I just purchased a new 05 WR450 today. Got it home, took it for a ride and needless to say I am VERY disappointed. This stock bike is a pig. After all of the posts and reviews that I have read, the WR is suppose to flat out rip. My dads DRZ400 will kill this thing. I was seriously considering the Honda 450X and maybe should have gone that route instead. With that said, just how big of difference is there when the throttle stop is removed, the grey wire cut, etc? Do all of the bike testers that review these things for the magazines do the mods so they can compare it to other bikes? Because, if this is it, I've got a dud and I will go get the 450X. Any input will be greatly appreciated.
