New (soon to be) owner of a 02 wr 426

I don't intend to do a lot of modifications performance wise. I'm sure I'll have more than enough anything for a while, remember my present ride is a 1978 Sachs 250 wr, I'm in for a big change. It will finally get some rest. Until my 15 years old son grabs it .
I intend to ride the bike as stock as possible, for now...
I'll add a skid plate, , hand guard, a pro taper bar with the cr rise bars etc... Blue wire if it's hard to start. We'll see.
I'm wondering if the bikes sold in eastern Canada are jetted accordingly ?
I live near Montréal in Québec Canada, where the temperature varies from below freezing up to + 85. But generally I ride from the 40's to the 80's. As for elevation we are near sea level up to 2000ft max.
Thanks again for all the advice

Congrats on your new purchase. I can only begin to tell you how nice this bike is. I,like you,chose not to do too many mods at a time. It had been a while since I rode so I wanted to adjust to things slowly. Let me warn you on the shock when first riding this bike. It definately has more power than any dirtbike I have ever ridden. After a few rides I removed the snorkel from air box. After a few more I removed air box cover and uncorked pipe. WOW ! Now this is a bike ! I have yet to take things to the next level. Still at WR timing and haven't touched my jetting. Why ruin a good thing? I may try the grey wire eventually. Bike starts great so no need for blue wire.
Anyways, congrats on your new purchase and welcome to Thumpertalk.
