For those who think off idle bog can't be completely eliminated on 4 strokes

Math, I've reached "No bog island", it's beautiful here, topless women and all the free beer you could ever want.. There are some "Treasure Maps" located in the jetting database. I can honestly say I live a bog free life... C'mon in the water's great..


It is good to finally read that I'm not running after an uncatchable dream.

As I said in my post, I have some more work to do.

During my holidays, I'm gonna take two days off the family duties. It's gonna be me, my bike,jets and tools handy, docs I've found on how to jet the FCR carb and a wonderful straight 1 mile slopy road close to my father's land. We'll get that bike to work like a champ.

I know that my bike isn't set up perfectly but ive never had an off idle bog. I have a twin air air filter a gyt-r insert, cut grey wire, yz throttle stop, and a zip ty fuel screw. I lowered the clip on the needle to raise the needle after I opened up my intake and ehaust and it didn't seem to do anything at all. the fuel screw is about 1 3/4 turns out and every thing else is stoch as far as the engine goes. I don't seem to have any problems as long as I have fresh gas. I have looked at the plug a couple of times at it looks good to me. Does this setup sound good, should I move the needle clip back to stock or leave it?

I too have never had the off idle bog but I have seen some strange YZ450's that had it real bad! :)

whats this idle bog that you speak of? jetting them does wonders hey?
