Easy midrange flatspot fix
Posted June 06, 2001 - 05:45 AM
Under the gas tank there is a black connector with 2 wires going into it. 1-solid grey/1-black & grey.
Disconnect the solid grey wire, seal up connections with Elect.tape or silicon. This wire is for a rev limitor that Yamaha has,to pass emissions. The other wire is the kill button. This should clean up a lot of the trouble owners are having with flatspots, jetting fixes that have no effect, etc....
This fix came from a source that spends a lot of time testing/racing for big blue. Hope this helps......

Also, I don't seem to have a flatspot. With YZ timing and good jetting, it revs so darn fast the midrange only lasts 1/2 second!

help me understand something -- how does toying with the rev limiter change the behaviour of the engine in the midrange (which by definition is below the engine's rev limit, some would say it's around 1/2 of the rev limit)?

This fix is working on 2001WR250s from the WR/YZ250 post under "Whats wrong with the WRs"
Has anyone attempted to remove/disconnect the grey wire on a 2001 WR426 yet?????What results have been found??????.
I believe that this should clean up a lot of problems people are having with "Patchy Midrange issues", that jetting does not cure.
Also, there is a reason the non-US spec WR's don't have this issue --- they do not have the emission restrictions we do. That is why this grey wire is only applicable for US spec bikes. I do not think that any damage will occur - by disconnecting this wire. Why?
Because the non-US spec bikes do not have this & they are not floating Valves or blowing up.....
