WR426 with Yz cam mod and grey wire mods

8 posts in this topic

Hi guys,

I have a WR426 01 Just wondering if i change to YZ cam timing and grey wire mod will the bike overheat like the YZF's do i brought the WR to climb rocky hills nice and steady without overheating, but of course i wouldnt mind a bit more get up and go so i thought i would ask your opinions

Thanks,

Chad

I wasn't aware that the YZF's overheat. At least as long as you can keep some air flowing thru the radiators that is. So bringing your WR up to YZF standards shouldn't increase your boil-over issues any, as long as you do the same and keep some air flowing thru those larger than YZ radiators.

thats what i meant with the WR's you can climb hills nice and slowly with no overheating so im thinking the yzf timing she would overheat a little easier,

Are the Wr radiators bigger than the YZF's i wasnt aware of that

Thanks,

Chad

Hmmmm.........................................that's an interesting question. I'm sure your terrain is missing the same ingrediant as our terrain here in Montana, traction. And with limited traction with terrafirma, I wouldn't use the YZ timing, but that's me. Smooth power is easier power to keep the rear wheel hooked up and moving forward. But what I would do if I was you, would be to try it. Heck, you might be alot better rider than me and can adapt with a skilled throttle hand, whereas I'm just a heavy handed brute, no finesse for me! :(
