YZ 400F jetting, cant seem to get it right

8 posts in this topic

I had no help in the jetting form...

I ran stock 175 Main Jet, and backfired coming out of high rpm's

So I stuck a 178 Main Jet, got the same result.

I have the fmf powercore with 450 airbox(dont know if the 450 airbox is bigger then the 400) just cleaned the acc. pump

should I mess with the fuel/air mixture screw?

I just dont know what to do with it anymore

How bad is the popping, Is it only on decel or constant and excessive. What is the Elevation? A certain amount of popping with these bikes is normal, if it is excessive I would start with your pilot jet and not the main. the fuel screw should be your next step after that. I had the same problem and will post the link below to my thread and also Here is a great technique from Eddie Sisneros that got my bike running like a clock....until I cracked the case (another story).:thumbsup: Go back to the stock main and try this brother.

Also for the fuel screw adjustments, if you want to make life a little easier on yourself, spend 12 bucks and get a Tusk Fuel Mixture Screw-$11.99 (It's a dial, with numbers that sticks out so its easier to make the fuel screw adjustments and keep track of # of turns) Best of luck to ya man.:thumbsup:

The main jet has nothing to do with exhaust backfire on deceleration:

Confirm that you do not have an air leak in the exhaust system, then visit the jetting DB and find what others with similar setups are using for a starting point, and read this:

how to I access the piolt jet?
It's forward of the main jet in the bottom of the carb. On a 400, you should be able to rotate the loosened carb far enough for access. Before you do that, try the pilot adjustment as outlined in the third link I posted. There may be no reason to change it.

Download a manual here:

If you you can't get the link to work, let me know here.
