I got a few general questions! PLZ read..
Posted November 22, 2007 - 12:59 AM
Remove Side Mirrors
Remove Signal Lights
Remove The Number Plate Bracket
And remove the two reflctors on the two forks?
Am I right?
Also do the free mods apply to the Japanese model or just the US model?
Another thing is, on many threads I'v seen people say that they have a jetting kit on the bike or in they'r signature they say that they have a jetting kit on the bike.. What I understand is that jetting kits are needed only when the bike isnt running well right? Its an adjustment or an add on?
And also some guys say that jetting has to be done in trail riding? Isnt jetting a time consuming proccess? You have to take the carb out to rejet a bike right?
Also why is jetting needed? Why cant the neccassary adjustments be done with the air screw and the fuel screw?
Sorry if thid thread looked like a exam paper lol..
Please help me as much as possible thanks,

Jetting kits are an easy way to buy a few needles and some jets, required for better performance. If You want optimal performance, then a jet kit is highly recommended.
Jetting does require you to get at the carby, but with the benefit from others, you have got a great database of jetting settings to start with. Should be pretty much spot on first go!
Jetting is required once you uncork your bike. the fuel screw cannot compensate for lean jetting.
Bottom line - get the bike and we will help you out as much as we posibally can!

So you mean to say that the Japanese Model is identical to the US model? If so SWEEET!
And also Jetting kits are an add on?
The jetting kit wouldnt add performance right? It would just give the bike tuning required to run like its supposed to?

Can you link us to the Japanese model so we can see what it looks like and what the features are?

Right now my question is, if I add a exhaust system on my bike, will I be able to tune the bike for the new exhaust through the Fuel Screw? If not what is the fuel screw for?
I think I understand what jetting does...
On the Fuel Screw FAQ, they say to check the fuel screw every race day.. My main concern right now is that more than riding the bike and having fun I will have to play with the carb??
And also the guy who imports the bikes is going to Japan on Wednesday or Thursday next week.. So basically I would have a Wr450F 2007 Model abit used or a 2008 Wr450F brand new.. If the price is ok for the brand new of course thats gonna be the go!!
I DO PRAY lol!!

I'm guessing that it is not easy to find Keihin jets in Sri Lanka so I would order the JD jet kit so that you can make any changes that are necessary.
