Checked the plug and it was a blackish colour.
Had the carby bowl off and checked the main, pilot and needle jets..seemed OK. Information I know is running a 'Stayintune' pipe and 42 pilot jet,65 starter jet,165s needle jet. Sorry ...only learning about these things from this great site.

Have you checked the fuel filter in the gas tank?

It will do exactly what you are describing if it is pluged.

tctrailrider, i checked the fuel filter in the petrol tank, unclogged it and had no affect, it was fairly plogged up though. thanx
lewichris, im pretty sure i dont have a dual sport kit, thanx
yzman, petrol is getting to the carb with ease, i have vhecked it many times. i did notice a while ago that the engine breather hose has a restrited pathway so i got some cable ties onto it, it is a little better now but i will keep an eye on it , thanx mate
Also, does anyone have any suggestions for carb settings on my Wr400, staintune pipe, lid off, throttle stop removed, 42 pilot jet,65 starter jet,165s needle jet, not sure of clip position, will have a look though? thanx

what is this buisness about a grey wire ?? YZ timed ey, my bike already goes great but i would like the extra zing ofcoarse. Is YZ timed much of a hasle to change to? i have seen on web sites how to do it. Im at sea level, i would have to change my jets though i think? Are jets expensive? WOuld i have to redail my air and fuel screws plus clip setting?

Basically, its just unplugging a wire the comes out of your CDI (black box).
I just unplugged it and left it. Makes my sig line look cooler.
I was very nervous to do the YZ timing change too, but if you follow the instructions step by step and watch out for those half moon cam cap retainers that like to fall out when you pull the cam caps off, then you will be home free.
Just make sure when and if you do it, you have plenty of free time ahead (no races/rides coming up). Its one of those things that if you know what your doing you could do it in 30 minutes, but if you dont, then you want to take plenty of time and ask lots of questions. Believe me, its worth it.
It will unleash the monster within.
I have heard some say that you need to re-jet to YZ specs when you go to YZ timing and others have been fine with WR timing. I guess it varies from bike to bike.
Mine kept fouling plugs until I went to YZ jetting.
Jets arent that expensive in comparision to what you get out of the bike when you are finished. Theres not one mod that you can buy on the market that will give you the open power of YZ timing/jetting IMO. I'd say all the jets that you will need to run yz jetting will cost about $30 minus shipping.
WOuld i have to redail my air and fuel screws plus clip setting?
Im not sure I know what you mean by redial. But yes, you have to change the needle clip setting. As a matter of fact, you dont just change the clip poisition. Along with all the jetting comes a new needle!
