Just don't assume its lean, its probally rich. Try raising your clip / lowering your needle, thus leaning out the range. GL Oh there are plenty of threads on these issues, try a search....many pages.

Very tight, I was able to adjust my needle with out loosning the boots. Just take the top engine mounts off and you can get to the top of the carb and neddle. GL

If you lean it back be careful when you ride at a lower altitude. I haven't heard of a 4 stroke dirtbike melting down from a lean condition, but I'm sure it happens.

I've got a 426 and I think they are pretty finicky on the fuel delivery. I can almost guess what my GPS altimeter says by listening to how much popping it makes. I run normally at @1200-1500ft above sea level. When I get around 3500-4000ft it gets really noticeable.
