Jet Sizes In Measurement???fcrmx39

Hello i am in the middle of an FCR conversion on my DR650 and i just happen to be one of the 30% that has a #70 slow air jet stock as opposed to the required #100 now i have one on order through the local yamaha but me being the kinda guy we all are i starting thinking about the actual size of the #70 compared to the #100 and i just happened to have had a very well stocked tip drill set so i grabbed all of my main jets mic'd a drill at 1.6mm and stuffed it through the 160 main mmm mmm pefect fit tried a 145 with a bit mic'd at 1.45mm yet another pefect fit ? coincedance? maybe so i tried a 150 main jet with a 1.5 mm bit, yup perfect fit, so this leads me to think a #70 slow air jet is in fact a .70 mm diameter? what sucks is the smallest tip drill i have is a .79 so in the interest of all things cool i started drilling and the amount that came out on the 1st bore leads to think i am right? i than proceeded to go up until i reached 1.00mm thus maybe a #100 slow jet? i am steps away from reinstalling the carb and trying thisout but i quite honestly don't have a clue on what differance the jet change makes???

thats correct 100 is 1.0mm.

      Hi Guys,
      So I recently bought a 1997 XR400. I've done some research into getting more power through some basic mods and rejetting the carbs. Though all of the ones I've found have been for post 98 XR400s so the stock carb set up is a lot different. Usually people are opening up the airbox, exhaust ect. ect. and Jetting their carbs up to 160/162 for mains around 60 ish (I think) for the pilot. However for the 97 model this is close to stock for the jets.
      So essentially what Im asking (Just to cut to the chase ) Has anyone got a 96/97 (maybe 98, not sure) XR400 and has done these similar mods, and what sort of jetting have to done as a result.
      Thanks in advanced, also its my first post so apologies if I havent done everything correctly.

      38MM Cast SmartCarb. Purchased a couple years ago for a yz250. Don't have the bike anymore, and it has been sitting around for about a year. Used, but in fine working condition. You can also purchase a different needle for different bikes, as well as rebuild kits from their website.
      Asking $250 shipped to continental United States. I can arrange other shipping options at the buyers expense.

      Hey guys I just bought a bike last night. So the seller said the bike will turn on but then die. We didn't try it because it was really late at night and it was raining (seat was wet). But he said if you bump start it, it will turn on and ride. So what do you think the problem is? I just want to make sure it runs... I probably won't be able to bump start it till Saturday (rain)... It's a four stroke, and I know absolutely nothing about them. Thanks.

      I know this topic has been discussed in the past, but I have not found any options available for the new 2018 bikes. I live and work for a new Beta Dealer (Auburn Extreme Powersports) in California, and we are having a difficult time mapping the RR-S bikes for full FMF exhausts. We have tried contacting Beta Support several times for this issue to no avail, and we typically are given the runaround when transferring to techs and secretaries. From what we can gather, the FMF flash is designed for the RR bikes, but not the street-legal counterparts. Every time we try to install the FMF map onto an RR-S errors occur, and the programmer screen goes virtually blank. We have heard through the grapevine that some are using the RR maps on the RR-S with success, but we have yet to try it, even on our own bikes for fear that it will permanently erase or damage the CDI. Any and all help or suggestions regarding this topic would surely be appreciated! Thanks, Ben.
