Gray wire switch
Posted June 24, 2003 - 04:05 PM
Why am I doing it?
Gray wire on: Controlable low end power for tight trails.
Gray wire off: To get the holeshot.
P.S. Grey is the British spelling of Gray:usa:.

The biggest returns I got were from the throttle stop, baffle, and the air box lid mods in just that order.
Do 'em all and you'd swear it wasn't the same bike.

It's strange that some of you guys can't tell the differance between the gray wire on or off. I owned the 2001 WR426 and the low end sucked. You are excused. The ignition mapping on the 2002, which I also owned, was much better for low-end, so you have minimal excuse. (2001 owners, buy a 2002 CDI unit!)The 2003 is a monster, with gobs of low-end and the gray wire off eliminates any nuance of low-end power control. The stroke from 426 to 450 seems to be mostly low-end improvement, so the gray wire mod is most noticable.
I suppose it also come down to riding style. If you're running the bike only on a closed track, you will not notice a difference. If you're negotiating a tight 180 degree uphill switchback, it becomes a big deal.
Gray wire off turns this beast into a mx bike that will snap your neck. Not good for tight, technical trails.
