what about gearing, same gear as the 400, but are you going 10 or 20 mph faster? if so maybe thats part of it.
or you might just know how to bounce the 400 suspension just right with the thottle and don't have it down on the 450 yet. mine wheelies with ease in 3rd and sometimes 4th with a bit of motivation

Yep did the throttle cable mod too.Whats the advantage of removing the AIS?
Mine will stand it up in 4th if the traction is there, and the engine isn't even in that high state of tune (throttle stop, gray wire, pmb insert, jetting, open airbox).
Try sitting on the rear fender. That will make the front weigh less and give the rear tire more traction...but you shouldn't need to do that

It sounds like you have two issues. First, your bike may not be jetted correctly, despite what the shop mechanic told you. From his statement regarding "some kind of race setup", his judgement is suspect. Second, you're expecting too much out of a totally different bike than the 400. Just because it has 50 more cc's, doesn't mean it's going to be that much more of a beast. As the WR has progressed, the power curve has become more linear in both torque and bHP. They don't have as hard a hit as they used to because what wins races is traction, not wheelies. If you want wheelies, drop down a tooth on the drive sprocket and doublecheck your jetting against the database. I can't do third gear wheelies on mine without a little clutch, but then again I weigh 225 and live at 5000' asl...SC

The bike is much more responsive than my old 426, but I never played with the jetting on that as it seemed to run very well.
