Which carb path to follow for 99 WR400?
Posted April 05, 2009 - 09:22 PM
The JD jet kit and shop fees would probably already run about $300:banghead:
If I went with a new carb...what would the original one sell for if it is in good condition...just needing cleaning?
Thanks so much for the help.

You might try a couple of things on your own...first, cleaning a carb and changing jets is easy...save some bucks and do it yourself! The manual tells you how. Are you sure you have the stareting drill down? Normally, once you have the drill down, these bikes aren't that hard to start. Third, try a new plug. When my 426 gets a bit stubborn, that usually does the trick. While you are swapping the plug (and have the tank off), you may want to run a quick compression check. The bike is a bit older, and worn rings will make it hard to start (does it smoke or burn any oil?)what condition are the valves in? I realize it's a 400 and the SS valves don't wear like the Ti ones do, but really hard starting can be a sign that the valves are hanging open a bit. All this stuff is easy for the backyard mechanic to do with very minimal tools. Once you've checked the obvious, then it may be time to play with jetting a bit. Another thing...are you sure the hot start hoses aren't cracked and checked, and that the hot start is working?
