I took it out and played with it, The WR450 that is. I broke it in according to www.mototuneusa.com/break-in-secrets.htm, so it only took about an hour, then I went for it. The power is great, its smooth with no real hit, but it pulls hard and long. the low end is smooth and tractable, it should be good even for tight trails. The suspension is still pretty stiff, especilly in the little stuff. But does it handle? YES! it corners and changes direction like a dream, and is totally stable at high speed. I ran it through a pile rocks, grapefruit size and blasted right through, I was so impressed I kept going back over them, no defection at all. I've had a little problem with inconsistant starting, maybe I don't have the drill down yet, or it needs a little pilot jet or air screw work, Iam at 4500 feet. there you have it so far.
