07 YZ450 bog issue and hot idle

Recommended Posts

My good friend has an 07 YZ450 that bogs when you twist the throttle to say pick the front end up as you approach and obstacle in front of you. It didn't do this last fall when he bought the bike. We have cleaned the carb, done the o-ring mod as a cheap fix on accelerator pump spring to see if the Merge racing spring would help. Nothing seems to work. Also will not idle when it is hot.

Your slide needs some attention. There is a seal/gasket on the back side that wears out. Sudco has a rebuild kit.

Check your Ac Pump passage.....the one on the bottom of the carb body....with the float bowl off..Its the acc pump passage that goes through the carb body to the nozzle...If that bike sat for any period of time I bet thats clogged.

The fact the engine won't idle hot is a clue in this issue. You need to try and figure out FIRST is the engine getting too much fuel idleing hot or is it starving for fuel ? Don't just go changing carb parts on assumptions from the internet it gets EXPENSIVE when you incorrectly replace a perfectly good part. When the engine is hot pull the sparkplug and see if it's dry or wet with fuel this will give you a clue as to what to check next. Does the bike restart easily after it stalls hot ? Does the bike have consistant power cold to hot running ? Do you see any blackish exhaust smoke on acceleration ? We need more details to accurately help....

Sounds like a rich pilot circuit to me. Does it seem to load up before it dies when it gets hot? What jetting are you running?

If you think its rich push your hotstart and see what happens. Does it clear up? If so its rich.

      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)**
