I blew my transmission in my 2009 YZ450F so im getting it rebuilt, but if I can I want to put in a WR transmission because I race desert so I want it to be a little faster, what are all the parts I would need to replace, and what are the parts I could keep. Do the shift forks and shift drumb need to be replaced or are they the same?

Ask yourself why a thread at the top of the forum index would say, "Look here 1st".... :thumbsup:

It will also give you a lower first gear.

Cool. Just my way of ribbing the newbies. At least you didn't revive a 9 year old post. :thumbsup:

The forks and drum are the same, and so are all the rings, bearings, washers, etc. and the output shaft. The main shaft and the other nine gears are different. The thread contains a detailed parts list.
