I found this in the stickies...

Might help out... also, if you read here it may help also:

I am by no means an experienced rider / maintainer... but have read up a lot on my bike ('99 WR400) and been thru most of the info I could find on this site.

Hope this helps! Enjoy the new set of wheels, I wish I could affort a shiny new one :lol: but I still love the old dirty beast I got... a new one would be more machine than I could likely handle anyhow! :thumbsup:

The bike comes very lean from the factory to meet emissions. Not sure what was done on yours to richen it up but it sounds as though the jetting is off. You can play with YZ needles and pilot jets or if you prefer the quick and easy solution go with a JD kit.
