Alex, I also have an 01' YZ 426. I live at sea level, so the stock jetting works fine for me. However, I just came back from a trip to Colorado where I was riding anywhere from 5000 ft. up to 13,000 ft.. I had a 152 main, a 38 pilot, and the clip on the needle in the 2nd position. I didn't fool with any screws, or anything else. The bike ran pretty good with this set up, it was still a little rich up around 12,000 ft but it ran smoothly.
