the first for stroke i've owned with a kicker only, and it's so easy to live with. I just boot it once, and she fires straight up all the time.
I can only imagine there's a jetting problem if it doesn't run straight off the bat every time.

Since you can start it (easily) when it's cold, does it idle normally when warmed up? Reason being is the idle setting can affect the hot starting if the idle is set too low.
When my '02 is warm it only takes one smooth kick to fire it up. It's very much like your old XR650R. Just do not give it any throttle at all. Once you're at TDC, pull in the decomp lever and push the kickstarter down about 1"-2" past TDC, release the lever and the kickstarter, then give it a smooth steady kick.
If somehow you end up flooding a warm engine, do the 10-12 kick clean out drill and then use the same technique as above. Good luck. You'll get it down.
