New WR450 or YZ450FX?

The FX is a WR with the lights removed and the EPA/DOT stuff removed.  

Ill look into that....

I'm concerned about the tank size.  Haven't seen it published, so assuming it is the same 1.9 gallons of the YZ.  Also, did a quick look, and doesn't seem any companies made a larger capacity tank for the 2015 YZ450F?  3.2 gallons would be great for long rides, 2.5ish would be great for any racing I would do.  Anyone have any info on this?

IMS makes a large tank for the 450, Monk runs one on his.

Monk is running a dry break version on his 450.

whats the advantage for running a dry break system over a "regular" screw cap?

Faster fuel stops when racing.

On a 24-hrs circuit race maybe..

But during an enduro/ off-road?

Lol, you'd have a higher spread of time in a 24 hour race, a 2 or 3 hour HS often has the winner, 2nd and 3rd with less than a minute between them.

15 second fill up vs 1 -2  minutes.

ok, got it....

That tank is huge!!

Which is required if you want/need to be known as an "adv" rider. That means a lot to office types on an adventure to all the Starbucks you can bag in a single weekend!

What WR ECU mods is everyone discussing? I have a 07 WR that I de-corked but never did anything with the ECU?

07 doesn't necessarily need a new ECU. You can pull the grey wire or you can get a Dynatek ignition or x10 ignition depending on what you are looking to do. The 2012 and up need a new competition ECU from Yamaha.

Never bought a new bike before, the MSRP price. Do you expect to pay that full price for newest models? What's the best you can expect off?

Hoping to hear back from my local dealer on monday as to when they expect to get the '16 in stock.

Here in Amsterdam by the end of next month...

No (EU)  prices though..

Interesting. I did the grey wire mod on my bike.
