rough choppy sputtery acceleration 1/8 to 1/2 thro
Posted December 12, 2003 - 07:24 PM
Full throttle power is great.I know its gotta be jetting.
does anybody have a good combo to run with
Stock pipe /vortip
What exactly does the grey wire controll?

Have you changed anything, is your fuel fresh? If it ran well before and the current temps. are lower you are probable lean and should raise the needle a clip. Raise the needle by lowering the clip.
The gray wire is a ground that effects the ignition timing. The WR has it the YZF does not. Some disconnect is and like it, others don't notice a difference. Read this
The mods for the 250 and 426 are the same.

Help I have an 01wr426 that wont accel smoothly.
Try to pinpoint the throttle position relative to the rough running problem you are having, if it is a jetting problem then this will help identify the jetting circuit in the carb that is responsible. If it won't accelerate smoothly when you really whack it open it may be clip position.
But once you ucork (the exhaust) and uncover (the airbox) the motor is way more YZ than WR, and IMO should be jetted accordingly. If you have $14 to spare buy an '01 YZ needle and try it on clip 4 (you should also try a 165 main). Based on my own experience w/ WRs you will be impressed (don't mean you will like it, but you will notice the difference, I promise).
The grey wire will also make a difference but it is subtle compared to the problems you seem to be experiencing. IMO. I think that cutting the grey wire alters the ignition timing curve in some way, not sure (anyone?).
If you want to experiment for yourself I'd suggest dropping the clip one notch and seeing what kind of diffrence that makes, but I still stand by my statement that you will prefer the way it runs with the YZF needle, regardless of the source of your problem.
Hope this helps.
