Can you put a grey wire jumper on the 2006 YZ450F's? Going woods riding this weekend and thought it would be nice to have. :thumbsup: :bonk:

Grey wire enables a second ignition map so the poor WR will run with all the ridicules plugs and crap that come on it. Your YZ doesn't have this map. Probably wouldn't run with it any way.

You might try one of those new throttle barrels with a different cam on it. Supposed to make smaller throttle openings less abrupt(not sure how to explain it, it's early). Can't remember who makes them. Anyone?

My 02.... it's a 450, run it a gear higher and let that torque work for you.

What are you trying to do? Make the power easier to ride? The 06 has the smoothest power spread and is so easy to ride why would you mess with it? At the most play with gearing like mtrdrms suggests.

I put a 12-50 gearing combo on mine, works great. Maybe try something like that.

Haven't tried one, but it looks promising.

I'm not worried about the power the bike puts out. My buddies are going woods riding this weekend and it is tight and nasty. Just thought it would be nice to have a little softer power curve without spending to much money on sprockets and such. Thanks for the input though.

If you are going to ride a 06 450f in the woods tomorrow, you better get to work. My suggestion...
