How about starting by reading the YZ jetting thread?

What bike, what year, what is the situation behind this? Has the bike been sitting for a while? Did it run properly when you bought it? Where are you in OK? I am in Tulsa and may be willing to help out if you are close. We need more information that it won't run if I gas it.


If you're yanking the throttle open as hard as you can from idle and expecting it to do anything else, you're just dreaming.

If, on the other hand, it won't take any throttle off idle, then your guess of a blocked main jet is probably right. It's idling on the pilot circuit but can't transition to the main circuit. It could be something as simple as water in the float bowl.

How about the CARB CLEANING thread.

How about cutting the guy some slack.
