Heard a lot of good things about Chad Watts and his work. He was long time RC mechanic and has won many championships.. Happens to have a shop close to my home so I figure I'll give him a try. He's not the cheapest by any means but hey... He buids RACE bikes. I am around 195 lbs and can ride a little aggressively at times. The Stock WR suspension was WAY too soft for me. I do like to re-live my younger motocross days of doubles and table tops from time to time. I'm in the process of modifying my WR to be more... how should I say... a cross breed if you will. In my opinion a YZ 450 with a WR tranny and electric start is the ultimate machine! So thats where I'm headed. So far totally rebuilt the suspension, front and rear, changed the rear spring rate and preload settings, upgraded the base valve bolts in the forks as these are 90's technology on my '09 and re-valved/ pre-load spacers in the forks as well. Chad Watts has a top secret Carburetor mod thats for the FCR carbs so all he will tell me is the jet sizes and needle size. But aparently it does NOT involve any machining. Changed my gearing from a 13/50 to a 14/53 which are close ratios but changes spreads the transmission ratios out a bit more. The supposed effect will be the ability to ride 2nd and 3rd insted of 3rd and 4th. 13/50= 3.846 ratio and 14/53= 3.785. This will actually give me a tinge more top end but shouldn't take anything away from the bottom end as I gained some bottom end grunt from the carburetor mod. I am running a Lexx slip on with the stock header at this time. The Lexx does ok but I do plan on going with a full FMF system at some point. I have not yet had a chance to ride this beast and I'm absolutely dying to saddle her up!!! I work out of state on a rotational shift so she'll be sitting patiently when I arrive... Let me know what yo guys think and what mods you all have done... Braaap Braaap Next project... YZ 250 2 stroke woods bike!!
