Traded my yz426 for a wr450...what now??

5 posts in this topic

Evening thumpers, as the title states I just traded my 00 yz426 (pretty modified) for a bone stock 07 wr450. I think I did pretty darn well in that deal, gonna miss my xd 45 but I think the bike will make up for it. Anyway, what can I expect out of this bike? Best/ worst mods? As soon as I post this I'm going straight to the stickies. My big question is what of the street legal stuff can I ditch. Really only want to keep the lights for desert legality.

Haha, not too likely...even all corked up this thing has potential. I cannot believe that A) the factory produced this bike with that terrible a throttle stop and :smirk: that the PO left it that way!!

Yea I saw that on one of the stickies...I'm pretty sure the exhaust , the intake snorkels, the gray wire, and the AIS garbage is mandatory. Any other tips for a new WR guy? I'm In the process of ditching the lights and the speedo. May make quick disco's so I can slap them back on for the desert. Not sure yet...
