yz400f throttle bog

29 posts in this topic

there is a bog when i blip the throttle on my bike i know it has to do with the acc pump i watched a video on youtube on how to do the o ring mod but when i took the cover off my 98 yz400f carb has a different mechanism so i am stumped on how to get rid of the lag in the acc pump i will post a pic of what the mechanism looks like so maybe u could give me feedback on how to do a mod on it and if i even can. Also i had all new stock jets put in it and the whole acc pump was rebuilt. 2 rides agoIMG_1821.JPG

okay i looked at the mechanism today for a while and the black arm connected to the throttle arm takes about 6 secounds to bottom out after the throttle is pinned. and i cant seem to find a fix anywhere i look, its really pissing me off because i almost wiped out last weekend when i went to hit the throttle and it boged than hit. im not going to put a new carb on because i payed 1300 for the bike and a new yz450 carb is around 400$ theres gotta be something that can be done since the problem has been there since 98. and on the Taffy mod the pump arm looks way different than on mine the plinger arm on mine is skinnier and has a rubber boot on it there is knowwhere to put the mod. 

or am i missing something ?????????????? :banghead:

Probably would, but there will be a lot more involved.  No cables; you need three.  Hot start?  Might need that too. Then you could run into a more complicated jetting situation than normal; it might have an incompatible needle or an air jet difference.  You could end up spending another $100 to make that one work.

ok i put a new air/ fuel needle in today from moose racing the bog is still there but its good enouph for me. on another note this mother &%$#@!er started pissing coolant out the god damn  weap hole after tuning it today all i need to know is how much this will cost to fix because i am about done spending money on it its a blast but if the coolant leak cost more than 50 i will have to sell it and get a 2 smoker because this 4 stroke has been nothing but problems.

You will need to buy a water pump seal kit. There is lots of info on how to do this simple repair yourself on this website. Also there is a pretty good YouTube video showing what needs to be done.

4 strokes are very dependable with regular maintenance and if they are not neglected or bastardized with crappy parts.

ok i ordered the repair kit but i had plans to go out riding this weekend so could i get away with putting some gasket maker on the cover to seal it and be okay riding it for about 5 hours.

No.  If you succeed in sealing the weep hole, you will not stop the leak, which is coming from the seal.  The leak, then having no way to escape, will force coolant into your engine oil, and you might loose the entire engine in the process.

 

You would be better off to try keeping an eye on the coolant level, but bear in mind that you only have less than a half gallon of coolant in the system to start with, and it doesn't take that much time to loose a significant amount.

 

Just fix it.

Yah. Thanks for the help somebody told me I could seal it but I figured if that hole was ent sealed in the first place And I sealed it something bad would happen

ok now im confused yesterday it was dripping from the weap hole, one drip every, about 2 secounds after i had it idleing for about 5 minutes, i shut it off & put it away now today i checked the radiator dosent look like it lost any antifreeze and i started it up today and only let it run for 2 minutes it is 50f where i am im wi and it dident leak a drop i know this model overheats fast so could it have been dripping because of that? because yesterday was the first time i let the bike idle for more than 2 min because the header starts to glow if it sits idleing

If it was dripping coolant from the overflow, that's one thing.  That's related to overfilling the radiator, or letting the engine idle too long at a standstill.  There's only on reason for coolant to come out of the weep hole, and it has noting to do with heat.

 

Having said that, water pump seals can and do leak under one or more of 4 different conditions:

 

  • Shut off/cold
  • Shut off/hot (pressure in system)
  • Running/cold
  • Running/hot (pressure in system) (possibly only at higher RPM)

It may leak only under any one, or as many as all these conditions, and behave differently at different times.  Once they start, they don't get better.

      Hey guys I was wondering what bike I should get I havnt rode since I was in 7th grade but I had a kx 85 so I was experienced with riding I could pin the bike on tracks so I'm not completely new to riding now I'm 6,2 190 I was contemplating what bike to get, should I go with a yz 125 or should I go with a yzf450, I would never sell the 450 prob have it forever thank you tell me your opinions plz!!

      I'm finally getting the chance to go to the dunes in Oregon and cant decide weather I should run a 8 or 10 paddle tire on the back of my 81 YZ465 2stroke. Suggestions? Pros and cons for each? Thanks!

      Hey all, let me get right to the point, basically for the past couple years I've had this bike, it hasn't been running right. It tends to start well, and has a decent amount of power for a 200+ lb kid on it, but once I attempt to hit the top of the power band, it tends to cough and sputter like it's choking. When I recently checked to carb to jet it, I realized ALL but one of the Jets are missing. I've checked the reed valves, they seem to be in great shape... However, today (it is a warm day) it ran great for a while, after topping off the oil and running with the choke half on, this bike also leaks oil, but I'm almost convinced that this is a jetting issue (being that they're missing)  at this point, but I've also never put a top end in this bike. Thanks for any help, I'd just like to get an opinion on what you guys think.   I know I'm all over the place btw, sorry for that

      I've currently got a 2016 yz250x. I love it but it's not road legal.
      I've got my motorbike license and I need a bike to ride to work. If I'm going to drop a few k on another bike, I figure I might aswell get a road legal dirtbike so I can ride on the road during the week but also ride in the state forests on the weekend.
      So my question is, what bike would suit my purpose better? The RMX or the WR? Or are there any other bikes I should be looking at? Here in australia theres about 20 times more wr's for sale then rmx's, and spare parts availabilty is easier for the wr cos they're so popular, so I'm leaning towards this, but I'm open to suggestions from others.
      Regardless of which one I got, I'd get a supermoto wheelset for it so I could just swap wheelset instead of changing tires every weekend.
      Thanks in advance

      Hey ThumperTalk. I'm new to the forum and I have some questions about a 2001 yz426 I found for sale. The guy wants $1500 but said he would work with me on the price a little. I know that's a pretty good deal. What I'm wondering is how long the motor will last me. All I'll be doing is trail riding and riding around on a farm. I have an rm125 which I love. I was looking around for an 06+ yz250, but I found this deal and I've always heard good things about the 426's. He said he recently did the valves and it has been a good reliable bike for him. So would this be a good bike for me? I just don't wanna get a 4 stroke and have to dump a ton of money into it. My 2 stroke has been bullet proof. 
      Any help would be appreciated
