Centurion Yamaha in South Africa told me today the Wr450's are landing +-30 november and should take delivery on 6th December. Even gave me the ships name as I have been bugging him non stop.

Its the way the bike carries its wieght that matters and the new ones are 'supposed' to feel 20 lbs lighter. just like when the YZ's got the AL frames.


if they can lower the way the weight is carried, it seems to me they could have a real winner. just looking at the gas tank on the gf's wr250, it seems there's alot of room to move that lower (might not be the same on the 450).

i won't be looking for another bike til next year sometime anyway, so you guys will have plenty of time to check out the 07 wr's for me.

I think the day to day adjustments (fuel screw,pj & mj) will be the same as on the steel frame bikes. If you are changing needles then you have to remove the carb the same as before, the Honda guys got used to it and so will we. WR Dave.

If they are not there on the 06th we will have to get a chopper and go find that ship. The wait has been too long.

In this pic, the rear fender sticker says WR450. The starter on the bike in this photo is at the rear of the engine, my 2004 wr450 also has the starter under the carb. Musta'h been a 250?

You Lucky boy....

what was the Part number for your FMF...Price etc etc ....

They have none listed but I'm guessing that the 06 Pipes will fit, just worried about the slimmer Headers, but if you have a full system that won't matter, I just want the end Can, to stock headers...

Thanks in Advance
