Need help Jetting a 02 Yz250f

Recommended Posts

I have a 02 Yz250f and it won't rev past a 1/4 throttle and it starts popping. (Almost sounds like a false rev limiter)    The bike has a fmf mega bomb header, stock slip-on and a twin air  air filter. 

The jets that are in it are a 42-pilot jet, 178- main jet, 4th clip on the needle and a 72- jet.  

Just need some help figuring out what's wrong with it and what jet may need to be changed.

If the jetting you have now was ever working well, then the problem you have is not a jetting problem.

Check to see that the main jet has not fallen out....as it would do just that.

Your problem is most likely a jumped cam timing (if you have not changed the cam chain and tensioner in 15 years, this is to be expected), or a bad plug cap, plug wire, plug, or stator (arcing).

I just picked the bike up not to long ago but when I got it it was doing this. 

 If the timing was a tooth off would it start up first or second kick?  

And could the pilot jet be to small?

The 72 jet is what? The starter jet? If the starter jet, leave that alone.

Perform a fuel screw adjustment:

 

Check the AP pump timing and leak jet size:
