just got back from a two day trip to baja with a group of 50 guys it was awesome. there is only one thing i must say about the wr it is a beast i loved riding my new bike. it was the first time i road it with the free mods and boy let me tell you this bike kicked butt

before the trip i did the following:

Acerbis 3.4 tank
GYT-R Skid plate
Unabiker Radiator Guards
15T Front Sproket
Heavy Duty 4M Tires
Suspension Done
PMB Insert
JD Jet Kit
Grey Wire
Air Box Mod

You sure had your bike prepared with the right mods! The WR450 is the weapon of choice for the Baja! Stone cold reliable! :lame: It can handle miles and miles of sand without wearing you out like the twitchier handling bikes. :thumbsup:

Well you have all the right parts on it. I been using mine to pre run for a RECORD race. the only thing i would change is the gearing, running 15/50 now think I'll try 15/47.
Hot tip somebody gave me was to swap that stock bulb to a 20% brighter made a difference when your trying to look for Mike's or the old tug boat in the dark.
