I had a 2002 WR426, and now I have the 2005, and don't know if you still have to cut the grey wire. Where is the grew wire located if I do need to cut it? I have my 05 WR450 Street legal in California so I am not doing to bad in that department, but I don't know about the grey wire thing.

Yes it does. I did it to mine. The harness is located under the seat.

:thumbsup: :thumbsup: :bonk:
They've always been under the tank along the frame.
You have to pull the seat to get there, but that's where it's been.

CDI... in front of the tank on the stem. I'm not sure where it goes, because it's only connected to a logic ground.

Yes it does, but don't cut it just unplug it. The coupling looks like there are several areas holding it it, but if you look close the side towards the front is actually more in the middle and is only held by one clip. It pops right out. Simply unplug the coupling, and then use a awl or small screw driver to release the pin. When you look down inside the pin you will see a small plastic clip holding it in. It looks like you should push the plastic towards the pin, but actually pry it away from the pin and pull on the wire. It will slide right out including the seal. I then used silicone after plugging it back in because it will get pushed out as you plug it back in due to a air tight plug. Tape up the grey wire and you are good to go.
