Best after market mods Wr450fy

12 posts in this topic

Hey guys

I recently purchased an 09 brand new wr450fy and already did most of the free mods disconnected gray wire removed snorkel and uncorked exhaust.

Now I'm looking for some aftermarket power and need some help, my budget right now is about $450-$500 but with so many options it's hard to decide, so maybe some expirienced wr fan can tell me what would be the best option.

Also does the powerbomb fit in stock mid pipe.

Feed back will be greatly appreciated

I would take that cash and put it into improving the suspension, ie. springs for your weight and even a revalve if it fits the budget.

YZ exhaust cam

YZ exhaust(stock OEM is fine)

If your bike has more area to let air in the airbox make the holes

Not sure about your year. My 04 had cast in cut outs under the right side airbox panel

If you want more power than that you bought the wrong bike

Yep, the yz header and silencer, 09 is the best year as the silencer was the shortest. And yes unless you are 140lbs soaking wet or ride slower that my 4 year old you will want to give the suspension some attention.

Make sure you jet the bike for any changes you are making.

Hey do you live in El Salvador. I spent some time down there. Where do you ride?

If you want serious power gains go with the DRD system, it absolutely rocks. Had the 09 yz stock system before, was not impressed, the oversized header flows too much and the silencer is too restricted.

But if I'm changing the exhaust cam wouldn't I want more flow, I've heard good things about dr.D and at a reasonable price actually I'd rather buy dr.d but don't know if I'd need a wider head pipe because of the hotcams

I put a YZ exhaust cam in my 08 WR. An 06 to be exact.

The Dr. D pipe is a good choice.

With those 2 mods and some carb jetting your bike will be a rocket.

Does your bike start with the electric starter having installed the YZ cam? I've heard reports from several people that it's a real issue.

As far as mods after the free mods....FMF Powercore Ti and SS Power bomb along with a JD jet kit will wake the stock bike up nicely. When you find yourself wanting more...that's the time to start looking at cams, compression, big bore, etc.
