Taking my bike in to get YZ timed. What do you think if I have the shop start with your jetting bench marks, living here in Chicagoland ILL. Also I did the grey wire mod and it produced a bad hesitation from 0-1/4 throttle, and got worse when I put the cork back in the exhaust ( trying for stealth here in town, COPS). But seemed to pull better after 1/4 throttle. So I reconnected the grey wire till after YZ timing. I'm new to dirt bike riding and this hole thumper bussiness which I'm starting to LOVE. Any help would be great.

Thanks,

pete

Sorry dude, thought I replied to this. Yes, you can use my jetting for a baseline on your 99 and YZ timing.

Remember to make all your adjustments and gather feedback, once the bike is fully warmed up (at least 15 minutes)

I have not done the grey wire thing, my bike is scary enough :)

Bill,

Is the extra power worth the effort, I see alot of jetting problem listed in this forum :). Don't need that trouble, I just want to ride, and of course with as much power as i can get. My brother-in-law has a YZ 125 and would love for him to just eat my dust :D.

Thanks for your help as always,

Pete

Dub-R,

I waited for quite a while before I changed my jetting and timing. After I bought my pipe the jetting was a nightmare to say the least. For a while I was going to buy stock in NGK, I was fouling so many plugs :)

I just hung around while James Dean, Taffy, Clark Mason and others came up with a proven baseline configuration for YZ timed bikes. Then with the help of mcarp, Kevin in NH, mike68, npuza and several barley pops. We changed my bike to YZ timing and the basic jetting in my signature. From there, I just went up one on the pilot, to the 50 and have not touched it since.

It starts great, has a very slightly softer (YZ timing) bottom, with no burrbling or hesitation, pulls hard and rips from just before the mid and screams to the top. I wished, I had done the mods sooner.

Go for it :D

Bill

Definitely would recommend YZ timing! Like Bill, I had more jetting problems in the stock WR configuration. YZ time seens to be easier to dial in
The performance difference is quite real! Go for it!

Im jetted pretty close to Bill--

All right you got me excited for -- MORE POWER :). Now how about some part#'s for the 99 WR, I see alot of part#'s flying and I want to make sure I order the right ones so I can do everything at once. My bike runs really good now. I can't wait... my brother-in-law has a YZ 125 and is going to get a good old fashion butt kicking. Everyone has been great and I really appreciate all the help!!!!!!! :D

Dub-R,

I also should include telling you that the bike has been de-octopussed. You'll find the instuctions in the Tech section of TT.

In doing this, I switched to the 100 pilot air jet and 65 start jet.

Might as well go all the way and eliminate the chance of air leaks by de-octopussing.

Hey Bro,
The YZ timing is a really easy mod to do yourself, and unless you are TOTALY NOT mechanicaly inclined you can do it in an hour in your garage, if you would like step by step instructions on how I did mine (2 nights ago) then ask and I will be glad to walk you through it, better yet if you want phone support I will email you my phone #.
DONT pay to have this done somewhere unless you are totaly wig'd about doing it your self.

It means that it is registered (plate is on its way from DMV) but not all the "legal" stuff is there, for example I have turn signals mounted but they arent hooked up, and I dont have a working horn, other than that I have an Acerbis mirror (one of those ones that is barely a mirror).
