DRZ450 Jetting

Recommended Posts

Let's see how many eyes that title attracts :) . Anyhow, I posted this over in the jetting forum, but I'd like a second opinion:

I've got the Millenium 450 kit on the way and would like to get a good starting point on the carb while I have all of this downtime. Here's the list:

'03 "S" model

450 big bore

Custom full Ti exhaust (Striker)

Hotcams in and out

FCR39 with JD kit

3x3 mod

Twin Air filter

I ride mainly around sea level with an occasional jaunt up in the mountains, perhaps around 5000 ft. It's really humid about 8 months out of the year. What's a good baseline? What normally is changed for larger displacement?

I am almost ready to assemble this beast, but need to clarify something. B-man, you said go two sizes smaller on main jet. I had a 160 and I threw in a 155, but I get this answer from James Dean:

The humidity and sometimes elevation will more often favor the red marked needle. Try the following-

Stock pilot jet

2 turns out on fuel screw

Red marked needle, 5th fron top clip position

#165 main jet (compare with a #160 to be sure)

Thanks,

James

Do you think that I should have had a larger jet in there to begin with? Do these settings sound good to go?

Well, if you would start with a 155, then I'll start with a 155. What about the other settings?

2 turns out on fuel screw

Red marked needle, 5th from top clip position

PAS?
