Need a 48 Pilot jet, anyone have one, you'd send to me????

25 posts in this topic

I called Sudco and they have a $20 minimum + shipping. So I called the local dealer and this is how that went:

Hi, I need a pilot jet for a 99 WR 400

can you hold

what do you need

I need a pilot jet for a 99 WR400f

is that a Suzuki

No Yamaha

can you hold

ok, that's $35, I need your credit card #

$35???? are you sure

yep, that has all the springs, washers and screws

are you sure this is the part

Yep

Thanks I'll let you know

Does anyone have an extra? or I'll pay the $20 plus shipping from Sudco.

Thanks

Bill

Bill,

I'll check tonight - I have a double on one or two PJs but I don't think it is a 48. If no one else can help you I'll go buy one at my local dealer and ship it to you for cost - I need to buy reeds & a needle for my KX500 anyhow. You can buy me a beer at Moab for the service :)

I'll hook you up with a new jet. Send me your address over email. I'll have it shipped out to you in Tuesdays' mail, you should have it by Thurs/Fri.

Brian,

Thanks for the offer, but Mike has got it handled. I already have a good selection of jets and Sudco doesn't carry any other accesories for me to buy.

Mike,

Thanks for hooking me up and your reservation at the Moto Motel is set for June :D

I know the pilot in my 00 WR is different from the 99's but this might help you out. I go to anyplace that sells / services Polaris snowmobiles and get my carburetor jets there. They usually carry a good selection of pilots and mains for Keihin carbs. I paid $7 for a pilot and as little as $2.75 for mains! Hope this helps.

Bill- I got your message. I do not believe the pilot jet to be a different fit . Yes, perhaps different size-'00 stock PJ is 42.

But not the fit, or better said the series of jets. ALL the series of jets are identical for this carb, beit FCR or FCR2 (yamaha or Suzuki ). It's the size of the jet opening (42 vs. 45 vs. 48 PJ) that is different among models.

The 48 is in the mail, Bill. Compare it to your stock jet and see for yourself :). I think you'll like it for the winter, then maybe back to a 45 come July. Time will tell.

Also, I *thought* I had a DVR. What was found is a DKR. I sent that too. Check for past posts, I believe the needles are identical if used at different clip positions. If I'm not mistaken, the DKR is too clips leaner than the DVR. PLEASE check this for yourself to make sure, search for DVR on the site. James D has a few helpful posts which clears this matter up (thanks, James!). He's DA MAN!!

You should have the 48PJ and OBDKR by Thursday :D

The reason I say the earlier models have different pilots is because I helped my brother check his 98 YZ400 and the two are very different. The pilot in my 00WR is the same as in my XR while his is shorter with a different tip (no jokes please)

Bill,

I checked my tool box last night and I do not have an extra 48 PJ for my '99 WR400. The PJ for a '99 with the FCR carb is the same one that is used on KLX300s - it DOES NOT look like the PJ from an XR.

Let me know if you still need a PJ.....

Brian, I agree that the pilot in a '99 WR does not look like the XR's-my point is that I have both bikes-'00 WR and multiple '98 XR's and the pilot jets are identical/interchangeable in shape and design (not size#). Therefore they <u>must</u> vary in model years for the WR.

Brian,

I got the jet today and it is the right one. Your check is in the mail. Thanks for your help :)

Chris in Utah,

Looks like you were right :D

I'll take a picture of the '99 PJ & the '01 PJ tomorrow and post it. The one Chris is talking about is the same PJ as on my wife's '92 XR250R.

Bill - hope the 48PJ solves your problem :)

mcarp there are three needle clips difference in the DKR & the DVR

m = 1 clip

p = 2 clips

r = 3rd clip

i'm looking for someone to try the DVP (clip 7) or DTM (clip 6), no APJ, 50 PJ & PAJ-SCREW out 2 1/4. you'll be impressed. cost will be about $20 i suppose.

point & squirt, snap wheelies etc.

anyone want to have a try.

taffy-

Does this work better than the EKR? I'm quite pleased with it...tons of snap and ripping mid-range.

in my opinion the snap & 1/4 throttle is a big improvement. if you trail try it. it's better. enduro? give me a week & i'll try them back to back.

you don't feel the surge at 1/2 throttle because the 1/4 & 3/4 are so good.

look, at $20 i'm not exactly selling you a pup. the APJ is going to be thee big news here whatever i or jd find.

i'm even going to try the 48PJ with the pilot screw out a long way. if it works all i'll be asking you to buy is an $11 PAJ-SCREW.

Taffy- I know it's easier to give advice on jetting when you have info. Here's what I run on my '00 and it seems to run well. Conditions are mud, around 40 deg F, low humidity, and 700 feet ASL.

EKR, EKQ # 4 OR

EKN,EKP # 3

170MJ

48 PJ

100 PAJ

1.1--1.2 Fuel screw

YZ timed, WB filter/tapered header, stock YZ pipe, 14/52 gearing, stop trimmed/airbox lid off, YZ rear fender (more available free air intake). Thanks to JD, Clark, and others I've made a few changes and experimented along the way. The above setup seems to run quite well, doesn't foul plugss, and never gives me hastles. The EKQ #4 seems to run nearly the best so far.

But if you recommend a needle trial or perhaps the PAJ adjustment (stock #75, already chnged to #100), by all means-fire away.

So, Bill, did you play with the carb yet? How do you like the 48?

mcarp

the bike sounds similar to mine, bar the YZ pipe. so your MJ will go up to 175 add to that the fact that you're going from an 'E' series to a 'D' series which JD has factory info indicating is worth two jets (= 5)so look to your MJ reaching 175/178/180.

you forget that i found SNAP!!! evryone has had to roll the throttle on. i'm talking about leaning forward & whacking the throttle HARD.

imagine a left & right just 20 feet apart, you're in second & all you can do is blip the throttle as you peel from left to right ok? i can pop the wheel up 6" off of 1/8 throttle.

Since it warmed up today I did a little testing.

I went back to DVP#4

stayed with the 48PJ

and put the fuel screw 1 3/4

This is the best setting to this day for me.

It seems DVP #5 works a lot better with the 45PJ.

Here's the pic of the jets. Sorry about the poor quality - my camera doesn't like to focus at 1ft.

Left: PJ for '00 WR(?), '90 KX500 & '92 XR250R.

Middle: Main Jet for '88 XR600, '90 KX500, '92 XR250R & '99 WR400

Right: PJ for '99 WR400
