'01 YZ426f Elevation Jetting

2 posts in this topic

I have an 2001 YZ426f and live in San Diego. I ride mostly in the surrounding desert so nothing ever above 2000 ft elevation. I am taking a hunting trip in a few weeks in the mountains of Idaho and am planning on using my dirt bike for transportation. Do I have to change the jetting for it to run up there? Will be between 7500-10000 ft. I don't mind if it runs a little funny as long as it runs. I just need it to get around up there. Thanks in advance.

Based on rule of thumb calculations, an 8000 foot increase in altitude calls for a reduction in jet size of about 7% (slightly less than 1% per thousand feet), so by that, you'd need to go from, let's say a 170 to a 158-160 on the main, and from a hypothetical 42 pilot to a 39-40.
