Update on 07 WR450f Carb Access

6 posts in this topic

:applause:

Hi, just wondering wether anyone has agreeded on an easy way to access the carbs on these bikes for jetting. There was lots of different ways suggested but no one seemed to agree on the best procedure.(not that I could find anyway)

I heard one about just unbolting the bottom of the subframe and lifting it up?? Cheers..........Clinton

So far ,it's unbolt the bottom sub frame bolts and exhaust ,tip it up out of the way,then unbolt the shock and swing it out of the way.A bit of a pain,,,,,

Access to the needle, main and pilot jets is quite easy

Needle, remove seat and tank, remove top engine mount undo two screws on top of carby remove it one more allen screw to go your needle is under it.

Main and pilot jets, undo clamps twist carby,remove large nut on bottom of carby,remove front chain guard which will give you just enough room to do the job.

Sounds good to me, now I just got to source some jetting specs off the dealers to suit my FMF powercore 4 (every dealer tells you something different). Thanks for your input muchly appreciated.

It is a pain but I did it once and after over 800 miles I've never had to change anything. Once you get it right most people wont have to go back.
