After reading some of the great info on this site, Ive read that the WR's come stock from the factory with little grease in the bearings. Is this true and if so should I regrease my bearings immediately? Which bearings need more grease? I love my beast and want to keep up on on the PM.

Grease it all, at least for peace of mind :)

You need to regrease two areas:

The rear suspension pivot points and your head set. Get some good waterproof grease, I use Bel Ray myself. Disassemble all parts, clean them up and reassemble using your grease.

My headset was almost dry and didnt turn that well. Its smooth as silk now!
