450exc vs wr450

8 posts in this topic

Good friend of mine sunk $300+ on a new yosh for his wr450. :D I want to help the guy out because I still crawl away from him :eek: with a stock 450exc (new jd jetting kit of course). What else can the fella do to keep up :D . How much money does he need to invest or should we convince him in getting the 525exc? :D

Starting the bike seems to be pretty easy for him since he had just replaced his starter on his new 05 wr450 but the hard part is passing me. I can't even imagine racing a 250. I don't think it is worth the petrol.

Some easy mods would be YZ timing, YZ cam, etc.

I assume he has already done the throttle stop? Maybe not seeing he cant pass you?

Are u sure he can ride good. I would think that a wr450 would not have much problem keeping up or passing your bike. I know my yz426 doesn’t have any prob. with the orange bikes. :D
