i got a 2004 wr plated for new brunswick canada. just a lil tip to save money on insurance,dont tell them its a stree and trail! call your insurace company and tell them you bought a motorcycle and you want to insure it, tell them its a wr 450 and give them the vin #. they will call you back in a few days telling you its a dirt bike,tell them that you have road tires and you dont go in the trails. for me the comparisson was 600$ to 175$

I will have one shortly. Just picked up a 2007 WR450. Can't wait to get it legal and ready to ride.

So what do you do to get it legal in Oklahoma? Walk into the DMV and show them a bill of sale and have the VIN?

Contemplating trying to plate my 09 here in California guess it's worth a shot any tips from those of you that have done it here in Cali?


You need to dual register it
Meaning you'll pay two fees. A green sticker reg fee and your plate reg fee.
Get your lights signed off. Vin and smog sticker verification. Statement of fact sheets filled out.
There's a whole step by step process from calif dual sport web site. I'll try to find it for you
Technically any green sticker bike is plateable.
Just cost more To reg
Just did my '14 wr 450. Even with the emissions sticker that says off road use only!
DMV is clueless to this process. Need to pt and walk them through

I've got an '01 wr426 plated in Michigan it was super cheap, and easy, but I did the bare minimum. Horn, brake light, plate light, mirror. When I had an officer come and inspect it they just asked if everything worked and signed the sheet.

05 WR450 picked it up in Wisconsin already plated with the motard wheels.   :ride:  Reliability I would say very good this is my first motorcycle and am loving it, it runs well on the road only thing I have really noticed is when your going down those 25 mph road and the bike isn't the best cruiser kinda jerky. But anyways if I wanted a cruiser I woulda got one.

Here's the bike:

That's typically your jetting. Now, some will say that it's part of the ignition/TPS, etc, and while that might be true, if you get your jetting optimized, the "stuttering" will almost be unnoticeable.

Well I'm not to good at getting the correct jetting myself, right now I have Main jet: 165 Pilot jet:45 not to sure on my needle or leak jet never messed with those ones... Also my elevation is 879 ft, it's usually humid 60's-80's mainly. Oh and I have the TPS sensor unplugged

Bought this bad boy last August. Had less than 1k miles on it when I got it. It's a 2006. I also bought another set of rims for it, they're off a 2005 wr450f. I put my knobbies on them and put some irc gp-1's on the original set of rims. Switch em out whenever I go to the track or trail riding. The sumos are just far to expensive.

There is a known issue with the stock ECU and it causes the studdering.

You can reduce it by unplugging the TPS and doing the YZ carb mod (no more ACV), but to eliminate it you need to get a Dynatek ignition ECU.
