Pilot jet is long (about 1-1/4") the starter jet is short (about 3/8")
Pilot jet fits up in a recess and has the little holes on the sides.

I look in the clymer book and it states the starter jet (WR400) is a 65, I look on micro fish and the starter jet is listed between 78-82. Is the starter jet only used during start up or is it being used through out running, and which is the correct size?
What year WR400? Always go by the fiche. There will be the letters (STD) for the standard/stock size, alternate parts have a (AP). Clymer manuals should never be trusted for specifications. They are right about 50% of the time and wrong every time you do need an exact figure.

SKU: 3TJ-1494F-20-00 JET (#82) UR STD
SKU: 3TJ-1494F-20-00 JET (#82) AP
A little double talking if you ask me. But, I suspect it issupposed to be a #82. Not a real biggie unless the only time the choke works is when it is friggin' frezzing. Bike hard to start with the choke otherwise? Only time you should not need the choke is with a hot engine.

However, I think I found why it ran so bad....bad oring on the mixture screw.
Sorry for the thread steal
