Not looking for any thing drasitc like injection, I want them to dump some weight and install a real Wide Ratio 6 speed box.

    06 WR450 Jetting

    Hi My mate has got a 06 WR450 And his dealership left all the restrictors in (and loose bolts) after he payed $600 dealer delivery fee!! We have removed all the restrictors (we hope) and now we will have to re jet..?? Does anybody know what the jetting specs are with all the restrictors removed ( air box exhaust and exhaust tip). As another Yamaha dealer wants $180 to re jet the bike, so I said I will have a crack at it..... P.S. Dont go to City Yamaha in Melbourne....And if you did check your bike!! LL

    Checking Float Level 06 WR250

    Hi just got back from a ride. And no fouled plugs, the plug is nice and brown, and the bike rips!!! My float level was way out...... I have a FMF gnarly pipe that I would like to put on, would I have to change jetting? Generally would you go richer or leaner with jetting for an aftermarket pipe?? #4 slide PJ:27.5 Main:390 Needle:60 3rd clip Thanks L

    What Oil and Ratio

    Hi I use maxima 927 06 WR250 @ 40:1 Maxima 927 helps protect bearings from rust, I only get to ride twice a month. full synth oils promote crank corrosion. Silkoline comp 2 is another good oil has something on the back about corrosion protection for intermitant use. And that castor smell you will love it...
