anybody out there have any advice for me on a jetting problem I have an 06 yz 450 and my fuel screw kept falling out Because I had to back it out so far so I changed My main jet to a 170 and my pilot jet from a #42 to a #45 It had helped it stop popping and it runs a bit better the only problem I am having is It has a very slight hesitation right when I hit the throttle it almost bogs for a second before it hits I am also running a FMF factory 4.1 exhaust sys. any advice would be greatly appreciated.

I'm running a 50 pilot jet/ 168 main/ NFLR needle. I have WB pro exhaust on a 06. I think Pro Circuit recomended a 48.

I am running 48 pilot and 165 main in CT at sea level. Will go to 45 pilot in spring (wow soon) No hesitation. Also remember if this is your first four stroke you will need to learn how to roll the throttle rather than snap it open
