Isnt this a what did you do to your WR thread? Not a what did you do with your family this weekend thread?


At least hes adding something worth seeing, unlike your post which has nothing to do with anything on this forum.

I picked up a GYTR tuner a few days back and grabbed the GYTR tip for the stock exhaust yesterday. It sounds better without being too loud, and gives it a bit more kick through the power band. Currently I have been running the Aussie map but just switched to the mid range power map from Yamaha and am getting ready to go tool around before work.

Hopefully Sunday .

Gonna prep it with acetone , 2 hrs of taping off and then warm the cans in the sun and then just let her rip !

The only reason I am trying it is cause you can just peel it off , no harm no foul.

Wont that stuff scratch off to easily? I would think it would rub off in one ride just where the boots rub the frame?

Well it could if you your boot were able to get a edge...I wrapped my frame..plastidip is super strong but if you start rubbing the edge you can peel it off..you won't just start chipping it like paint...

Upgraded my super faithful 2004 vintage wr450 with a brand new 2012 model. Hopefully this new one is equally as reliable and no fuss. Inital review is it handles way better and hauls ass.

What are you planning to about the ECU? The reason I ask is because I may be upgrading and know, in order to reach it's full potential, you have to change the ECU or something. I know there have been threads on this previously but want some more information.

The aus delivered wr450s already have the so called competition ecu, so all you need is a small loom extention and the power tuner plugs in and away you go. I had my dealer do the derestriction and install some of the yamaha supplied comp parts.

Have tried he sand map and another custom linear map which I am loving
