New 06 WR450 Owner (pics)

Previous owner didnt give me much information so not sure if he did all the work himself or not. He did say he had NOT cut the grey wire but I'm noticing what looks like AIS eliminated and something else removed (blue boot in picture) as well as cut the air box.
It seems jetted well and runs like a bat out of hell even with the sparky in the exhaust which I just removed.
What do you guys think?
Do those snorkels need to be removed?
What is this blue thing covering?
Valve cover coming off next to check those after she's good and cleaned...dirty as hell when I brought her home.

With the AIS tube there...it looks like absolute ass but its crimped well and heavily soldered with brass solder.
Next question, how can I tell if the throttle stop has been changed or cut? What is the length of the YZ stop and the WR stop?
edit: NVM found it. Now just to see if the grey wire is done.

Sticker is definately coming off though.
Just gotta find myself somewhere that I can get a YZ front/rear fender and a new set of OEM decals.

Gonna just need to order a full AIS kit with a YZ throttle stop screw and replace it all.
All in all though I would say its a good deal. Compression is still well within specs, valves are within spec, chain, sprockets and tires are good. Battery is fresh and she starts VERY easy and runs great. Just some tiddying up to do from some shadetree work before.
For frame paint do you guys in general use the Yamaha stuff straight from Colorrite or is there a cheaper place to get it?
