I have ridden and raced motorcycles (primarily dirt bikes) since I was 6 years old. I sold my last bike when my daughter was born 14 years ago.
After years of pestering and prodding, my wifey finally relented and agreed that a dirt bike would be cool. After a 2-week search, the Yamaha dealership finally received an '07 WR450, put it together, filled it with fluids and handed me the bike and manual.
I am a happy man.
I've completed the very basics as far as de-restricting goes...throttle stop, AIS removal, airbox horn removal.
I've been reading all I can on carb adjustments after making these changes and I'm looking at the GYTR 96db muffler. I'm familiar with this forum format and I'm currently working my way through the sticky posts.
I'd appreciate any advice you can give on next steps and I'd enjoy getting together for some rides. I live in northwest Charlotte (Mountain Island Lake) and have not ridden any of the parks/trails in the area.

I've been sweating the carb access to install a new adjustable needle and new pilot jet.
After I finish the re-jetting and button it back up...I'll ride for a while and sort out the suspension.
Wallet Raper...aren't they all?

I have looked at the web sites and read all the posts for the various riding spots you've mentioned and I can't wait to try them out. Has anyone here ridden Spencer Mountain Riding Area in Gastonia? Any positive feedback?
You'll know it's me if you see me pull into a park, unload my shinny new bike and put on my shinny new gear...I'm roost bait for sure!
