03 450F Elevation Question

3 posts in this topic

I have a 03 450F that I use at about 1500' and I plan on going to an elevation of about 9000' just to do some trail riding and I am wondering if I should look at re-jetting my bike? Any help would be appreciated.

You'll be about two sizes too fat, which may be enough to make it run bad.

My altitude correction formula suggests you multiply your mainjet size by 0.93, which would take a 165 to 154, the nearset size being 155.

One question, Why couldn't you look at the sticky with the jetting tips in it? YOu wouldn't have needed to ask this question if you had. :bonk:
