03 WR450 removing Air box baffle
Posted March 19, 2003 - 02:30 PM
on the 03 WR450 with the side cover air box it Looks like it seems to be spot welded and doesn't remove easy (didn't want to break the air box or battery holder)
has anyone done this or know how to ??
I've done all the other mods....throttle stop, pipe, grey wire. accelerator pump tweak, stiffer springs in the forks moose tubes and chain.
I rode a 99 WR400 for three seasons in hare scrambles and dualsport/desert rides and loved it.
the 03 is even better and a blast to ride.

The only problem with removing the baffle is you need three hands.......... A flat screwdriver in each hand and a pair of pliers in the other one.. Jamb a screwdiver down one either side of the metal clip that holds the battery rubber band on, then pry back to front. This will release the tabs that lock the baffle in place. Then with your nonexistant 3rd hand pull the baffle out with the pliers.
I wouldn't worry too much about drowning the bike in water unless the water is seat deep!!!!!!!! Your bike will thank you for this because it will be able to BREATH.
