So for those of you that don't know, these WR's come from the factory fairly neutered compared to their YZ big brothers. Luckily, a little work is all it takes to un-cork the power that is hidden. I suppose Yamaha neuters these bikes a little bit in order to make them more trail friendlly. The WR's and the YZ's basically have the same engine except for the cams, stator/ignition and transmission.

One of the free mods i've done this past weekend was to disconnect the TPS. Yamaha makes some of the best bikes and engines out there (2nd to Honda, lol) but for some reason it seems they forgot to put some R&D in this little detail on these bikes. What I originally thought was a needed carb tuning turned out to be the TPS. It causes the bike to feel like it sputters/cuts out when at constant throttle or cruising. You don't notice it when your on and off the throttle, especially when offroad. But for a street application, this needs to be addressed.

Literally just had to disconnect where there's a plug close to the carb on the left hand side of the bike. Then taped up with electrical tape and zip tie out of the way. This will not hurt the bike in any way according to what i've read.

I couldn't believe how much better the bike ran afterwards. Took it for a nice hour long ride around my area which included some offroad action as well. Handled alot better offroad than I though with the pilot powers. lol.


I'll post up when I do the rest of the free/dirt cheap mods.

Yep. Fully street legal. I think i'll probably order a new front fender next. Hasn't been a necessity so far but since i've got all the big things out of the way, I can start considering the smaller details like the fender, hand guards, graphics, etc.

Almost all of the riding i've been able to do is to and from work. Between a preggo wife, work, xmas shopping, house work/nursery work/yard work and the weather, riding the wheels off this thing hasn't been plentiful.

You just wait till that baby gets here, might as well drain the tank, put the trickle charger on it and cover it up! Looking good though!

Indeed it's been a slow build. You could say the bike is "finished" but i'm still gonna post up when I add some parts or make some changes.

Easily visible and easy to read during the day and bright at night.
