Picked up bike tonight, Love the looks,suspension,and the feel sitting on it, Cant beleive how bad it runs with the throttle stop in place. My 04 xr 400 would smoke it setup the way it is now. Got a bunch of goodies coming, unabiker rad. gaurds, jd jetting , ais kit, twin air filter, fmf powercore slip on,

next get IMS tank, maybe guts softer seat, WOuld like to get some protection, skid plate ,frame gaurds etc.

I can't believe some dealers send them out the door without at least doing the free mods. My dealer had mine running awesome when I picked it up... all that stuff done.

15 miles on the bike? Dump the oil and change out the filter, then do it again in another 100 miles. You'll thank me later...SC

Summit the dealer would have done it if i wanted for free, But i like to tear things down when i buy something, gives me time to learn and check all bolts,etc. I got a boat load of stuff coming and hope its here before the weekend, Give me something to do friday so i can ride it good saturday.

excited

does anyone know if the 07 YZ skid plates will fit the 07 Wr, cant seem to find one listed anywhere for the 07 wr 450.

thanks

In CA its actually against the law. The sales manager at the dealer I bought mine at said they have to deliver it in the state of tune that they submitted it for CARB green sticker testing. Even on the red sticker MX bikes the dealer technically cannot change the fuel screw setting

That two hours you spend doing the free mods, consider it bonding with your bike :lol:

No, the mounting holes are differernt for the YZ. You can drill a YZ skidplate to work with the WR mounting holes, but it would be easier to buy a WR specific skid plate from utah sport cycle

part # 272. PM Kyle Prior from the TT store and he should be able to set you up (the TT skidplate is the same thing as the utah sport cycle one)

Watch that air filter and I don't just mean the aforementioned hole either!

I am about 4 weeks ahead of you. 6.5 hours on the bike right now. Unabiker , Moose bark buster, Scotts steering stab, JD Jets, crankcase vent mod and pulled off the tail pipe, AIS is gone and air filter fixed.

Powercore and 12T counter sprocket will be here Friday. Gray wire and airbox mod TBD.

I went riding this last weekend, the first real ride on the thing (:applause: ) and it was quite dusty. I took off the stock filter and there was a very, very thin but detectable layer of dust after the air filter. I don't know what would be considered acceptable but that wasn't what I expected.

Unacceptable to me!

I ordered the Twin Air filter and condom. The TT guy I spoke to said that he rides the desert and uses Twin Air exclusively.

F2racing.net has magnetic timing plug covers, and magnetic oil filler caps. You can pickup all three for about $50. I just purchased them for my 07 wr450f and they look great.

I saw the same thing. It looked like either dust or gainy plastic. I wiped my finger on the airboot and nothing showed up :confused:

Regardless, the stock filter is getting shit-canned. Twin air lists the filters as 03-07, does that mean a twin air for an 03-04 would fit? SJMC DON would know as he's had pretty much every generation of WR made

Has anyone geared theres down lower at all, I was on some tight technical tonight and thought it could use a bit lower gearing, Hard to judge though until i get all the mods done?

thanks

I also noticed quite alot of heat coming off the exhaust , anyone have there header ceramic coated? I did that on my 2006 brute force 750 cause of the heat on the leg, helped alot and was not that expensive. I bet for the bike it would be under $40, I might do that this winter.
