    Wr45 Surge

    At what throttle setting were you noticing the surge? 1/4 or 1/2 or full throttle. I would change out my pilot jet with a new one just in case these are bunged up a bit. Hard to clear so cheaper to replace with new ones keeping it the same size.
  2. I think I agree with you, but I have a hard time understanding your comments. Please put some punctuation into your posts.

    Wow, yeah, pilot is huge and main is too small. Where, or in what circumstances is this bog occurring?

    Winter WR, What Do You Think?

    You gotta check out Frostbites thread. He used to live in Pang Nunavet and now lives in Iqaluit I think. http://www.thumpertalk.com/forum/showthread.php?t=600548&highlight=mailing+wr This guy knows more about cold weather riding than anybody.

    All NEW 2010 YZ450f Released!

    No sense fretting about the future of the WR. I am sure we will see the 2011 or 12 WR with the same FI configuration as the YZ. And someone will have a solution for increasing the gas tank size by then.

    All NEW 2010 YZ450f Released!

    I'm diggin it too. I'd be very surprised if the WR has any major changes, but it sure would be a nice surprise if I was wrong. In the Yamaha promotional videos on their website, Stewart says he loves it, but that is what he is paid to say. Only time will tell for sure. http://www.yamaha-motor.com/sport/products/modelvideo/209/1/0/video.aspx

    Valve adjustment on the new wrf

    I wouldn't worry about the valve shimming until such time as the bike needs it. Why worry about something you are only going to do once every 3 or 4 years (if that). On the other hand, checking the valves is a skill you will want to learn how to do as you will do that more often.

    90 km commute. Too far for WR 450?

    You will likely want to regear the bike so that you can maintain those speeds at lower revs. This makes it a little less "trail" friendly. My concern would be tires. Off road knobbies may be OK for a short jaunt on pavement, but any long distance on pavement requires appropriate tires. Especially in the rain. Knobbies on wet pavement = deadly. Those Dual sport tires will make the bike even less "trail" friendly. And I would want a more comfortable seat for the extra seat time. Hmm... I hate to say this, but what you are trying to create is a bike like the DR 650. Jeez, thought I'd never ever have to say that. And you would have to gas up before coming home.

    What piece is missing from WR cylinder head?

    You guys got a point there. Well I have lots of gas to give so I just keep on giving and giving. It reminds me of a story. A SHORT LOVE STORY A man and a woman who had never met before, but who were both married to other people, found themselves assigned to the same sleeping room on a trans-continental train. Though initially embarrassed and uneasy over sharing a room, they were both very tired and fell asleep quickly, he in the upper berth and she in the lower. At 1:00 AM, the man leaned down and gently woke the woman saying ... 'Ma'am, I'm sorry to bother you, but would you be willing to reach into the closet to get me a second blanket? I'm awfully cold.' 'I have a better idea,' she replied 'Just for tonight ... let's pretend that we're married.' 'Wow! ... That's a great idea!', he exclaimed. 'Good,' she replied. ... 'Get your own f***** blanket.' After a moment of silence, ......................he farted.

    04 WR450 Jetting ?

    I think you are WAY too rich, especially the pilot. I would go back to a 48. Remember high temps, need leaner. Low temps need richer. Low elevation, need richer, high elevation need leaner. As suggested it isn't RPM it is throttle position that determines the jetting circuit you are in. When you got it cranked u are on the main and it is humming. But when you back off the WOT, you likely move back into the pilot circuit which is WAY rich. Here is a link to Eddie Sisneros's thread on how to set your pilot circuit. Follow this. http://www.thumpertalk.com/forum/showthread.php?t=327405 Re: the stuttering/blubbering. You can minimize this via jetting but chances are you will never be able to eliminate it. The TPS can add to this as well as the CDI. However, incorrect jetting just excacerbates the issues. Do a search on jetting in this forum and the jetting forum. Read read read. There are plenty of people that have the same issues you do. Please keep us posted.

    What piece is missing from WR cylinder head?

    Yeah, remember to give the helpful guys like PBDBlue some gas. ie. add to their reputation by clicking on the gas tank in the upper right hand corner of their post. I just gave some to pbdblue.

    I doubt my pack job is gonna work.

    I rest my beer gut on the gas tank when sitting. Takes the stress off the subframe.

    Devol Radiotor guards suck!!!

    Wow, a 9 year old thread keeps on going. I may have answered here already but... I too have Devol radiator guards. Cost me $25. They have been FANTASTIC but I don't run into trees very often.
