It's been a few years since I've been on a bike so please forgive my ignorance. I'm now riding a '00 WR400.
(1) When you talk of removing the air box cover are you refering to the entire lid or just the smaller "snorkel" piece where the air currently is let in??

(2) I tried removing the entire lid, the exhaust baffle and put in the shorter YZ throttle stop. I haven't had a chance to ride her much since, but on the maiden voyage
there was a noticable hesitation when I first cracked the throttle (she almost died)unless I rolled the power on slowly. I'm assuming a jetting problem but wasn't sure if a complete re-jet was in order or if there may be a more simple fix.
I'm planning on going with the YZ timing and a new pipe/silencer soon so if a complete re-jet is on order maybe I should just deal with it for now as I'm assuming another re-jet after the timing and pipe mods are complete.

Thanks in advance - Jerry

1- the entire lid

2- WR's and YZ's are very sensitive when it comes to intake or exhaust changes.

I left the lid in place however; I used a utility knife and removed all but the perimeter of the lid. My logic is that by leaving the lid rim, I'll have a better chance of keeping water out that runs down between my seat/tank junction. Could be crap, just my .02 cents.

I have also removed my baffle and my jetting is just fine.
