New 450-slow but cool
Posted April 30, 2003 - 07:04 AM
I picked up my WR450 from the dealer last night – finally. I only had a chance to ride it in the lot before I loaded it up. Having sold my XR650 and remembering how that felt, the WR seemed very slow in stock form. I look forward to uncorking it and applying the free mods.
I bike arrived at the dealer on Friday without the TSB completed. I was surprised that the work was not done, since the WR was supposed to be in “sometime in March”. I thought that Yamaha was holding back shipments to perform the TSB. Apparently not.
I have the following pieces to install:
• Devol frame guards
• GYT-R baffle
• Devol radiator guards
• Pro Moto Billet disk guard
• Utah Sport Cycle skid plate
• Pro-Taper bars – mid CR bend in black w/ Answer adaptor
• Enduro Engineering bark busters with EE hand guards – all black
• Twin Air filter x 2
• Yamaha hour meter
• Big handful of jets
• Childish/vulgar stickers – important
Any comments or suggestions before the work begins?
Thanks to all TT members for sharing info. I ordered this bike in January and with the help of TT, I know more about the 450 than most dealers.
Ride fast – take chances.
