02YZ426F (and other YZ) carburetor - doesn't like steady throttle?

Hi guys,

I've read somewhere that the carburetors installed on the YZ's (generally cross bikes) aren't optimized, or don't like if you ride on steady throttle (constant throttle, let's say at 50, 60, 70%). Is this true or it's only a myth?

Nowadays, I've noticed that the engine sounds much better when riding in MX style instead of steady throttle like enduro/SM style...or it's just me noticing weird stuff? :ride:

Four-strokes don't mind being run on steady throttle.

Mine runs fine at a cruise. Don't know what you mean.

just keep a steady wrist! haha

It sounds like it's getting too much fuel and it really asks for that throttle to be opened wide.... or maybe this is normal and I'm dumb, so thread can be closed :ride:

If it's running rough at a cruise, and the symptoms indicate it's too rich, try lowering the needle a step. You can also try a needle with the next larger upper diameter, or perhaps your main jet is simply too large.

What are the "too rich" symptoms?
