WR 450 07-08 questions
Posted July 17, 2007 - 09:46 AM
I have some questions about what I am getting into.
1. Carb: The GTYR kit comes with jets. Does the carb have a fixed needle? Does the GTYR kit come with an adjustable needle?
Has anyone put a YZ needle in the WR carb?
Is there a JD jetting kit for the 07?
Is all of this jetting worht it? or should I get another KTM that did not require any jetting?
2. Does the YZ plastics fit the WR?
3. What aftermarket tanks fit?
4. Does the 07 (08) have the grey wire? If so where is it located.

Your response is appreciated. I note that there is some info on this; however, it is not overly clear. In the past, I enjoyed my WRs, BUT it usually takes me about a month of tearing down the carbs to get them to run. Did you go with the JD or use the needle in the GYTR? Do you know what plastics will fit? I assume the rear and front fenders?
The only piece of plastic that you can use on a STOCK 07 WR from the YZ is the front fender.
If you buy the IMS 3.1 g tank, then you will have to buy the YZ shrouds.
That's it as far as plastic goes.

The WR450 '07 & '08 are basically the same bike so I would assume the grey wire is next to the CDI unit behind the left side cover. Once Yamaha bring out fuel injection I think the grey wire saga will finally be over.
