    which is the best tank the Zip TY 3.25L tank bigger capacity than stock but apparently better or the stock yzf 8L tank??? any other tank suggestions coz i dont ever use all my fuel and the tank is so damn big and bulky... i was thinking the Zip Ty (only $225) one but i think u also have 2 move the hot start??? what r u guys running coz this stock tank is just stupid...

    Just a few questions... What does the airbox snorkl look like??? when i take the seat off i can see the air filter it looks the same as my old 2 stroke... does this mean it has been done??? Also i have a full pro-circuit exhust and it runs great. wondering can u cut the grey wire without having to do anything else to the bike??? can i f#@k anything up by doing this as i like how it is running Help appreciated

    WR tanks Vs YZF tanks, Which is it???

    FTD That looks like the go so slam one of those baby's on with a sticker kit and YZ seat and ill be right... nice bike too. Thanx for all the advice... I just read on the site that it raises the seat height??? ur link. but the fuel sits lower ie. better handling... did you notice the height difference? I'm basicly on 6ft mybe bit taller reassure me coz i orsered it...please.

    oh ok thanks for that boys... i might do that grey wire mod and YZ throttle stop......So.... if i wanted the auto-decomp and the YZ cam (timing) then i would buy a 03 YZF Cam?? "If you want auto-compression release AND YZF timing, you need a '03 YZF cam" ThumperFaq Is this true and do i need to muck around with anything else after these mods have been done like jetting ect??? Also how much for a )# YZF cam?? Sorry for the newby questions 2 Strokes are soo much easier!!

    I am a new owner of a WR426 01 from a YZ250 and was reading about these free mods... I am going to do the airbox lid, YZ throttle stop and was also thinking of the YZ cam and auto-decomp?? NOT the grey wire...will this matter??? Also how much is the yz cam and auto-decomp where from in Aus can i get my hands on one and does anything else need to be done 2 the bike if i decided to do it??? AND the obviouse questions is; is it worth the money? The bike already has a full Pro-circuit exhust Any help much appreciated
