Got a 08 Wr450.. Couple questions- Key & JD
Posted February 22, 2010 - 08:01 PM
I am going to License it for the road and wondered what you guys do for
a key? Can a key be added or hidden kill switch.. too many thieves out there.
2. Jetting... is the JD kit the only way to go on jetting? I am having a hell of a time starting and keeping it running.
I am at 4500' and ride 4500 to 9000 and pretty sure I need to rejet since this bike just came form Los Angeles to SLC- Utah Area.
opinions appreciated and other suggetions appreciated. Seems like a perfect ride after being on a Honda 650r for a few years.

Regarding the Key, I do not have first hand knowledge about this in the north woods of WI but one suggestion is to just by a paddle lock and run it through the break roter like the Harley owners do. Cheaper and it works.
Jetting, these bikes are so restricted because of the Green sticker that re-jetting is a must, to get them started, Idling, running and performing correctly. your frustration will subside once done.
three options to consider:
Call or drop an email to JD and tell them what your elevation is, they will give you the correct input, and then sell them to you.
Read the the sticky Performance index page and see what they are running at your elevations http://www.thumperta...ad.php?t=440372 I use the sticky all the time.
Yamaha sells the GYTR WR AIS Removal Kit http://www.yamaha-mo...8/0/detail.aspx
It comes with all you need to de-restrict your WR, new jets and throttle screw and great directions. it costs $46.00 and can get it from ThumperTalk. :thumbsup:This is what i have done, however based on your elevation, you might want to run a leaner main and pilot jet.
Let us know how it turns out.
See you on the trails

Those bikes are not finicky. They will run ok with the main jet 3 sizes off. They just run BETTER with it right on. A jet is $6.
Buy a kit if you want, but these forums have all the info you need to jet them accurately.
