'04 WR450 Carb is a little rough-Mod Suggestions Anyone?
Posted July 18, 2008 - 07:50 PM
What is the best way to boost power and make it consistent without bucking. I have spent at least 60 hours messing with the carb and just want it fixed. I also just started a new job that is eating all my time.
Is there a great kit that will cure my woes? Is the QS2 the answer? Power Now? How about Tokyo Mods? I am not even sure what they are or what they do. All I know is that riding is about the funnest thing I can do with my cloths on and I would rather be riding a smooth, powerful, responsive bike than fixing one.
Your help is always appreciated!!!!!!

One of my major problems is stalling at low RPM. This is probably becuase I am still learning to negotiate the trails and at low speed it seems tough to keep the RPMs high enough. A buddy of mine recommends a heavier flywheel. Is that the only answer or will the needle, the throttle stop or the gray wire help me keep the thing running?

You might want to run a one tooth small counter shaft sprocket. That'll let you go slow, keep the rev's up and reduce the need for constant clutching. When your speeds increase, pop the stocker back on. OEM flywheel is reasonably heavy to begin with.
I think you will be shocked at the performance gain the throttle stop and gray wire do, but they will do little for you in the slow stuff.

This week I am also going to try the JamesNow mod. It looks like TT is all for it.
