moab setup?

13 posts in this topic

I am going to moab in a couple of days, I just uncrated my '07 wr450. I have unplugged the grey wire, removed exhaust restrictor and snorkel, and put in gytr throttle stop. It's still very snowy where I live so I haven't gotten a chance to ride yet. Is my bike going to run alright in moab with these mods and the stock jetting?

You might get away with it given the higher altitude and lean stock setting, but you really should jet it properly...SC

I will jet it correctly for 10,000 feet and up where I live when we melt out. But I am glad to hear that I can ride it this weekend. I don't have time to work on it before I leave and I sure would hate not to able to ride.

Awesoe you are going to Moab my friend and I will be there on May 1...my 3rd trip there it is aweosme.

my bike is 2005 Wr450...FMF pipe with the power bomb header and titanium midpipe, all the usual mods air box grey wire pollution stuff etc.

I run a #70 starter jet, 150 Pilot Jet, 168 Main Jet and the needle is set up on the third ring from the top (Gytr needle), also run the Boysen Accelerator pump cover. If the bike is running lean or rich I adjust the fuel mixture and that does the trick.

My friend last year got a new 07 wr450 when we went to Moab he did the same mods as yourself and he left the jetting stock...with zero problems ....

Have fun and yes I run the Utah Sport crash guard on the bottom of my WR...needed if you are a little crazy!!!

Wow, interesting. I have a possible job opportunity in moab and have been considering it. I was born in SoCal (Rancho Cucamonga), lived in east Tennessee (Johnson City/Elizabethton) bout the other half of my 24 yrs, currently in phoenix and wondering what it's like there?? Know there's dirt riding which I like that idea. I'm single and free to wonder, should I go for it?? :eek::applause::p

sorry for the threadjack, but really you already got your answer. :ride: Just figured it would work to throw that in there considering it was kinda on topic. Thanks for any input!

I'd advise you take a trip to check that job out. I've been lucky enough to travel the southwest with my yamaha and Moab has some of the most incredible riding you will ever find.

I run the 140's in the M5B tire....it grips extremely well on the slickrock and great in the sands too.....

have zero problems with the width...lots and lots of power to turn the lugs!!!

Have fun and be real safe.....

Had a great time in moab. I just ran the stock tires. I did some dirt road riding to break the bike in and then rode some trails. The jetting seemed to be really close. I have to get rid of that ais, the lean pop is horrible when I let off the throttle
