A little background:

EMN#5, ELN#4.5, EKN#4, and EJN#3.5 are all equivalent.

EMP#5, ELP#4.5, EKP#4, and EJP#3.5 are all equivalent also and match the stock YZ250 & YZ426

All 8 of the carb needles above are extremely close depending on the clip position used.


For the 400/426 I would prefer the ELN#4 as an all around choice. Secondly, with the ELP try #5 clip with a reduced pump stroke and #4 with otherwise stock jetting.

My '00WR400 ran great with:
#48 pilot
#100 pilot air
1 turn
EKP#4 (nearly same as stock '01YZ426 EJP#4)
#170 main
#200 main air
.5 second accel pump (BK Mod)
YZ timed, YZ exhaust

Hey James thanks for the complete reply.1 more thing on the o1' 426s does the b-k or the p-38 help improve performance?
