G'day guys, i'm wondering if someone can explain to me the CR500 jetting specs i obtained from the Pro Circuit website that i have highlighted?

Are the details listed beside CR500 the stock jetting specs? and the details beside Pro Circuit the jetting specs if a pro circuit pipe is applied to the bike?

What does STD mean? Standard?

What does POS mean?

and which screw are they referring to for the 1 1/2?

Please forgive my ignorance, i have never gotten into the jetting side of things.

Thanks in advance.

Andy.

I answered inside the quote in bold
This is for the CR5 with the stock PJ carb on it, Service Honda mounts a 39.5 PWK carb on their bikes so jetting/ jet numbers will be different

Blue haze,

FWIW, I've just finished rejetting a 2000 stock 500 (fmf gnarly, fresh top end and the head shaved for a bit more compression)

I tried the fmf jetting specs but got pinging at 1/4 throttle and a slightly lean feel.
I went to 58 pilot, position 4 standard needle and a 172 main.
This was better all around and what I'm going to to ride with for a while.
This is for trail riding, 70f, sea level, premium fuel,40:1.

500s are new to me so others on this forum are more experienced but I share my specs as you in australia too.

You should use the chart as a GUIDE only. I live on the east coast of the US and found that the jetting recommendations are too rich for my area. We have a lot of humidity which makes the need to run leaner. You need to experiment for the best results. Good luck.
