These things do make a ot of valve train - piston noise. Especially if you have a skid plate on them. It seems to direct all the noise right up to the rider.

Watch out for the half moon retaining cam clip that will try to pop out and fall into your motor when you pull the cam caps off. Take extra caution here.
Ive seen several write ups on the subject. I even have one on my website (look in my sig) but not sure how it would apply to the 450. I cant imagine it would be too different (except for the removal of the compression release)

Other than that enjoy....its real easy. Make sure you keep an eye on which bucket/shim goes where...mark up a piece of paper with the locations.

Moly disulfide is an assembly lube used to cushion metal to metal mating parts until proper oil flow takes over the job. Use it liberally, as it will mix with the engine oil and disappear.
The first time I did this (I also split cases to change some gears) I used alot of assembly lube then tried to ride at a really hilly track. The end result was a slipping clutch. My recommendations would be to warm the bike up and change the oil again right away as I think the assembly lube has friction modifiers in it that are bad for the clutch. This may vary by brand.

All my intake clearances are below specs I got from yZ manual. Would really appreciate the wr specs from someone.
WR426 in the process of many mods as we thread.

Yes they are.
I want to know if 2002 wr426 and yz426 valve clearance specs are the same.
