low end bog 2008 yz 450f

Recommended Posts

I have been practicing at this track and there is a table to table into a triple and when I land off the second table and crack the throttle real hard in mid air close to the landing ramp to seat bounce over the triple it bogs real hard and I case it everytime. I have been playing around with the jets but nothing seems to be working. Would this have anything to do with the leak jet?

i personally would say, maybe you should clean your carbs out totaly?, maybe somethings plugged in that carb? i would check up on that, as far as low end bog, thats odd and im thinking a dirty carb will do that,

I'm not an expert but the o-ring mod might help as well as a boyeson quick shot

+1 on the oring mod!!

I did it to my 09 yz450f and boy did it make a difference. The bog is still there but it's 10 times better than it was. Also make get it rejetted to.

The quickshot is just so much bait to catch your money.

The O-ring mod is effective but the heavier linkage spring from Merge Racing is a much more workmanlike and permanent way to do exactly the same thing. The O-ring will eventually dry up, crack, and fall off.

Always remember that there is virtually no way to have your bike capable of tolerating an instant idle to WOT snap of the throttle without it adversely affecting other facets of the engine's performance, and it shouldn't be expected to accomplish that without EFI (if then). Riders need to learn to "roll" the throttle open a bit more gracefully. Not really slower, just smoother. Still, if the engine won't respond reasonably well, it needs some improvement.

Gray, i've heard the quickshot helps but i've never actually installed one on my personal bike. So it's not worth the money?

I really think the quick shot isnt even worth getting. Get your carb jetted and get that stiff AP spring or do the oring mod and ride:ride:

The only time a quick shot will make any improvement is if the OEM check valves in the pump cover are leaking, or seating inconsistently. Otherwise, it's not really much different than the stock part it replaces.

Yep QS, QS2, and QS3 all they are is carb bling thats about it for the same price it cost you can buy every jet known to man. spend some time and just get it jetted correctly.

What I don't understand is i have been riding this bike for two years now and it just started doing it. I installed a fmf slip on muffler, went one up on pilot and one up on main jet. I mean don't get me wrong the bike rocks, I rarely ride the bike from close to 1/4 so the big is notvthat big of deal, but I'm screwed if I have to seat bounce something out of a corner or on a rhythm section.

I have an 07 and had similar problems. I wouldnt whack the throttle but at slow speeds it was a bear to ride and had nothing in the bottom end. I ordered a james dean jet kit and it solved those problems pretty awesomely. Really woke the whole bike up. I imagine though that the low end was fixed because of the o ring mod.

For sure, that JD kit is the "magical" fix for so many brands of bikes. I've seen riders tinker and mess with their jetting for an eternity, and come close (or for some get even worse, ha), but when they finally listened and ordered the JD life became a whole lot easier!

      Selling an FMF Power Core 4 exhaust system off my 450FX. Exhaust has 80 hours and is 100% functional. This will also fit the 14-15 YZ450F and 16-18 Wr450F. If needed I can also include new muffler packing although it does not need it.

      I have a 2008 YZ450F with a stock header pipe and Pro Circuit T-4 Slip-On Exhaust. I'm 99% sure the slip on is shot because its loud as hell and when I take it off and shake it it rattles. I would repack it but the screws are all stripped ect.
      Anyways I've gone over the carb multiple times and I've got it running pretty well. The only issue I have with the bike is that it sputters and pops around 1/2 throttle when I hold it there. When I give it full throttle from any RPM it runs great or when I give it about 3/4 throttle it spins up like a top to redline.
      Initially the popping and sputtering was way worse I made the situation better by moving the pilot jet up in a few sizes from a 45 (stock) to a 62. The issue has gotten way better since then but I'm not super sure what to do from here. Should I keep moving my pilot jet up in size because that's a pretty large jump right? I tried changing my needle clip position but that didn't help much if anything it just made starting it worse and little to no impact on the ride.
      Any input on this would be helpful. I don't want to buy other slip on. Also as for the rest of the carb I'm very sure everything else in it is what it needs to be at. I've replaced all the gaskets and O-rings cleaned all the jets, valve holes ect. fixed the accelerator pump timing. I just thinks its strange that my pilot jet size is going so far from the stock 45, but all symptoms point to the bike running lean.

      Hi I was wondering if y’all have been using a 450 on your YZ250F?

      Excel Takasago 17x3 front and 17x5 rear supermoto wheels with Metzler M3 tires in very lightly used condition. Less than 200 miles total on the setup. Warp 9 spokes. Rear has a Talon hub with 45T Sunstar steel sprocket and OEM rear disc, and front has a polished OEM Yamaha WR450F hub (for the stock speedometer), with a Motomaster 320mm disc. Included is a DID gold o-ring chain, 14T front sprocket, and front brake caliper adapter for a truly turn key setup. Everything is in excellent condition, not a single scratch on these wheels. Came off my '11 WR450F, but will fit many different Yamahas with 20mm front and 22mm rear axles. Asking $1400 plus shipping.
      **Will be driving up near Atlanta, then to northern Louisiana, OKC, and down through Dallas and Houston, TX soon -- can meet or deliver if in the area (Aug 31-Sep 9)**

      Hi I’m new on the forum and I was wondering if a 2001 Yamaha YZ426f clutch is interchangeable with a 2002 Yamaha YZ426f clutch thanks , Coleman
