I purchased a 06' WR450F and was wondering if anyone had any info on unplugging my bike. (Air filter box, gray wire, throttle stop, baffle, etc.) I was also wondering if you needed to rejet after making these mods?

just go buy the ais removal kit from yamaha. Best 40 dollars you can spend . It will tell you what you need to know. After that if you have more questions use the search feature for endless supply of info

Suggest you read the sticky's (especially the performance index) - they're cash $$ with loads of info. You'll get a feel for the different directions you can go with your '06 and which is best for you. Good luck

One last question. I'm riding this weekend and there is someone I have to beat. The local shop had to order a throttle stop and I won't get it until next week. Does anyone know the amount to shave off the throttle stop to make it a YZ stop? I read it somewhere awhile back, but can,t remember.

18.3mm from base of bolt head to the end i believe is the measurement of the throttle stop
