Another jetting question on my 06.

Recommended Posts

I put in the 48 pilot and a Zip ty screw. All else is stock on the settings.

I still get some popping on decel, not backfiring. It is just not as smooth as my 05. I have tried the screw frokm between 1 to 2.5 with no apparent change.

I was thinking of checking:

Float level

Air leak

Possibly the adjustable screw lost the oring?

Thoughts? Has anyone been able to remove the popping completely?

a slight pop on decel is perfectly normal.trying to eliminate it completely will result in to rich of pilot circuit in most cases.

Check the exhaust flange at the head and the seal where it meets the midpipe section. An exhaust leak will cause the poping.

As noted in another post I tried the 170 main and 48 pilot. I found the setup too rich for my elevation, ended up going 45 pilot and 168 main and about 2 on the fuel screw, It works pretty well for me. I think I will wait until I put after market exhaust on it in order to go to the 170/48 route. Maybe it will help you.

A question I have, is some popping on decel normal for the YZ? On my WR I dont have this popping at all and the bike runs great. I thought it may have something to do with the YZ timing??

      Selling an FMF Power Core 4 exhaust system off my 450FX. Exhaust has 80 hours and is 100% functional. This will also fit the 14-15 YZ450F and 16-18 Wr450F. If needed I can also include new muffler packing although it does not need it.

      I have a 2008 YZ450F with a stock header pipe and Pro Circuit T-4 Slip-On Exhaust. I'm 99% sure the slip on is shot because its loud as hell and when I take it off and shake it it rattles. I would repack it but the screws are all stripped ect.
      Anyways I've gone over the carb multiple times and I've got it running pretty well. The only issue I have with the bike is that it sputters and pops around 1/2 throttle when I hold it there. When I give it full throttle from any RPM it runs great or when I give it about 3/4 throttle it spins up like a top to redline.
      Initially the popping and sputtering was way worse I made the situation better by moving the pilot jet up in a few sizes from a 45 (stock) to a 62. The issue has gotten way better since then but I'm not super sure what to do from here. Should I keep moving my pilot jet up in size because that's a pretty large jump right? I tried changing my needle clip position but that didn't help much if anything it just made starting it worse and little to no impact on the ride.
      Any input on this would be helpful. I don't want to buy other slip on. Also as for the rest of the carb I'm very sure everything else in it is what it needs to be at. I've replaced all the gaskets and O-rings cleaned all the jets, valve holes ect. fixed the accelerator pump timing. I just thinks its strange that my pilot jet size is going so far from the stock 45, but all symptoms point to the bike running lean.

      Hi I was wondering if y’all have been using a 450 on your YZ250F?

      Excel Takasago 17x3 front and 17x5 rear supermoto wheels with Metzler M3 tires in very lightly used condition. Less than 200 miles total on the setup. Warp 9 spokes. Rear has a Talon hub with 45T Sunstar steel sprocket and OEM rear disc, and front has a polished OEM Yamaha WR450F hub (for the stock speedometer), with a Motomaster 320mm disc. Included is a DID gold o-ring chain, 14T front sprocket, and front brake caliper adapter for a truly turn key setup. Everything is in excellent condition, not a single scratch on these wheels. Came off my '11 WR450F, but will fit many different Yamahas with 20mm front and 22mm rear axles. Asking $1400 plus shipping.
      **Will be driving up near Atlanta, then to northern Louisiana, OKC, and down through Dallas and Houston, TX soon -- can meet or deliver if in the area (Aug 31-Sep 9)**
