You mean poppin and stalling?? My TE450 does that, do you run premium? my bike popped more when I was running regular. I think its just a husky trait.

I have thought bout the exhaust but i don't quite know how to seal it? (tried a high temp silicone but it just melted that, not sure if exhaust paste is the best for it but i might give it a try) 🙂 run regular unleaded but i could try premium i spose it wouldn't hurt. it dosent pop on overun witht the choke out if this makes a difference?

Sounds like you are running to lean in the pilot jet. Turn mixture screw out 1/2 turn and see if this helps - you should only be about 2.5 turns out for correct mixture. If you need to go out further than 2.3 to 3 turns you need to increase pilot jet size by one and start again. No popping when using choke makes sense given the choke is a rich mixture.

I did the Noble Woods enduro on sat. in South Burwick ME.

It had a good show of Huskys in the line up. Most were 08's.

Half the field houred out before the 2nd check. Lots of deep mud.

Once the bike got hot I couldn't keep it from popping and flaming out every 50 feet.

I thought I was spot on with my jetting. Am I lean?

Went out on it today to run it in, rode round for a bit and it popped and died instantly! a few minuites later started straight off the button, rode it a bit more and the same happened again, popped and died instantly. this is where i gave up on it and rode it back to the van and in the shed, is it running to lean? would this cause it to pop and die instantly? i hope hasn't ruined the rebuild its just had 🙂

My TE450 pops more when the mixture is lean. I installed an R&D remote fuel screw and it makes it a snap to adjust for different conditions.

Of course my life changed for the better when I installed a Keihin FCR after having a hard time with the Mikuni.

I would say than pop and die should be because the fuel screw very far from where it should be or you could have dirt in the carb.
