Just Bought WR, 10 questions

Hi, I just bought a 01 WR426. I wont get it for a couple weeks. Its a canadian model. I had a some questions.

1. What kind of tires come on a canadian wr?

2. does a wr come with lights?

3. does a wr come with soft springs?

4. What kind of differnece does the yz timing make?

5. If I do the yz timing do I have to change any other settings? Jetting?

6. Ive heard the candian muffler is more restrictive, any ideas for opening it up, does anyone have a stock yz426 muffler for sale?

7. Anyone know of any good deals on yz tanks and seats?

8. Being a canadian model I dont have the throttle stop or grey wire, any other mods I should know about?

9. Any recommended setup tips for a new bike, should I regrease or ride awhile then regrease?

10. any purchases I should make? Im gonna buy a magnetic drain bolt before I run it. I would like some radiator guards, my last bike had a bent radiator within a few rides, the shrouds never fit the same. Any suggestions for a radiator guard. Ive seen two types. The brace behind type, and the coverall type, any pros or cons for either.

Thanks for all your help

hey there canadian, I do'nt know the details of the can. WR, but I know that the devol guards are worth the money! $230.00 per rad. but only $70 for the braces. the works conn. braces are ok but do not offer the same amount of protection.

Why didnt you just buy a yz if you are going to do all of those yz mods to it. yz's are less then a wr not to mention all the mods. Seems like common sence to me. I have a stock wr muffler if you are interested.but it is from a 98. it will work i believe.
