I have the 05 450 and cut the wire, removed snorkels, remove throttle stop and pipe insert, etc. Also, installed power now valve between air box and carb, Boysen accelerator pump cover and the zip tie fuel screw. Rejetted the carb (I believe it is now a 165 or 170 main (up 5 from stock) and a 48 pilot jet. The horsepower is great and the zip tie fuel screw makes fine tuning at different altitudes very easy. I've heard that the leo vance pipe makes it even snappier all the way around. Even better than the W2

What is your altitude up there in John Denver Country?

Just a guess, they call it the mile high city, so around 5200 ft? :banghead:

OK let me rephrase that. What elevation do you ride is what I am saying? Yes the city of Denver is 5200 but there are places 20 minutes away where lots of people ride up to and above 10,000. I was born in utah and spend most ime at 4500-5000 feet but most of the riding is up to 9000 feet or higher. So is he riding around town at 5200 feet (I doubt it). My question for those who have a brain and can read between the lines is "what is the altitude you are RIDING at?" So thanks for the smart ass answer but it really is not helpful considereing we still don't know what elevation he is riding at.

One week ago mine was bone stock- Kinda like riding a Hoover
Add JD jetting, quick shot, YZ throttle stop, as well as A big gun evo x, I have not messed with the airbox yet ( Plan to do some good streams ), Now twist the wrist and watch the sky appear!!!! I have not done the gray wire yet either, Attempting to figure out if this will hurt more then help with 91 oct pump gas???? If you still want more lower the counter to a 13- I am doing that for tight trails in the small mountains in Northern California.

I didnt think about the logistics of your question :banghead: . I didnt mean for it to come out that way. I should have known what you were getting at, as I have the same elevation changes here in Montana. My bad. :lol: I do have a brain however and I ride anything from 3200 ft to 10,000 ft and I never feel 'gutless' with no changes between rides. Sometimes I think the whole altitude thing is way overplayed, thats all. :banghead: Some RIDES start at 4500 ft and go all the way to 10,000+ ft. I guess I have a jetting combo that works good for most of the situations I ride in. I just wish I knew what it was. My dealer set it up for me when I got the bike, I will have to look into it.

I did all the free mods too, but the greatest performance increase came from re-jetting. Bone stock the WR uses a 165 main, 45 pilot, and an 80 pilot air jet. My riding elevation varies in the low thousands (1500 ~ 3000 feet) so I re-jetted to the following: 168 main, 48 pilot, stock paj (but changing to 100 soon) and a Zip-Ty Fuel Screw. I didn't touch the needle position. These changes made a huge difference in my throttle response and overall performance. Plus, the jets cost about $3 bucks each so it's a cheap upgrade.

Hey Black n Blue, sorry I replied with a bad attitude thanks for not taking offense. I agree Jetting is a comprimise most of the time getting it close to the conditions that are always changing. Take care bro.
