05 wr450 jetting kit which one is best?

What is the difference between the kits JD, FMF ect... Is there something I'm missing here? A jet is a jet isn't it? Tell me if I'm wrong but a crude description of a jet is a small brass plug with a metered orifice. So..... What would make one kit better than another? Is it the tuning instructions? That maybe I could understand but i find it hard to believe that one company is going to make a jet better than another. Please give me your opinions as I am very interested in possibly re-jetting my carb. I should note that my bike runs damn near perfect so far as I do not have any hesitation so I suppose driveabuility is damn near perfect however one could always use more response and power. I could use some more top end and come to think of it some bottom end and midrange would be nice too :naughty::naughty: . So give me you advise and opinions on this please..

I don't know what comes in the FMF kit, but the key to the JD kit is the custom tapered needles. The factory needles have a single taper. JD did a lot of testing to determine the proper fuel mixture at each throttle setting. The triple taper in these needles delivers an optimized fuel mixture throughout the entire throttle range. I love mine, and at $70 its a bargain. The kit also comes with a few standard jets, and instructions for which ones to use depending on your altitude, etc.

I'm not affiliated with JD in any way, but just wanted to spread the word a little, since the kit worked out so well for me.

I just pu the JD kit in my 05 WR450 and it runs great. Much better than stock.

The needle I think is what does it.

One more vote for the JD kit :naughty: :naughty:

Ok sounds like the JD kit is the way to go. I was at the local Yamaha shop today and I asked about the different jetting kits they did not know anything about the JD kit or how to get it. Is it only available online?

Yes, right here in the Thumper Talk Store

JD kit all the way!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! :naughty:

Why don't you just go to the WR jetting database and copy my specs, my bike runs flawlessly.....Perfect...... This is a no brainer!!! Us WR guys have posted all of our jetting for everyone to see, your bike is no different than mine... Don't over complicate things..... :naughty:

:naughty: Another Vote for the JD Kit!

Another thing I felt was worth the $$$$$ were the instructions! That alone is worth the $70.

Spend some time thinking about the entire range of information he gives you, and you'll be much better prepaired in any situation. You'll become the jetting guru at the track! :naughty:

      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.
