High altitude jetting question

I'm wanting to go race in Flagstaff AZ at the Cinders elavation 7,000ft. I have a 06 YZ450f jetted for 3000 ft. Main is 165 pilot is 45 and leak is52? not sure on that one bike runs perfect at my elavation. What is a good set up if anyone has run this race or knows the where to begin?


I had an 08 and rode in elevations that ranged from 4500 to 13000. I had an aftermarket exhaust but these should get you in the right range. I don't have leak jet specs as I used an adjustable leak jet setup but it was usually in the 45-50 range. I haven't done this race but terrain will also dictate what type of jetting. If it is super tight I would suggest a leaner setup but if the race is open and fast run a richer setup. Just my 2 cents, hope it helps.
