yep, you heard right... there is not throttle stop on Australia (or European or Canadian for that matter) bikes - don't go trying to cut the grey wire either... there will not be one... we also get a pretty good stock exhaust...

Other things discussed here at TT do apply to our bikes... jetting, BK modification, airbox lid, cam timing...

I would leave the exhaust stock. I have an 01 Canadian model. The only modification I have done is the cam timing. I just rode it back to back against a YZ426 with a very loud FMF exhaust on it. Very little difference in power, but a huge difference in noise. The only advantage I can see from changing the exhaust is the weight savings.
