Stock needle setting??
Posted October 28, 2006 - 06:23 AM
I just bought a 2005 WR450...the needle in the carb is set on the 3rd clip..I was wondering what the stock setting for this clip is for this bike...it is a USA model...the last owner did a bunch of mods but couldn't tell what the stock settings are because he had another mechanic work on it...it was jetted for high alltitude 5000 ft and up...I am down in the 2400ft mark..the main jet is a 165s...so not sure of the clip location...

Since you have an adjustable needle in there, that means that it has already been changed out with maybe an 04 WR needle or maybe even a YZ needle.. I've jetted several bikes for higher altitudes and have always left the needle alone and worked more on the pilot and main jets. The 48 pilot should work fine and maybe a 165 main depending on just how high you go and how cold it gets.. But I personally have never had great success with playing with the needles postiton.. I would leave the needle alone, right in the middle..
