Current situation: 1999 WR 400
Main jet: 172 (Have tried 165-175)
Pilot: 45 (have tried 48)
Fuel Screw: 1 1/2 turns out (no effect what so ever as to what setting)
Needle: OBDVR raised to 5th clip position (tried 3rd, 4th, 5th)
Grey wire cut
Octopus removed, holes plugged MAJ #100
Air box lid removed
Stock exhaust with vortip insert
Regardless what jetting combo I am using:
Bike starts first kick
Midrange sucks (burbling or popping sounds)
Top end sucks (burbling sound)
Also, at midrange, the bike sounds like it is whistling --- is this an air leak???
I need help with jetting.

Sounds like you are running too rich. I guess that Tempe is no higher than 1000' elevation?? Pump gas or race fuel?? Try these setting as a baseline and you can fine tune from there:
needle stock clip or one clip leaner
fuel screw 1 turn out
This should get you in the ball park. If the fuel screw has no effect when turning it in or out you are too rich on the pilot.
Make sure your air filter is clean and not over oiled, your gas is fresh and you keep an open mind while playing with the jetting.
