If It has a throttle stop, then you need to remember the carb is only able to open 1/4 to 1/2. So the bike will be extremely weak on power. Shave that throttle stop, its only a small bolt stopping things up........................................

Straight from the dealer the beast within the WR450 is greatly constrained. Start with ordering a YZ450 throttle stop screw Part# 5JG-14591-00-00 and replace the existing one. This is biggest BANG for the buck, and you'll be able to wrap the throttle wide open. It's not the same bike once you pass the 1/2 way mark. If you're really power hunger and have good medical insurance cut the grey wire controlling the timing restrictions. All of the free mods are described in detail under various forums here.

Mate I know exactly how you feel-I thought the same when I bought mine. You NEED to do all the mods ESPECIALLY get a new pipe, the bike is then like night and day, totally different, I couldnt believe how much more power I got out of it once I had jetted it and done the mods. Its drastically restricted and detuned in stock form.
