my last bike was a 97 xr 400. loved it, kind of a tank but reliable as hell. easy to ride and handle. hopped on my 04 wr450 for the first time yesterday........ i've been fixing everything wrong with it the last 3 months, it was worth the wait it fn rips! too hard on the throttle and things get squirrelly real quick! i did the mods i found on here, its a wicked bike. i'm into it for 2700 bucks, so far worth every penny. thanks for the info on thumpertalk, great site!
