I have a '01 that I've done up for the woods.
Here's the list;
FMF Gnarly (had a dented up Fatty on it when I got it, both pipes run exactly the same, no difference. Went with the Gnarly for the thicker steel.)
Steahly 11oz FWW (rode it for a month without FWW then installed it. Couldn't believe the difference!! No loss of power, just a lot more useable, really helped on short run at hill climbs)
Bridgestone M403/404 tires.
Barkbusters (used them once already, likely saved me a trip to the ER)
Gripper seat cover.
KX250 clutch steels (told it would help out on power to rear wheel, but didn't notice anything except eating up stock basket. A Wiseco basket will go in over the winter)
I ride with two others on 4-stroke 400 & 450. They have tried hard to get me to drink the 4-stroke Kool-aid as we switch bikes often. (FWIW...I prefer the YZ400F over the KX450F) I was raised on 2-strokes and try not to embarass them too much when I can. Mostly I just end up waiting for them at the road crossings.
Thanks & Good riding.

Clutch is still very touchy when bikes cold or been sitting 15-20 minutes...once it warms up it seems to work fine, also changing oil after every couple by rides and no metal so gonna hold off on clutch....
Been playing with main and pilot jets....lol
Seems to be much crisper from idle, and not fouling plugs at all since I
went from a 48 to a 44 pilot..lol
should have it out later today and update some more on how it does...
