The manual that comes with the US bike (english language) lists the US, CA, EUR, AUS/NZ, and ZA (South Africa?) specs. Singapore specs, they no in there.

My '99 WR4 manual says that the needle & clip position is different between the US & European/OZ models. By the way, I'm going to trial a DXL needle at the standard clip position in my WR4 (lid off and WB E-series) because the standard (DXM) needle was pus and ran too lean all the time. Has anyone tried this? :):D:D

I heard the US bikes come with Air-con too! ;-))

Seriously though, the exhausts on the US models are more restrictive so the jetting has got to be different.

Plus the US have the long throttle stop, we get short as standard.

Plus our grey wire comes disconnected as standard - the other side of the connector has no wire in it!

Comments are for 98 model, but I bet other years are similar.

The snorkel is the square section rubber tube that fits into the top of the airbox. On my 98 it is fastened in place with 4 3mm ish screws. It stops water getting into the airbox from big splashes and also quietens the intake.
