The Lexx pipe worked great yesterday. Noticed a slight loss of mid range snap compared to wide open YZ pipe. Bike ran fine - no re jetting needed.
Definately quieter, but still has a healthy bark without being obnoxious.
What size tip did you try ? I do like the big 46 mm tip but to be honest it hurt my ears a bit at first,
I had to take it out and go with one of the smaller ones . Mainly because I felt like a dick being that loud.

Still trying to figure the best dead engine start for this thing. Both e-start & kick start are a 50\50 on whether or not it'll start. Suppose e-start will soak up less energy than kicking. Maybe I'll do both.

I broke it in on 50/50 fireroads and single track .
It did develop a slight oil leak right at the oil filter cover , gee I cant imagine why .
Outsmarted myself again........that O ring on the bottom should be on the left side. Oops.
It's fixed, now I just adjust my chain and its good to go.

I havent had the wr very long and it was hardest riding iv ever done on any bike but had the time of my life,7 hours of the most hectic random terrian and friendly townships with little shabeens all over to quench the thirst andfinally a huge thorn that ended the day off!
Sadly have decided to sell the wr to get a ktm xcw/exc they just so much easier to ride and are set up perfectly for dewildt!

YAMAHA WR450F 2011 - $6800 (fayetteville)
2011 YAMAHA WR450F
Bike has very few hours on it, I have been riding and working on motorcycles for 20 years and this bike is perfect.
I have religiously changed the oil and oil filter and cleaned the air filter after the few rides the bike has been on.
The bike was broken in correctly, and I have run only factory suggested oil through this bike. no synthetic oil has ever been used
When I first bought the bike i took it apart, made sure every axel/bearing was lightly greased, and then I put it back together using a torque wrench on every nut and bolt and tightened to spec per owners manual.
Valves have been checked recently and are perfectly in spec.
The amount of work and after market parts i have put in this bike surpasses the amount of time riden.
I enjoy working and customizing bikes and this one is no exception.
I have been deployed twice (16 months) since I got this bike and it has sat on a bike stand in an air conditioned garage/storage unit since I have owned it. No more than 20 hours on the bike
I have professionally tuned and upgraded this bike to be a hare scramble/motocross hybrid.
The custom suspension done by total control racing is set up for my weight (190 lbs) to soak up roots and ruts off road and still be able to hit a large jump at the track without bottoming out.
The Air Induction System that originially came on this bike and been removed via the AIS removal kit w/ yamaha genuine parts
Although I still have all parts for the system if the next owner wishes to reinstall the AIS
I also have every single stock part that was originally on the bike, IE muffler, header, jetting, springs etc.
The worth of the after market parts and suspension work done to this WR is in the thousands of dollars
