With the creation of www.off-road.com's WR450 mailing list meant another avenue in which WR450 enthusiasts could share information regarding our motorcycles. Recently, however, I'm disappointed with the comments of the list admin there. Here are the emails. Please read from the bottom of the quote to the top. A solution from someone that I've never even heard of? If you think your product has merit, send it to me for review, I'll send it back after I'm done, otherwise, you are SPAM'ing my list. The jetting kit might be the best thing since sliced bread but it might be a rip off as well... As I recall 70 bucks is the asking price. I can buy a boatload of jets for that price. Mike Hobbs ============= Mike, What is the purpose of this mail list? My understanding is that it's "A mail list covering all aspects of the new, Yamaha WR450 dirtbike." In my opinion, Rick didn't spam this mail list. He merely offered an alternative solution to one aspect of the WR450 (the 1/4-1/2 throttle miss issue) that WR owners suffer from.

Dude, don't pull my ear, my bikes always run perfect. Guess you have something to do with JD, whatever that is... Anyhow, if your SPAM gets out of control I'll ban you like they do on TT. If you'd like to buy some advertising I can have our sales department contact you. Mike Hobbs ORC ========================================================================== Having trouble jetting the stock carb? Having a mis at 1/4-1/2 throttle? My fix was the JD Kit, you can find it and read more about it on http:\\www.thumpertalk.com. Cheers, Rick ========================================================================== Edelbrock used my bike to make a "Quick Silver" carb for the WR450. We Dyno'ed it with a dirt tire so the numbers are low by somewhere around 12% but max HP was 38.5 with both the stock and Quick Silver carb. Although ridding the WR with the Edelbrock seemed to produce a lot more power! No clutch, 3rd and 4th gear wheelies. The QS is a pretty cool carb, jet less. To change the jetting all you have to do is turn a knob on top of the carb. That "mis" at 1/4-1/2 throttle is gone with the QS. I know a lot of folks are having a hard time jetting the stock carb on the WR and with the Edelbrock it's effortless. After some trail time I'll do an article on ORC about it. Contact Rob Barnum for more info : http://www.barnumspro.com/proproductweb_014.htm Mike Hobbs I felt Mike unfairly accused this guy of spamming when his original post reeked more of spam than the other. After I personally replied to Mike Hobbs I was promptly given the "My way or the highway" response. Am I completely off-base here?? What I really like about TT is the open-mindedness of it's members. I guess you can't get that ANYWHERE ELSE!!
