A few things I would like to see..
1. YZ to WR parts match (compatible parts / year)
2. Advanced Carb Mods ( AP / BK / ACV) ???

As each bike is often subtly different due to small manufacturing variations, as well as the infinite combinations of aftermarket parts, there is no definitive algorithim to follow. Unless you have a mechanic on staff, it really pays to learn your bike and diagnose it yourself. All the advice in the world means very little when you're in middle of the woods with a bike that won't idle and no wi-fi access. Indy's chart is the best thing out there to get you in the ballpark. Beyond that, a rider has to know his bike and whether the sputter at 1/2 throttle is better remedied with the Red or Blue needle, a different clip position, a larger pilot, a smaller main, or if you just have bad gas. Depending on the bike, the temps and the elevation, it could be any one of those, or a combination. Carb tuning is truly tedious, but once you get it down, you're golden...SC

I use my 18 year old as the judge and jury when I make big changes.......he gets a real kick out of the power it cranks out.....he's 155 pounds and I'm 235. He's also pretty sensitive to details and lets me know of anything that doesn't seem right.
But you are right in saying there's infinite mods on these bikes and that is why I don't understand why folks on here recommend specific jet sizes for instance, when the guy inquiring doesn't know what jets are in it, what mods have been done or hasn't even tried riding it.
I think you would agree though that the infinite wisdom of some current posters and a LOT of posts from the past could be condensed and put in a certain spot. Maybe you moderators could make a new place for info that you all deem is adequate for keeping and put it there...I'm not refering to a new sticky for each topic...perhaps a catagory called WR400/WR425/WR450 /Keepers......just an idea.........anyway how much do you get paid.....JUST KIDDING......thankyou for doing a great job.

Being new at jetting bikes & with the complexitys of the new hi-tech carbs of today I have decided to just remove the DynoJet Wide Band off my R1 & get a bung welded into my header so I can (cheat) & see EXACTLY what my AFR is running & make changes from that..
