07 WR450 mods ride report and comparison
Posted November 29, 2009 - 01:20 PM
My last bike that i had was a TTR250 that i dual sported and managed to rack up 40000 trouble free Kilometers. The WR was a massive improvement over the TTR but just didn't feel like it was what i was looking for. The bike was really smooth riding while going through the power curve and was a great trail bike. After trying my friends KTM i realized that is what i was looking for a hard hitting hang on for the ride type power.
I decided to mod the bike and the first thing i noticed it revved alot freer and felt more responsive. When riding with the KTM now the 525sx still has a slight power advantage over me but i think that could be fixed with a gearing change. On top end i have about a 5-10 mph advantage over the KTM so by installing a 12T front sprocket will allow my bike to top out at about the same speed and give me the slight power advantage.
Recommend anyone to install a set of cams and exhaust to bring the power up on the bike. Next mods that i will do may be suspension but the bike feels good to me now for my 6'2" 185lbs frame.
