wr450 started pop-in

Last time I took my 450 out it was running perfect, brought it home washed it, ran it long enough for it to dry and parked it. Started it yesterday (a couple weeks later) to keep the battery charged and now it's popping and sputtering down low.

Any ideas??? :)

i don't know how to fix the sputtering problem but you could fisx the red sticker problem by selling it to me because i live in az

Mine tends to pop when cold, and sounds better when warmed up, however the problem is its to lean.. I would bet you need a jet job.

Check the plug

WGP - If it needs jetting why would it run so good two weeks earlier?

Texas - A bad plug can make it pop? It was replaced 20 miles ago. :)

Jetting changes with TEMP, Humidity, Elevation, so winter to summer, it may have needed jetted and you just didn't realize it, thats what happened to me. I thought it was running great, then it started popping when cold, then I jetted, now it starts quicker and flat out rips, the fastest bike I've ever ridden. :):D

WGP. Thanks for the advice I'll give it a try. What jets did you go to? I ride from 1000 4000 evevation

Copyied From Sticky: I haven't messed with the starter or pilot jets, just the needle and Main, plus installed fuel adjustmant screw (great for frequent elevation changes.

Here is what works for me and you guys can use it as a starting point to jet your WR450 bikes only!

(Note: do not use these for WR426 or WR400 due to carb differences!)

This recommendation requires air box flow mods and an open stock or aftermarket pipe and ACV circuit intact.
