I've got the same problem and I'm at 1500'. 155 main, YZ needle clip position 5, 2 turns out on fuel mixture screw. I plan on going to a 48 pilot and up one on the clip. I posted a thread a few weeks back but no one responded. :)

You may want to look at the timing of your accelerator pump.

I am running a 160 main and 50 pilot with the fuel screw out about 2 turns. I generaly ride anywhere from 0-3000ft. and the bike seems to work great everywhere.

Go in on the fuel screw to 1-1/2 out. Bring the squirt screw out 1/2 turn. Put a YZ needle in it at -4.
