His racing friend did all the work . thanks very much for all your information and advice. rode bike this past weekend had a blast what a difference from a yz 125 much easier to trail ride.

Hello DCJr. I'm sure a lot of folks are gonna reply with do the yz timing, grey wire, possibly rejetting, different metering rod, removing the airbox lid. I recently too bought a brand new 2002 WR426 and the only performance mods I've done is cut the throttle stop and remove the can plug from time to time. I love it just as it is. Certianly a quite capable bike. I have a buddy with the same bike and has done all of the above mods, Yeah it is faster, but somewhat more finiky about starting and such, it actually fouled a plug last ride. Hell I don't have the skills to take advantage of the power it already has. I'm gonna focus more on getting the suspension setup for my weight, then better my skills before I hit the other mods. Just my take on it.
