After weeks of research and deciding the best ride for myself, I'm planning on purchasing a new wr426F.

I've found loads of info on this forum about the various free mods that can be done to the stock wr (throttle stop / grey wire / airbox) but wondered if there are any sites out there that give detailed instructions and pictures of these processes being applied?

Any good links appreciated.

:) Remember, the throttle stop/grey wire thingy's don't apply to UK bikes, you will spend a long time looking otherwise :D

I was thinking of buying an import with the factory Yam dualsport eqpt. Do you know if other european bikes have these restictions?

There is another topic going on in the Wr250 forum at the moment...

New WR250 owner needs help

Check it out...

Like it was stated above, you cannot do the throttle stop and grey wire, so skip those steps...

:) As far as I'm aware, the grey wire/throttle stop are a US only deal, due to emissions etc, everything else that applies to the bike re: jetting ,Pump jet mods etc is fine
My 99 is a euro model and there is no grey wire and my stop is "Normal" :D

Great.. thanks. The link to the other thread was very useful. Perhaps the Thumpertalk webmaster might put these links in the technical section?

The internet is a wonderful thing, I don't even own a 426 yet and I'm already armed with so much info about it.

My only choice now is whether to take the plunge in a few weeks time when I'll have the cash (I hope) or wait and see what the 03 version brings :)

(scratch that... I know I won't be able to wait) hehe
