WR400 - How to jet - Guide?
Posted September 22, 2008 - 09:32 PM
Well after a little research here on TT I've concluded that I'm running to 'rich'. I'm relatively new to this bike; well to be honest I'm pretty new to enduro bikes all together. What I'm after is a bit of a 'physical' guide, preferably with a picture or two on how to, and what to jet. I've played around with old farm bikes a bit but I'd rather not mess around or experiment with this toy unless I know what I'm doing. Anyway this 'guide' could include whether I need to remove the carby from the bike, and if so what needs to be removed exactly. Is there any easy way or short cuts to do it? Where abouts the jets are that I need to adjust and how I'm supposed to adjust them? As I said earlier I'm quite a quick learner and don't think I'll have any problems with a little bit of direction from my fellow TT members
On another note lately my rear suspension has started squeaking rather badly as if it needs to be oiled or greased. If that's the case is there any particular part that needs to be greased/oiled? And if so what grease/oil should I use? If the problems a little more serious and I'm going to have to remove the rear shocker, whether that be to replace it or clean/oil it, what exactly needs to be removed to get it out?
I know I'm asking a lot but I havn't managed to find the information anywhere else, and I'd really like to understand my bike a bit better so I can do all of this myself in the future
If anyone can help me out I'd extremely grateful
Edit: As far as I know my bike is pretty much stock. The only mods I'm aware of is the Yoshimura RS3 full system that I recently installed, and according to the previous owner YZ Jets have also been installed

Well I managed to get out the carb with few hassles, and I thought I'd begin with the basic jet needle clip position. At the moment I'd just like to stop the plug from fouling up every few rides so going by the service manual I shifted the jet needle clip up a notch to make it leaner. Hopefully this does the trick for now. I think I'll play around with the other jets soon enough anyway, but for the moment I'll stick with this. The bike seems to be running smoother but I guess a few more rides will let me know for sure
