James! Need jetting Help!
Posted September 14, 2001 - 12:40 PM
I just tried your recommended WR 400 jetting and my bike has a sumble at partial throttle (about 1/4 to 1/2). Here is what I tried:
EKN needle in 4th position
1 turn then 1.5 turns out on the air screw.
My bike is a '00 model; stock exhaust with Vor tip; YZ timing, grey wire mod.
My jetting before was 170 main, 45 pilot, 1.75 turns out on air screw.
I did the WZ timing and grey wire mod, and experienced the similar hesitation (about 1/4 throttle).
I did not have the hesitation before the YZ timing and grey wire mod.
I ride at 1,000 to 3000 feet elevation.
Think I should try going back to the 45 pilot or dropping the needle?
Sorry about posting a reply about this in your other "conversation".
Your help will be appreciated.

Have you considered the BK mod? I found that after changing my jetting I still have a hesitation just off the bottom. By adjusting the timing of the squirt and the duration, I was able to eliminate the hesitation. For my 4500 ft location the #48 was a little rich all the way down to 1/4 turn out on the fuel screw.

With a stock pilot air #75 use the #45 pilot jet and 1.75 turns. Dropping the needle by using the #3 clip is also a good idea for a next step.
