i have a 1998 yz400f and i got it all dialed in and i would like to ride it on really tight trails, and i have to clutch it all the time i can barley keep it running because i am reving and riding the clutch all the time. im going 1 tooth smaller in the front, but what else can help me? also what does anyone else have on their 400/450's? im also thinking about fly wheel weights. let me know guys!

I use mine or enduro and have done this:

- 2008 450 carb (makes it easier to start and it runs way more smooth in tight stuff)
- 13/52 gearing + o-ring chain
- Rekluse (was damn hard to find since they stopped making them in 2008)
- WR400 cam timing
- WR250 rear brake master, I think it was from an 2010 (no more boiling fluid)
- WR250 foot pegs, they are smaller, not a perfect fit tho, from a 2010 too


The best of it was for sure the rekluse it has helped me tons of times, else just good tires and a lot of suspension tuning. I never got around to put any extra weight on my fly wheel but its a good idea iam sure of.

the carb is a little out of my price range at the moment. i looked and they are about 300 on ebay. im planning on the sprocket changes and if i can find fly wheel weights i will get them to, is a rekluse a clutch?

Here is one for 200$ but you need the clutch perch and lever too, cause the hot start is on the handlebar..

Yea a rekluse is an auto clutch.. EFM can make one for you, just google EFM clutches and write them, but they are 600$.. The weights I have seen is bolt or weld on, so I have just found a flywheel on ebay and iam gonna make the weight myself and weld it on, its basicly just a big steel washer.
