Need of some advice, bike running weird. Honda CRF450 10'

If anyone can point me in the right direction I would appreciate it.  Last fall my 2010 Honda CRF450 started backfiring on decel and my idle knob didn't do much at times.  Everyone said either a tune or valves were the issue.  Sent my ECU off got it tuned to the elevation and valves checked good as new.  Over the winter cleaned everything and replaced all the basics.  Went out today in hopes of something different but same issues.  Pulls very strong no issues but when I come to a stop it just wants to die at times and then other times rpms very high at idle after riding.  Once in a while my light code flashes 1 beep every 3 seconds it seems but not always.  What is my next step in fixing this.  Do I have to replace the entire throttle body?  Thanks in advance everyone this is very frustrating.

If you have not been replacing your fuel pump filter that's the issue.

If you wait too long, the pump will fail.

If you are not filtering and treating your gas, the injectors will not spray cleanly

Tons of info in the CRF forum and how to's on YouTube

Thanks, here is my next problem and not sure what is going on because I'm trying to change the filter now.  Hondas old part was 06160-MEN-A30 for the fuel filter.  It has now been replaced with the 06160-MEN-A31.  I picked one up this morning and when I went to put the new one on it's a different shape for one but when I try to start the bike nothing no fuel is getting to the throttle body.  Then when I pull the tank off gas just pours out of the bottom of the tank.  I then put the old A30 model back on it she fires right up and yes the old filter was a slight blackish color.  Anyone know why this new filter isn't working?

You can soak and clean the old filter

Honda knows how to take our money I guess.  I'll try that cleaning for short term but come to find out to use the new filters you have to buy an entire new pump that supports there new filters, BS if you ask me.  I guess in the past you had to buy an entire new unit and not just swap out the filter.  Need to sell that and buy a KTM

KTM uses the same system.....

New filter doesn't get here till Monday. Sorry for bothering you again, looked online and nothing really tells you how to clean the fuel filter. Do I just soak it in clean gas and massage it a bit to get crud out. Thanks a million.

      Hi Guys,
      So I recently bought a 1997 XR400. I've done some research into getting more power through some basic mods and rejetting the carbs. Though all of the ones I've found have been for post 98 XR400s so the stock carb set up is a lot different. Usually people are opening up the airbox, exhaust ect. ect. and Jetting their carbs up to 160/162 for mains around 60 ish (I think) for the pilot. However for the 97 model this is close to stock for the jets.
      So essentially what Im asking (Just to cut to the chase ) Has anyone got a 96/97 (maybe 98, not sure) XR400 and has done these similar mods, and what sort of jetting have to done as a result.
      Thanks in advanced, also its my first post so apologies if I havent done everything correctly.

      38MM Cast SmartCarb. Purchased a couple years ago for a yz250. Don't have the bike anymore, and it has been sitting around for about a year. Used, but in fine working condition. You can also purchase a different needle for different bikes, as well as rebuild kits from their website.
      Asking $250 shipped to continental United States. I can arrange other shipping options at the buyers expense.

      Hey guys I just bought a bike last night. So the seller said the bike will turn on but then die. We didn't try it because it was really late at night and it was raining (seat was wet). But he said if you bump start it, it will turn on and ride. So what do you think the problem is? I just want to make sure it runs... I probably won't be able to bump start it till Saturday (rain)... It's a four stroke, and I know absolutely nothing about them. Thanks.

      I know this topic has been discussed in the past, but I have not found any options available for the new 2018 bikes. I live and work for a new Beta Dealer (Auburn Extreme Powersports) in California, and we are having a difficult time mapping the RR-S bikes for full FMF exhausts. We have tried contacting Beta Support several times for this issue to no avail, and we typically are given the runaround when transferring to techs and secretaries. From what we can gather, the FMF flash is designed for the RR bikes, but not the street-legal counterparts. Every time we try to install the FMF map onto an RR-S errors occur, and the programmer screen goes virtually blank. We have heard through the grapevine that some are using the RR maps on the RR-S with success, but we have yet to try it, even on our own bikes for fear that it will permanently erase or damage the CDI. Any and all help or suggestions regarding this topic would surely be appreciated! Thanks, Ben.
