wr 450 hp
Posted December 25, 2008 - 12:25 AM
I am thinking about buying a 08 wr 450. I owned a yzf 426 and i am wondering how does a wr 450 (free mods done + yzf complete exhaust) compare with yzf 426 power wise?
I am hopping to get 2 or 3 hp more out of the wr to compensate for the additional weight.

08 wr450-248.0 pounds dry
i can't find actual hp numbers but if you put a set of cam's in the 450 and all the free mods with a pipe i guarantee it will spank a 426 , i wouldn't even worry about the cams , but its an easy option .
the alluminum frames are a lot better mannered bikes you won't regret it .
just don't freak out when you drive a corked wr , i know i wondered why the throttle didn't move and figured a 450 should be doing a little more then a 250 .
