Retrofitting electric starters......
Posted March 04, 2003 - 01:13 PM
I'd like to get a WR400, (for reasons of $) but the electric start on the 450 is so nice.
Anyone figured out the price and feasability of retrofitting the electric start of the wr450 on the wr400 or 426? Haven't found anything and was wondering if anyone else had looked into it.

There's a reason you can't find a kick start street bike anymore. When you start getting real big with the four strokes, it just makes sense. Try telling the HD guys they're pansies for giving up the kickers.

for street machinery...i would spend my $ on a nice BMW or a Honda st 1100 before i would waste my cash on a piece of crap Harley.they might look cool ...but I would not sacrifice engineering and performance, for beauty and a "cool" look.
i will probably eat a lot of sh!t for that statement ...but i gotta say what I feel...

Jump over to the YZ4XX side and look at the post pinned to the top, all the info is in there...

If you want to keep the WR timing, then you will need to get a WR 450 exhaust cam... but the YZ timing pumps you up even more... you can never have enough power, esp. if you need to loft the front wheel over a slower CRF that gets in your way...
