Then I read one thread saying that with the wire disconnected to be careful because the rev limiter no longer works.
Can anyone confirm for sure if this is true?

Another confirmation here on the rev limiter myth. Although, in some cases it has caused the bike to transport the rider to the magical land of Narnia where they are crowned Queen of the Sugarplum Fairies in the castle of the Gumdrop Forrest...I love old wive's tales, don't you ...SC
Ah, you ruined it. I was going to contact "Mythbusters" from the Discovery Channel to check into it!

Do You Have To Cut It On The 03- 05 Wr450's Also??

Under the tank, 6 pin socket-pull it apart. The gray wire is in the center location in the socket assembly. Use a paper clip to realease the terminal, fold it back and taped it up.

I also read where the grey wire is only a feature on US bikes. Can anyone confirm if my Australian 2001 WR400 has a grey wire that needs cutting?
I'v heard from an australian that your wr and also the european models have yzf mapping without cutting the gray wire but I'm not sure. On my year 2004 the gray wire is connected to the cdi unit but I havent "followed" it til the other end so I dont know if its connected to ground or not
If anybody know for sure please let us know.
