I have an '06 WR 450 Planned mods are as follows :

The basics to make it breath right , AIS Removal , Re-Jet , New Pipe , Grey wire and air filter.

I was wondering if a rear sprocket change would be another good small mod , and change. Like not any teeth up or down , just different material ?

Any other small mods I missed would be great also. I am doing all this not this but next weekend. ( Well the shop is doing it , since I am a hack ).

Thanks guys.

if your not going up or down there is no need to change the stock rear sproket. if you plan on doing long fire roads and what then i would say go up on the front sproket one tooth. its cheaper and you can adjust the chain easier.

as for the other mods your right on track. if money is an issure, do it your self its not hard. other then that enjoy :bonk:

Yah BigCoopDawg I do alot of everything out here so changing the teeth is not fer me.

I am at least gonna replace the chain then , because for the 1st part of the winter it had to be stored outside and the chain is completely rusty heh.

and trust me I can't do any mods myself , money is not an issue and it has to be serviced anyways so they said they can do most of the mods at the same time and save me money.

I thought I read somewhere that even just changing the material of the sprocket out back would give some more response and power.

Thanks again guys.

If you are going to throw out that existing chain, I'll take it off your hands. I am sure that a little TLC and that chain will be nice and shiniy again.
As long as there aren't any kinks in it.

I am sure something could be arranged for the chain , no kinks it's fine other then the fact that I don't have the time or the effort to clean it up again.

Hey CrookedCop, where in Alberta are you at? I'm in Sherwood Park.

I'm always looking for people to ride with. :bonk:

CrookedCop, definitely give me a heads up when you will be coming down. There are a couple of so-so riding areas not too far from here.

Cheers.
