Just thought I'd do an intro!
I've just bought a WR 400 (2000), What a £$&*£$ animal of a bike, maybe I should sell my Gixxer 750 and supermoto another WR?
Unfortunately I spilt it down the road after only owning it 2 days, I guess riding on the road on crosser tires wasn't the best idea, I hit a patch of diesel and the thing just folded. Thankfully both myself and the bike survived with minor injuries.
I don't really know to much about these bikes so I guess from time to time you may get some dumb ass questions from me!
One thing which is bugging me is this back firing and stalling when i give it a fist full, having read a similar post on the forum I guess it needs re jetting? (competition can fitted)
Catch ya later folks!

Wicked first post.
Hello and welcome....glad you like the bike, mine backfires a tad too, think its to do with the over run....sounds good though dunnit.....twins and singles tend to do that a fair bit.
If its stalling then maybe you should get it looked at, sure some tech chimps will be along in a moment.
Good to have another UK WR rider here though!

I've had it looked at by a mate who's a spanner, he thinks the carb just needs stripping down and cleaning and maybe re jetting? He's gonna do it this saturday, I'll let ya know if it's cured!

There is a company called Dial-a-Jet that makes adjustable "leak jets" that you install in your air boot that let you go to different altitudes and temperatures and whatnot, and all you have to do is turn a knob to richen or lean the whole throttle range, it supposedly fills in "dead spots" too.
I would think that this MIGHT cure the bog problem on the older bikes.
