I guess you got one of the bad ones. You know that they say about Yamaha's manufatured on Mondays. I guess yours was one the them.
I tell you what I live in Texas and I will give you $500 and even come and pick it up from you.
That is a great offer. Man if it were me I would write it off as a loss and take the $500.
Do the mods and get back with us.

Where do you buy this kit?
I did the Yamaha AIS removal kit (part # GYT-5TJ93-69) which gives you the YZ throttle stop, new needle, 48 pilot jet, and gives you the instructions on setting the fuel screw, pulling the exhaust restrictor, removing the air box restrictor, and pulling the grey wire from the CDI. This kit was only about $30.

I have done all the free mods and a little more. Mine runs great. I have the TT ais removal kit, Zip-ty fuel screw, JD kit and a 13T front sprocket on the way from TT. I hope it rips harder when I'm done.

Also, I asked the service department bike prep guy if the throttle stop had been changed to the YZ length during bike prep, the day I took delivery of my 2006 WR. He told me that they would never assume the liability of changing out the throttle stop before customer delivery. When I attempted to change the throttle stop, I found that it had been cut to the correct YZ length.

I just purchased a new 05 WR450 today. Got it home, took it for a ride and needless to say I am VERY disappointed. This stock bike is a pig. After all of the posts and reviews that I have read, the WR is suppose to flat out rip. My dads DRZ400 will kill this thing. I was seriously considering the Honda 450X and maybe should have gone that route instead. With that said, just how big of difference is there when the throttle stop is removed, the grey wire cut, etc? Do all of the bike testers that review these things for the magazines do the mods so they can compare it to other bikes? Because, if this is it, I've got a dud and I will go get the 450X. Any input will be greatly appreciated.
Pull out that stupid silencer in the exhaust and that will somewhat getting you going and cut the throttle stop. Makes a huge differance!
