Finally decided to register today. I have pulled a lot of very useful information from TT, and wanted to thank you all for your input.
I had been riding a modified TTR250F which was a lot of fun, but finally stepped up to the WR426F. I'm still breaking it in, so I haven't done the throttle stop mod yet or change to YZ timing. Like others have said, I think it is fun to change one thing at a time and see what a difference it makes in the overall performance.
One problem I have is that the LIGHTS are not working. I have no power to the switch so I suppose it is either the relay or the CDI. I guess since it is still under warranty I can take it back to the dealer, but what a drag.
Anyone have any similar problems?

I know I looked at those wires...(blue and yellow I think) and it seemed they were connected properly but it never hurts to double check.
I'd hate to see a short on a brand new bike, but it could have been built on a Monday morning or a Friday afternoon!
Thanks for the help, I'll let you know what I find.

You will find a ton of info here to help you with your new bike, and if you don't find what you are after using the search facility, then just ask - plenty of knowledgeable people are reading and posting every day.
it sounds like you need to take of the tank and visually inspect the wiring loom for loose connector, or pinched wires. be systematic and you will discovery any problems.

It's always a good feeling to me to make sure everything is in proper operating order. Thanks for the replies, this is a great forum.
A couple of my friends stopped by last night, and one of them just had to sit on the WR after I got done putting her back together. Later, he was standing there looking it over and says..."Those things don't even interest me anymore." To which I responded..."Then why were you sitting on it with that big grin on your face?" He just smiled and shook his head 'cuz he knew he was busted!
Have a great weekend.

The amount of grease put into a brand new bike is pathetic! the manufacturers should be ashamed!!!!!
