Planning on running my 450 in more offroad events. I've already added a Rekluse Z Start Pro. For tight woods, would a FWW also be a benefit and if so, which one? Yamaha lists 3 in the accessory catalog, one offroad and 2 smaller weights. With the Rekluse I don't have any stalling issues, unless I pick the wrong gear and chop the throttle which is rare.

As far as performance mods, all I have done is the Rekluse and a DRD Ti exhaust.

I have the GYTR offroad FWW on my '08 with a Rekluse Pro and the bike is a tractor in the woods. That said, it is mostly due to the clutch and less so to the FWW. I would ride it for awhile and then see if you still think it needs smoothing out.

I've had the Rekluse on for a couple of months now and it's been great, nomore stalling issues on the MX track. Best investment I've made actually. But, I hadn't ridden the bike in tight woods yet. With the DRD exhaust, it does seem like it could use just a little more bottom. I'm doing my first Enduro this weekend, maybe I will just add a tooth on the rear sprocket and see how it goes.

I added the Steahly 9oz FW to my '09. Stock clutch. It totally transformed the bike for woods riding. My stalling issues went away, and the machine is like a tractor in the tight stuff. It is the best mod I have done by far.
