Off idle bog with #40 leak jet - (Anyone sick of this topic?)

8 posts in this topic

I finally got a #40 leak jet and I'm still experiencing off idle bog. 2/3 throttle still shuts 'er down. First thoughts anyone? Has anyone had complete success getting rid of the bog?

'03 WR450 - open stock exhaust , 168 main, 45 pilot, f-screw @ 1 3/4, jd blue #4, 0 feet elevation.

why don't you try disconecting your TPS? it's as easy as unplugging a connector, and you can hook it right back up if you don't like the results. just a thought, since nothing else has worked for you.

Make sure you run your idle on the high side. Try a 48 pilot and a 170 main. You can also plug your leak jet. :cry:

I'll consider plugging the leak jet... if everyone is convinced that a lean condition is causing the problem.

I just swapped 170/50 out for the 168/45. I wanted to go with the 48 but didn't have one, and e-start is a whore with the 50.

I need to double check the squirt timing, try the 48, and then plug the leak... and then buy a 300EXC.

Anything else?

Hey, I noticed you're using a 72 starter jet... what the heck does the starter jet do? I have a 72 lying around...

I dont think you need to go to the extreme of buying a KTM300EXC. But I agree it just may be the best off road weapon for racing. :cry: I just think the WR450 is the best off road / all terrain trail riding bike in the world! :cry: :cry: :cry:

Agreed... I'm not going anywhere.

Now about that starter jet... What function does it serve?

Thanks RB. Does it only affect starting with the choke engaged? One fast kick is all I need to start, but the e-start rarely works.
