o-ring mod

I did the o-ring mod on my 250x and it worked great, the bog was completly gone. This was done after the bike was rejetted and was running great except for the little bit of bog that was left. After the success with the 2006 250x, I decided to do it to the 2007 WR250. Also after the WR was rejetted and all the mods to the intake and exhaust, gray wire, yz cam, etc. The 0-ring mod was a complete flop. The bike has less bog without the o-ring mod. The bog on the WR is not all that bad but, I was convinced that I could make the bog go away like on the 250x. Anyone else find that in some cases the o-ring mod did not work for them?

Did you read the entire thread regarding the mod?

There is more to eliminating the bog than just the oring. You need to have the correct size leak jet for the type of riding you will be doing and ensure the AP timing screw is set so the squirt just misses the slide.

I took a lot more time with the Honda and checked it all out, worked great. The Yamaha was set up by a previous owner and I did not check everthing as well as I should have. Bike ran great and the jetting seems to be dead nuts on, I will check the timing and squirt. The bog was slight enough that I thought I could get away with just adding the o-ring.

LOL, only if it was correct to begin with . Sort of a 50/50 hit or miss deal. Have to check it no matter.

If it was a simple as an Oring makes it better they would come that way. The Oring is one of many ways to adjust the AC pump which in this case is to increase the fuel pressure in the pump chamber

      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.
