For those of you who remembered by 01 WR426 lighting on fire, I will be changing my picture soon to a 2003 WR450. It's slightly used, but the free mods are done + jetting + chain + sprokets + exhaust plug + pro tapers + this really cool little button that wakes up the engine without a struggle.

Please let me know how you think it compares to the WR426.

Are you going to stay with the stock gas tank? :) :D

Glad to here you got a new bike. Your burning bike story and pictures is a classic and hopefull a one time incident.
I think the flash point of these new WR's is higher. :)
