Installed '07 YZ 450f header and WB E2 after work today. Sounds wicked :cry: Not too loud but not all that quiet either. Probably on par with the stock '07 YZ exhaust or a little quieter . The tone is is nice and throaty. And the throttle response is SUPER sharp now. Noticed a slight hesitation up top but one size fatter on the main will fix that. The fit of the E2 to the YZ header is super tight. Alot of effort, yelling, swearing, and throwing shit was needed to put it on.

Tomorrow's list includes rejetting :thumbsup: and fixing a flat :p

I'll put up the pics when I post the ride report (in this thread). That exhaust looks so nice on there I'm seriously thinking about getting the white plastics now. My stimulus check is in grave danger :worthy:

Went for a ride with a buddy who just got his 06 wr, we took some pics and videos, and I climbed a wicked big hill, very rough, tried it three years in a row and finally got up to the top today (had the camera brought home then though :thumbsup:

I installed my flatlands racing rad guards today. I am happy with them except for the fact that they don't cover the rads completely and leave a couple of rows of fins exposed on the inside edges.

Put on front and rear M6006 tires. New chain and sprockets. And then road it down the street to our little local track and attempted to look like I knew what i was doing. Didn't do very good at that.

Lost the decompression plug on my new (to me) 450. Ordered a new billet one from ebay.com but i live in the uk so i'll probobally be off the bike for a few weeks untill the part is shipped over. It sucks! I figured that while the bike is off the road i'd take the time to do the throttle stop and grey wire mods...but now im dying to run the bike to see what difference they have made and can't until the new plug arrives. That sucks even more!!!! :thumbsup:
