    1999 WR Carb Question

    I have a 1999 WR 400. With the top of the carb removed to access the needle, there is a set screw with a 14mm nut around it on the shaft. what is the function of this set screw? I started mocking around with the setting. What is the procedure for proper adjustment of this set screw? Thanks

    1999 Jetting

    I have done allot of research on the site since yesterday and could not find the relevant information for what I am looking for. Most of the links to the topic no longer exist. I have a 1999 WR 400 with approx. 1000 miles on it. I have not ridden the bike in couple of years (just turned it on for few minutes in the garage every few months.) I took the bike to my cabin in northern AZ and mucked around with the jetting, it was popping on deceleration up north. I brought bike back to PHX last week and it runs like crap. I have lost all of my reference material for the initial setup back in 2002. Current Jetting details: • Main jet: 172 • Pilot:45 • De-octopused ---- cant find the instructions on the site for the jetting details • Vortip exhaust insert • Uni filter • Grey wire cut • OBDVR clip on the 5th position • Pilot screw – all over the place! Can you guys give me the best setup for desert? BTW I did mix-up my MAJ, PAJ and other jets. I have the shop manual and my setup should be for the de-octopus version. Thanks
  3. I searched the site and did not see anything specific for this altitude. My 400 was re-jetted for sea level couple of years ago (don’t remember what the specs were). I moved the bike to my summer home (altitude is around 7000ft). It back fires on deceleration, also there is a little bit gurgling from ¾ to full throttle. I dropped the main jet from 175 to 165 – no change. Also dropped the needle clip to the 2nd groove from the top. PS: I have the stock can with the Baja insert, air box lid removed, and uni filter, gray wire is cut. What are your recommendations? Thanks

    Liability Insurance for the WR

    Well.............you need to call and ask them. I am paying total of almost $700/year for comprehensive, collision,uninsured, underinsured, liability in AZ all with $30/$300,000 limits. If I opt for comprehensive only (theft, vandalisim, acts of god, etc) it is around $100 a year. DO NOT ASSUME that your home owner insuarnce is going to pickup the tab. in most cases the only may pay for theft or vandalisim, acts of Gods) if the bike is sitting on your property.
