I just bought the GYT-R insert for my bike Saturday - rode with it yesterday! It is reasonable on sound and did not restrict my bike as much as I thought it would. Acutally - couldn't tell much difference, because it was also muddy out yesterday and we didn't have any hills to power through where we were riding at. (I removed the stock baffle over a year ago and lost it...)
Do you ride at Wayne National Forest or the strip pits - Perry State Forest?

I was really happy with the sound levels with the GYTR in there, but it was definitely running lean and I didn't want to take a chance on heating her up too much, so I put the stocker back in until I could get some jets.
Let me know if you want to hook up and go riding sometime. I think I'm taking my daughter down to Happy Hollow in the next few weekends so she can get her feet wet riding somewhere other than our yard and the farm fields around here. -Jerry

I did the free mods and put in the JD kit with the 170 main on my '98 WR400. Runs great up here in MI.
By the way, my son has a couple of baseball tournaments in OH this year. One in Columbus and one in Cincinnati. I was thinking of putting our bikes in the truck and seeing how the tournaments go. Any thoughts for so-so rider and his 11 year old?

I have a '99 WR as well, with a "GYTR"-type insert in the end (no name on it...), and all the packing and baffles removed. I have the following jetting setup:
Main Jet: 180 (stock is 168)
Needle: OBVDR (YZ400, stock WR is OBDTM)
Clip: 5 of 7 from the top (stock is 3 with WR needle)
Pilot screw: 1 1/4 (stock)
Starter Jet: 60 (stock)
Pilot Jet: 48 (stock is 45)
Main Air Jet: 200 (stock)
Pilot Air Jet: 75 (stock)
I tried running my bike w/o the insert and she ran like crap. If you can get your bike close to what I have, I bet you'll be pretty close. I say close, because you may still have the innards in your pipe. I took the cap off of mine and she's clean all the way down to where the mid pipe mounts.

TCM, get in touch with me when the tourneys get closer. For the Columbus Tourney you could ride at Wayne or Perry County, I'd suggest Perry for a short trip with a younger fella. While down in Cincy, You aren't too far from Happy Hollow in Hillsboro. It's a smaller place, but still lots of fun. It's like 8 bucks a piece or 2 for 15 at Happy Hollow. At Perry you need a state sticker. I'm not sure how they handle things for out-of-staters. Heck, I may come to the baseball tourney depending on when/where it is!

"USSSA Invitational" is in Cincinnati July 19 - 22.
I'm not sure of the exact location. I'm thinking of loading the bikes into the truck and see what happens. A lot of these tournaments guarantee 3 games, 1 on Friday and 2 on Saturday. If you don't win 2 your usually done. I don't mind watching the remaining games and if I have to pay for the motel I'll stay, but if I can go riding that would be even better.
I'll PM when it gets closer and get more details.
