What WR carbs DONT break slides?

7 posts in this topic

Hey,

my bike (98 wr400 converted to 426 w/ hotcams) busted the slide not so long ago after around an estimated 3000k's.

After the new slide, i only got 1 ride out of it (500k's) so i think I'm going to change my carb.

What are the ones that don't have problems? i heard some of the 426's can run like ass.

also, jetting wise if i get a 2000 wr400 carb can i just swap the jets over or what? i dont know anything about jetting but im perfectly happy with my bike is jetted currently, asside from its diet of thin aluminium.

Thanks,

Phill

Men don't lose your time and money.....by an edelbrook carb, this is the best mod I do to my wr400 98. You will put money again and again in your old 1998 carb, paid the edelbrook $350.00 USD an never touch this carb for the last year...and no jetting needed....look at e bay...........good luck.

Get the Edlebrock. You will keep replacing slides until one time a big enough piece of slide with cause piston or valve damage, then you'll really be Pi--ed. You need an 00 or later carb to be away from the slide problem and they are not easy to come by used, then you still have a used carb, with possible other problems.
