WR 450

does anyone have any experience on the new WR 450 as i have just ordered one as a second bike to me zook but would like to get any info good or bad on the blue beast before i hand over all me cash any advice please !!!! :)

I have a 02 DRZ400e as a buddy bike. I sold my 02 Yamaha WR426 and hope to have my 03 WR450 this week. Check posts on TT's Yamaha forum, there are a few reports. I like both the DR and WR426 a lot. Each have their good and bad points. I truly believe the WR450 will have most of the best of both. I'll know after I get mine and get some riding time on it.

Hey JP, is that a 92 RM125?

I owned one before and it is already sold. :)

I am interested to find out how you guys like the 4 spd tranny.

I know it saves weight and all but sometimes I wish I had a 6th gear when I get on the straights. I find myself shifting just to make sure I'm in 5th.

Sounds like a great bike though. Something to roost them Honda's with.

wr is 5 speed,yz is 4 speed.

Jim, I'm keeping my DR as a buddy bike too.

That means I'll allow one of my goofball friends or even worse a relative to ride my bike. Just what I need more bent handlebars.

I tell them when they crash to throw themselves underneath my bike.

      I totaled my DRZ400S last year, did a good bit of work to it and finally got it running.. I want to turn this into my full stunt bike.
      I have read before about people buying a 2nd stock rear caliper & bracket - then cutting and welding it to the existing bracket, then just running a handbrake master, and a hose to the 2nd caliper. 
      Has anyone done this before? Defiantly seems to be the cheapest route to go (staying away from the junction valve / 1 master cyl. & 1 caliper setup.)
      Looking for opinions, pros/cons, and info if anyone has gone this route.. If it seems too much of a risk or hassle I guess im gonna have to spend the $500/$600 to get a legitimate setup 
      any and all comments are appreciated - except trolls.. you better be funny as hell if your gonna troll.
      Thank you all!

      Anyone’s air box smell like gas ? Is this normal ? Air filter is bone dry but it reeks in there .... I’m assuming cause of the carb being semi filled with gas ??
