    Front Sprocket Nut Size?

    I planned on borrowing a socket at work today to remove the nut that retains the front sprocket on my WR400. Of course, I forgot to measure the wrench flats on the nut before I left ... Anyone know off hand what the wrench size is for the front sprocket nut? THANKS!

    Front Sprocket Nut Size?

    Cool - thanks Missle!
  3. Does being street legal add any value? I think it's worth a few hundred. Here in the Seattle area prices are inflated a bit. Most '99 WR400s are going for about $4000-$4700. I got mine for $4000 and felt good about it. Anyways, I hate seeing all these good deals right after I bought mine !

    Pilot Screw Question

    Good information. In the overall scheme, in is lean, out is rich. My real problem is I'm trying to rid of an off-idle bog, but that's a whole other topic. I'm back to WR timing from YZ (no comments - the type of riding I do demands gobs of low end power) and everything works great with exception to the bog. I've found a ton of info on jetting with the YZ timing, but not for the WR with my specific setup. What is my setup?... WR timing, FMF PowerBomb, White Bros. E-series w/8 plates, 168 main, 45 pilot, 60 starter, DTM needle clip-4. Carb is clean, air filter is clean and dry, starts easy, etc. Any help would be appreciated - I know the jetting subject has been saturated... thanks.

    Pilot Screw Question

    Sorry for being green about the WR - I just got one. Question - the pilot screw under the float bowl on the carb...does it meter air or fuel? Thanks.

    wr400 red hot header

    Thanks for the feedback. Anyone else experiencing the glowing header on their 400/426? I need a few more yes's before I feel OK about it...

    wr400 red hot header

    The pipe glows before the bike is even fully warm... probably takes a minute or two. The exhaust temp must be really high and/or the header is abnormally thin. I've now heard this is normal from everyone I've asked - still gives me the creeps!

    Grey wire

    I'm going to add a switch in-line so I can toggle back and forth between gray line and no gray line... Should give a good indication of whether or not it does anything.

    wr400 red hot header

    I just bought a '99 wr400. The guy changed over to the YZ cam timing, put an FMF header on it, and supposedly had it jetted at his local shop for this setup. At idle, the header turns faintly red hot. Also, I get a major hesitation if I gun it at low rpm. This tells me it's jetted too lean - but I'm new to the bike and could be wrong. BTW, it runs great above idle and starts easy. Can anyone provide a pointer or two? I don't want to ride it with a red hot header. Thanks.
