04wr450

I just picked up a used 04 wr450. i have been reading alot of threads about the grey wire mods and i can't figure out if i can do this to my bike or not. Some guys say you need the yz cams to do this so it is not a free mod.Is this true? Or should i just go ahead and disconect the grey wire.

Thanks in advance.....Todd

I bought a brand new 04 wr450 over a year and 500mi. ago. The bike is completely stock except for the mandatory free mods. I just recently (finally) disconnected the gray wire. It may rev a little higher than before but it honestly doesn't make a difference w/ the riding I do. On a smooth road where you could rev each gear out it might be noticeable, but I wouldn't worry about doing this mod. too much. As for yz timing and cams, buy a yz. The whole point of the wr having different timing and cam's is to make it more trail friendly i.e. less stalling when the going gets slow.

I recently went trail riding with a guy on a YZ450 (rec reg) and i'm so glad that i bought my WR ! The YZ's four speed box, gear ratios, power curve and flywheel weight are all wrong for this type of riding - but it was the suspension that totally wore him out. Another example of thinking in advance and buying a bike that suits your needs. YZ's are great bikes - just have a look at their record - but WR's have in won in the bush.
