I've read the performance mods and I'm going with the AIS kit right away.

I'm also 6'4". Has anyone set up this bike for a tall rider? I've an 03 and an 04 with Answer top clamps, tall bar mounts, CR HI Bend, Guts Tall Seat Foam and lowered the pegs. Will these tricks work on the 07?

Anyone put an autoclutch in one yet? I don't think this will be any different then the 03 and 04.

Thanks.

Napolean Dynamite, "......lucky!!".

I would bet the mods you did on your older WR will work as well on your new toy. Not sure if the parts can be switched between the different year WR's though.

I put the Renthal R/C high 1 1/8 bars with taller risers and fastway Lo-boy
pegs. You have to remove the bottom peg mount bolts and counter sink
the holes and purchase 2 new bolts from fastway ($11.00 shipped)
This gives you alot of room.

I got it. I hope I can make it work. It sure is small. I might have a little used 07 for sale.

Get the TT AIS kit, the JD Jetting Kit, a 48 pilot and a 40 leak jet, and cut the throttle stop yourself. It's more expensive than just buying the GYT-R kit, but it's worth it, IMHO :applause:...SC

I am 6'3" and found the 07 bike so far at the right height, but then again its been `15 years since I last rode a bike. I haven't done any mods as I want to get used to riding again then work my way through them. So far the bike is pretty fun, but I can't wait to do the mods to get some more power out of it.

Scotts performance for the risers. I think GYTR has so too.

Hi Spokes, Im getting my 07 WR450 on Fri. also. As I sat on the bike the other day I thought it was a little tall for me,Im 5ft 10.The dealer said it could be lowered.I wondered if anyone may have set the bike lower ?Also, I wanted to ask you about tearing the bike down for grease and lube,have you done that for your other WRs ? Many have posted here that it is nessasary. Ive wondered why Yamaha would sell these bikes that way ? bob

Hey Bob, they all come from the factory like that, unfortunately.
You should definitely tear it down. You will see once you get in there
that it is needed. It's not too bad of a job anyway.
