Well, at least you had the luxury of popping yours in your garage, my friend. I, like you, just bought my WR450 Saturday, 6-28. Fired her up, roared up and down the street with a wicked grin on my face and thought all was well. Got up Sunday morning and headed for the mountains. About three miles into some extremely gnarly terrain my brand new beast decided to shut down and would run no more. Pulled the plug, just to make sure, even though I knew it was the dreaded woodruff key, I was praying I wouldn't have to push this thing back out of the rugged county I just rode into. Yanked the tank, checked the fuel line, checked all the electrical connections hoping it was anything but what it was. Anyhoo, about two hours later and waaaaay exhausted I was back at the truck with my brand new broken bike. I too was informed that the "fix" had been done. I inquired about it specifically before I dropped my 7g's down on the desk. I was assured the repair had been performed and the tell tale punch mark was indeed there. I was regretting my purchase all the way back down and up and down the mountain while pushing this thing- that is supposed to run like a raped ape- three miles out of no man's land. My dealer has "re-fixed" the problem so we shall see what happens. I think I'll stick closer to home this time on some nice flat dirt roads while I check this ride out again. Hope it works because I am currently very disappointed with this machine that is supposed to be the king of the four strokes.
