Any other advice on how to ease up the engine braking would be nice.

1. Has your friend added flywheel weight?
2. His idle may be slightly higher than yours.

I should be bringing the WR over soon to get it susp. done.
Dan From HB - Honestly 98YZ himself would be the one to answer that it was his bike i rode a coulple months ago.

Idle higher - yes slightly
I think the main difference is the gearing in the trasmissions. As long as I kept the WR in third and fourth it felt comparable to the YZ minus a little snap. If I ever messed up and downshifted all the way to second, holy crap I was hanging out over the bars because it slowed down so quick.

It's hard to explain but here goes:
When I'm blasting a down hill in 3rd dropping the throttle is like braking. So I give a little throttle to help keep front end out of the soil. If bumping up a gear "usually to fast for that track" the front wheel buries causing that washout feeling. Not to mention dropping that gear in the corner just below. bla-bla.....
