If there WAS a six speed conversion I would be all over it!
It would have to have have the gears made out of some pretty tough material though. The gearbox is pretty crammed into the cased and the gears would have to be quite a bit narrower to get six sets in there.
Do you really need your WR to go over 90 mph?

I know of guys doing that with their KTM's. I believe the SX's can be converted from 4 to 6 speed, but never heard of anyone doing that to a WR.
I imagine the SX's and EXC's use the same engine cases so you could put an EXC transmission in an SX. There are no bikes with six gears that use the WR engine cases so you'd have to get the gear clusters custom made which wouldn't be cheap or good for reliability.
