Model: 03 YZ450F
Edit Revision Date: 9/19/13
Main Jet: 175
Pilot Jet: 50
Starter Jet: 72
Leak Jet (if any):
Fuel screw/Setting: Moose(?) 2.5 turns out
Needle/Position: unknown
Filter: stock foam
Pipe/muffler: C4M full exhaust with header
Altitude Range: 600'
Temp Range: 60- 80's
Humidity Range:

Comments: Should be rich by the numbers, but actually runs great.  Finally tuned to where it will start good hot and cold, crisp throttle response, hot-start lever needed when hot (this is a first).  Unknown history of the bike means it may have cams and/or a big bore kit, but I don't know how to tell.  Seems to have more power than my friends' newer YZ450Fs (05, 06, 09)...
