Buying New 07' WR450F!
Posted July 23, 2006 - 01:30 AM
I couldn't stand being without a bike, I bought the last '06 WR450F here in town. I still have money down on the '07. If I can afford it also, I might keep it or sell it after I get it. Time will tell. Theres at least 3 months here left of riding, and watching everyone else ride, drove me nuts. I tried to post photos, but it won't let me.

Thanks for the info. Bike is supposed to be here in November also, or first week of December. Living in Alaska,everything and anything takes more time to get items once in a while. I've ben w/o a bike for 1 1/2 years. I bought a WR450f cause of that magic button and I've riden one also. I was very impressed with what the WR450f I rode, now mine will finally be here in a few months. Oh yeah, I had to buy the wife a new 4x4 wheeler before I picked up my new bike, gave it to her last night, shes happy she has a ride of her own now, but is still asking me, how much is your new bike!? haha.....
Engine oil is now no longer in the chassis above the motor, oil amount has been reduced and is stored lower down to lower centre of gravity with a 720cc oil tank at front of motor thus removing the need for all the oil piping.

I think you will find that they will just use the one for the '06 YZ450.
I called FMF today about exhaust system. They said I should be able to buy new set up by Christmas or maybe a bit sooner. Going with the Power Bomb and Q2 muffler. They're getting the WR's next week for testing is what I was told. Man, now how cool of a job would that be to have!? Thanks for the info. peter francis.......
So, in reality, you can go out and buy a pipe for it right now!!!

Yeah, the '06 YZ alloy frame!!! Guarenteed the '03 - '06 WR pipes won't fit!
I spoke with the Yamaha dealer here,they seen the new line up in Nevada last month though, and were very impressed. Therefore the pipe may not bolt up to the rear like '03 to '06 styles. The motor being at a different angle as well. FMF said that the header will be redesighend as well. It's sort of a must, unfortunately. So, me buying a new muffler isn't a very good idea just yet, as bad as I want to buy everything for the bike right now, and install them durring christmas break. I'm gonna have to wait til all dealers start to sell parts for '07 bikes.
