My 02 Wr 426 is in the shop with what the mechanics are saying is a air leak that is a little hard to find. Everything has been gone over and checks out :)
Has anyone had a weird air leak in the carb area ??? It wont idle and when you hit the throttle it bogs. Any suggestions ??? YZ timed , BK'd@.5, no lid, Big Gun Race.
I'm freakin stumped...

I remember some isues with the spacer on the clamps being too big and not letting the clams to tighten enough...

Now that you mention that, I remember hearing something about the spacers. I'll drop a line to the shop and mention that. Thanks Sabin

Removing the spacers completely took care of all my issues with too much air.
