today i tried my home made james now.
having changed my 2002 wr 400 timing for yz timing i feel i lost a good bit of bottom end lug, this i have put up with i like the extra bang from yz timing.
whith the james now plate instaled i now have my bottom end pull back and the middle bang. I say do it. I found myself getting throwen out of corners and then roketed down the straights. Lerning my bike again its cool and it cost nothing try it i think you will like it.my budy has same bike same state of tune but no james now.
We rode each others bikes and he will make his tomorow at work.
ps/chears james

I have been thinking about performing the James Now Even though my bike runs spot on.

Did you get a chance to take a plug reading yet? If so, is there any change in jetting? Also, even though you gained more torque, was the throttle response still snappy and crisp?

Thanks, Rick
