How does this look?

Recommended Posts

I thought that it is showing the side that is facing the exhaust. This is a new plug with one day on it (85 miles). Currently trying to dial in the jetting. Is this good or bad?

I am irritated with the bog. It is not much, but it is irritating. I needed a valve adjust so I took it in and asked if they could set the fuel screw when they were done. The mechanic had mentioned that you will never get rid of it. I know you can't get the response of a 2 stroke, but I would like it to have the response of a 450r. Without changing the flywheel, tit. valves, etc.

what is the current jetting?

3,000 ' elevation (06 450xc) SX needle in 4rth position. Fuel screw 2 1/2 out. 45 pilot. 185 main. JD bowl with leak jet. JD kit rubber band on the accelerator pump squirt timing.

With 85 hard miles, is what the plug looks like. I like to come into corners hot, like from 4rth right down to 2cnd or 1rst, depending on the corner. This is when I notice the bog the most, sometimes the bike wants to cut out even.:applause:

what is the SX needle code?

The code is OBDVR which is actually the stock needle code. They made me pay $28 bucks for a needle that I already had.:applause: They told me it was an SX.

After the initial warm up? It is still there. Like I was saying, most noticeable when pulling out of a corner in 2cnd or climbing a steep climb with a break in the climb and then the climb continues.:applause: It will sputter and try to die out, sometimes it does.

sounds more like a float height issue to me.

Really, never thought of that. Any suggestions? Or where to go for info?
