So I got a 2006 YZ450F and Im kinda new to the whole four stroke thing and I have done everything to try and get rid of this hesitation when the throttle is cracked open. And it also pops and stumbles when the throttle is held constant no matter the throttle position. I have tried different pilot jets with no change and I know its the right size because the fuel screw is out 3 turns. I moved the needle up and down two positions and it did nothing either. Cleaned the carb and set the float height to the correct height and still nothing. Ive tried the fuel screw in and out and neither helps. New spark plug and its jetted like perfectly according to the color. I also put in a new needle holder in and the slide plate and seal are good. Made sure the float needle wasnt stuck and that the floats didnt have stuff in them. I cant figure it out for the life of me Ive searched all over the forums for like 3 weeks every day and cant find anything. I did find one person that said that the reason these bikes are jetted so lean on the pilot is because the AP squirt is huge. I checked and it does work and the squirt is huge. So the guy said that if you try and make the decel popping go away with a richer pilot that it makes it crazy rich at the crack of the throttle but mine does it anywhere between 1/8th of a throttle to WOT when the throttle is held constant. If I just open her up it runs perfect. Oh and I forgot to mention that I tried unplugging the TPS as well and no change. This all started after one day I was warming up my bike to go riding and I let it get warm and gave it a rev and it the rpms went up and it made a big pop like a backfire and died and then it would not start even hill starting it. Then I tried one last time to hill start it after I kicked for 15 minutes and it started and ran like crap and would only stay running if I gave it gas. So I thought must of jumped timing checked it and sure enough it did. Reset the timing and checked valve clearance while I was in there and every valve was in spec. So I put in a new spark plug and put it together. Started first kick and had WAYYY more power than it had when I bought it but then this crap started happening. The one thing I havent checked is my timing to see if I had it wrong by one tooth or so. But i would thing that would make it run like crap everywhere. And I dont think its jetting cuz nothing I change jetting wise helps or makes it worse. Any Ideas?
