I live in Victoria Australia, and i own a 01 WR426. i want to know what i can do to it to make it a lethal machine. it is all stock except the pipe, which is a Barretts.
Should i do the yz cam & timing thing ?
What sizes should the jets be ?
Should i get a kit for the carby ?
What octane fuel should i be using ?

-jets depend on the temp and elevating where you live
-yes, buy a JD jet kit
-is AUS you need to run 95 oct!

i have done that mod on my 400 and love it, although the true benefit of a wr is not to spin but to grip, for which the yz style power will tend to spin sooner.
why complicate things with a jd jet kit when you can get what you need from your local yamaha stealer and stay original and genuine?
open up the airbox, it'll sound faster.
many will say that $ are better spent in suspension land.
unless you find that your 426 is underpowered( i always thought the 426 was an animal already) why comprimise reliability and overall ground speed for the sake of winning the occaisional drag.?
hope that helps

Are these kits easy to install ?
If i do the YZ timing thing, could i maybe gear it differently to compensate ? - say a 48/14 ?
