Rejetting correctly makes a huge difference with these bikes. Also due to the wide ratio tranny I would bet that its gonna feel quite a bit different even when you get it dialed in.

The Canadian models are different to the US models... you have done the YZ timing, once you do the airbox lid, and if you change the muffler, then all you have left to do is to get it jetted correctly...
The wide ratio transmission and the heavier flywheel weight will make it seem slower than a YZ... still plenty fast enough... try the 450 cam and the JamesNOW! mods... they are nice for your bike...

YZ Needle-("E" Taper) Useful as long as you run with no air box lid & an OPEN exhaust
YZ Pipe-Great Performance BUT too LOUD.Here in Michigan we are supposed to meet 94db (Sucks but its the Law)
I run my air box lid on with no baffle & 4 1 inch holes W/UNI-Filter vents.2002 YZ Pipe w/PMB Endcap modified to meet 94db limit.This set-up favors stock "D" Taper needle.My Final thought is if you can play loud go ahead.I ran my YZ silencer open last year and my buddy heard me coming a mile away :DThe WR is a far more usable bike than a YZF for my application.Hope that helps a little.
