2005 CRF450R main jet

i know this might not be in the exact thread.. but what size is the 05 main jet... in the service manuel it says 170.. i was just making sure thats right

thanks

Stock jetting on my '05 CRF450R, and what is stated in the manual:

Fuel Screw: 1 7/8 turns out

Pilot Jet: #42

Needle clip: 4th from top

Needle: NGGQ

Main Jet: #168

Other stock jet sizes, IIRC:

Slow Air jet: #100

Leak jet: #55

Starter (choke) jet: #70

IIRC, my '05 also came with an alternate #170 main jet, in a Honda parts package, along with the manual, spoke wrench, and plug wrench. I guessed it was for cold weather riding, but never used it after installing a JD jet kit.

they also came with 165 in the early production bikes.

ya i found out mine is 168 i appreicate it tho.. hey i got another question i ordered a slow air jet and the sizes i ordered are 40, 42, 45 are those the right size for the slow air jet

If you ordered those sizes, then you ordered fuel "slow jets", aka pilot jets. That is probably what you wanted to order if you are trying to tune your idle circuit.

The "slow air jet" is a completely different animal, and is rarely changed, only by a few super tuners, with extensive carb mods.

o ok so i probably ordered the right thing because we are making the main jet smaller cuz its running way too rich.. and my dad also might wanna change the slow air jet

I find it hard to believe that it is way too rich on top, with a #168. Are you sure you have the correct stock needle, and the clip in the 4th postion?

My factory jetting was a bit lean on my '05.

I have never heard of anyone with a stock carb needing to change an air jet. It just isn't done normally.

well just to let you know i really cant tell you much about carburators.. my dad is the 37 year mechanic and can do this in his sleep..

but trust me everything is stock on it except i changed the airfilter.. and it fouls out spark plugs instantly and hard to start.. it runs once u get it started.. but then u pull the spark plug and its as black as night..

he just wants me to get the parts incase we need to change stuff on race day or something like that.. the main jet on mine is 168 and i am going leaner to a 165 or 162

      I have a 2005 CRF450R with a Trail Tech fan kit installed. I need a little bit larger tank and would like to know if anyone has an aftermarket tank that fits with the fan kit.
      I dont need a monster 4 gallon, just maybe a 2.4 or 2.7 from IMS would do fine.  I talked with both the tank vendor and Trail Tech and neither could give me any answers.
      Thanks guys.

      So I emailed Factory Connection today to see what spring rate I need for the rear as I’m about 6’2” 220 lbs without gear. I also asked for a baseline front fork PSI to start at. This is what I received:
      Nicholas, 
      The spring series we made for your bike is limited when it comes to larger/stiffer rates.  
      The spring rate you need is 5.9/6.0 range. We don’t sell that over the counter as it requires special installation process.  So we can’t sell the spring “over the counter”.  It would have to be installed at our shop.  
      Fork PSI I would recommend:
      Inner 160 psi
      Outer 11 psi
      Balance 160 psi
       
      Are they blowing smoke up my ass? What kind of ‘special installation’ could a spring take? I’ve changed and removed them before but not on a 16’ CRF before.
      Also, aren’t those psi settings for the Kawasaki KYB? I don’t think the psf2 have inner/outer/balance do they? Maybe he was having a bad day...or maybe I’m an idiot. FC’s website list there spring as ALS-0059. Can I not just order this spring and install it to set my sag correctly? Help?
