Need jetting settings for Rampart Motorcycle Range in Colorado for this weekend
Posted April 30, 2001 - 05:52 PM
Going riding at Rampart Motorcycle Range in Colorado for the first time on my Stock 98 WR400 and asking for Jetting tips. For those of you not familiar with this area the altitude is around 7,000 to 9,000 feet. I purchased this bike used this winter and my book has the following settings written in by hand from the previous owner (Unkown).
Needle 2nd position
They seem kinda lean to me, what are everyone's thoughts? I don't want to check my plug anymore than I have to.

I'll try and remember my settings though.
Your clip position of #2 is fine. Most of us Colorado guys dropped the clip from #3 to #2 to lean it out in the middle.
Your 162 is a bit lean but would work OK. I think you could go to a 165 or 168 if I recall.
Your pilot isn't correct. The WR comes with a 45 pilot. With my stock timing, I leaned it out to a 42 pilot because I was fouling plugs on long downhills. But I was the only one of us Colorado boys that had to do that. But even so, my 45 pilot worked fine at Rampart. I was having trouble on higher stuff than that.
Good luck. You'll love that bike at Rampart!

Enjoy it this weekend. The trails should be in great shape. We are due for some rain later this week that will only help. The best riding up there is right after a rain. There aren’t too many roots and no dust in the wet sand.
Hopefully you are visiting with friends that know the area. If not, a map is a necessity. You can get them at the Giddy-Up-Go store, the gas station in Sedalia or possibly at the Sprucewood bar . Ask nicely or that Kraut will bite your head off
We drove by there last weekend and it was a ZOO! Be very careful of head-on collisions, ATVs and mini-bikes.
