If Yamaha makes a wrr450 it will probably be heavier than the 610/630, and with cheaper parts.

On the 630 you remove the fuel tank, 1 bolt and a couple hoses and you just remove 2 bottom bolts and push the radiators forward to remove the valve cover. Once you do it once its a 15 minute job to check valves.
My Husaberg was about the same after you removed the tank it had 2 small covers to remove to check valves.
Thanks for the info.

I see you say "TE630 engine shot" in your sig line. What's the story there?
