My bikes problems are as follows:
1)It bogs for a split second when at low to mid rpm and I wack the throttle to get the frount end up and over say a rut.
2)at 95 to 100 mph WFO it acts like it's hitting the rev limiter but the gray wire has been removed.
3)the head pipe glows like moltan lava all the way to the muffler pipe joint if it idels for even 30 seconds.
Ok before I get all advise of what I should not due,
I know your not suposed to let it idel
I only did the top speed run twice just to see what it would do.
Thanks for any positive advise you or anyone might have.
I'm thinking about ordering custom jet kit offerd on this site.

WR450F_4600FT: Cutting the grey wire does not eliminate the rev limiter, so you probably were hitting it at those speeds with stock gearing.

Hey are you going on any rides any time soon??? Been doing a lot of the Red Cone/Webster to Breck and back over Georgia latley. What about you. Call me if you want the details on the JD thing. My buddy I have been riding with has 01 YZ 426 and was struggling with riding it at elevation not only with the jetting and but also the gearing. So I recomended the JD thing to him and put it on and now he is having a blast. Talk to you later.

I knew I could count on my TT brethren. It's a full throttle open situation which happens in third gear on up in the higher rev range. I could be hitting the rev limiter because it's a sudden-loss of all power - a bummer on hill climbs. I have been riding the heck out of the bike and not stopping to tune much and with fall coming it's time to spend some bucks and time in the garage. What's a JD setup (that's a clue as to how long I have been out of TT) ? And what main are you running this fall/winter for Pueblo/Moab elevation ?

It's so welcome to see a familiar post. What is the "JD" thing ? Since the Revloc install in May, I have put 200 hours on the bike this summer, recently 3 days last weekend at rascally Rabbit Valley. There is the bi-annual Moab/Green River/San Rafeal ride the weekend of October 24th (Game ?) so I got to get this issue fixed. Till then I'm looking for a weekend ride almost anywhere - the super-secret Douglas County area is still open (Game ?). Please give me an update on the "JD" mod and lets ride sometime !!!!!!

Great to see you back! The "JD" thing is, James Dean FCR Jetting Kit. You can find it in the TT Store. You can't go wrong with this kit.

Ok as far as riding this weekend I have to go to South Carolina. But next weekend 11th and 12th I am a riding fool if there is no snow. Let me know?? As far as the 24th I will be in Vegas. AAAAAAAARRRRRRRR. How is it that you seem to be able to ride all this time but everytime I call you your better half seems to think she has something for you to do??? Joking. I think that I have been in that situation a little more than you. Can't live with um and you don't want to take them riding either. Call me if you need more info.

I'll definetly check out the JD for $70. Iv'e spent three times the price of that on mechanic fees alone trying to get this right. Would you believe the weekend of the 11th my entire in-law family is coming in town and staying at our house ? That is the price I'll pay for straying out to Utah later this month. As a safety measure, I'm keeping the WR Four-Nifty loaded on the truck just in case I need a sanity break. Happy trails on your out-of-towners, I'll let you know how the JD worked out.

It's great to be back. To think I spent months and dollars trying to figure this out and all I needed to do was to write a post to my TT brethren to learn about the "JD". I feel stupid. Well heck, I guess I am....
