how come i hear all the post 01 yamahas and all the hondas bouncing off the rev limiter like mad, and when mine hits it its so slow? i have a 00 yz426.
when they jump its like pop.pop.pop.pop...
mine is like pop.... pop.... pop...
sometimes it doesnt even bounce. is it jetting or are the pre 01 4 strokes have a slow rev limiter?

I think you need a new powerband. Or at least a rebuild on your kinutin valve...

The rev limiter keeps your motor from spinning to fast and self destructing, you shouldn't be spending any time listening to the rev limiter do its thing. Why the concern?
