    What a pain in the A$$!

    whats the easiest way to get to the carb? my 05 was easy.the 09 is horrible. take off the swingarm subframe and shock? here in WV the stock jetting works well. all free mods and baffle out, i will get a small pop on decel but thats about it
  4. it happened to my 05 at 36k miles, it was running at normal temps also. i never even noticed it til i had to replace 4th gear. you can see it in the wr 450 trasmission forum somewhere.
