YZ 426 Jetting

I live in Dallas, Texas (only a few hundred feet above sea level) and ride my 426 with the stock jetting. I'm taking a riding vacation to Cloud Croft, NM in a few weeks which is 8,500 feet above sea level. I am concerned about whether or not I will need to modify my jetting for the increase in elevation. Does anyone have any experience with these types of elevation changes or successful jetting changes?

drop one main, raise the needle clip and dial in the PJ needle. Or read the many posts regarding high altitude jetting.



I have ridden in the Ruidoso area (about 30 miles north) recently and ran the exact jetting Fershy described but I also went one leaner on the pilot. That's probably not a big deal though.

In the summer you may even go two sizes leaner on the main...

But I've also ran the stock jetting at this altitude and it didn't run too bad at all, but I fouled a plug while warming it up.

I have never ridden in the Cloudcroft area, but it is less than a two hour drive for me so I would really appreciate some trail tips when you get back from your ride. Send me an email when you get the chance.



Hey Jay - tell us how the riding is at Croftcloud when you get back! Pictures?!?
