If nothing has been modded then leave the main jet, for now. First try a larger slow jet and/or richen up the air-fuel screw setting.

slow jet = pilot jet?

why dont they include pilot jets in jet kits? they only include the main jet and needle :thumbsup:

Not quite sure what a "slow" jet is, my buddies mechanic just told me to go up one on the pilot. So thats what I did, and my bike doesnt backfire anymore. Go to your dealer and they should know what your talking about.

then theres the main jet.

Yes slow jet = pilot jet. Sorry, I'm a bit old-school.

ok and one more tiny question.

ive never fooled around with a pilot jet before, but ive done several main jets. the main jet has a number marked into it to tell you what size it is... how do I tell the size of my pilot jet? is there a number carved into it like the main jet?

thanks

Backfiring? Really? All the way back into the air-filter?

Ooooh, you mean Misfiring or popping.

Yeah, that's normal on a YZ. Too much = lean mix.

1) Turn the fuel-screw down (in) a 1/4 to 1/2 turn (which is actually a air screw).

2) if that doesn't do it, go up one in the pilot.

3) last but not least, move the needle clip down one position.

yes my bad, its popping.

he said he turned the fuel screw in 1/4 turn like I told him (like TT told me) and it fixed the problem within 5 minutes. no wonder everyone comes to me for help with their bikes!

thanks for the help, + gas for you too!

Not sure about the Yami's but sometimes if there is a poor seal in the exhaust system(i.e. where header meets motor) a bike will pop on decel. Permatex makes a exhaust sealant that works well.

It worked on my KTM. Hope this helps.:thumbsup:
