I just picked up a '98 WR400, it came with extra sprockets and chain.

Sprockets are 14/49t The currect rear is 50t and I have taken the front cog gaurd off to see what it is. Whats stock?

Also, the bike needed a new plug when I picked it up. It had been sitting for about 3-4 months. New plug, started right up, but the old one was rather foul looking. Is this bike way to rich? I'm ass-uming 4-Strokes dont foul like 2-smokes.

14-50 are stock sprockets and no, your bike shouldn't foul plugs like a 2 stroke. I've had a plug last 14 months.

Right on. Thanks.

Checked the air filter.. VERY dirty. Most likely it was running rather rich.

Got two of them. One is punched out to 426 and the other 444. The weight is not an isue with me and with the Rekluse stalling (and hence re-starting) is not an issue. Frankly, between the auto-decomp cam and Rekluse, I can't see any reason to upgrade. And more importantly both are plated which is a bonus in this state.
