Could anyone please give me some advise.

I have a wr450 and has been fitted with a yoshi pipe and rejetted. It has great low and high power but burbles midrange. I've taken off the smog kit and since I dropped the needle pos to one off the bottom its become much better. It still burbles a little midrange. Im told there is a grey wire that needs to be cut.
Also the needle is pretty darn thick ?

many thanks

Yeah, cut the grey wire! Then pull one of the tuning forks off the tank if it still rings, you cut the right wire! :confused: Just kidding. Numerous threads on the speculation of honda's plight with the most dependable motors they ever built here.:lol: Oh, welcome to TT, excuse the ribbing, its an initiation thing.
