    Engine will not come down to idle still......

    Have you checked to see if the slide plate is upside down? This is a common error. Terry

    Virgina City GP

    Here are a couple of pics from the April 27-28 VCGP, Virgina City, NV. The trusty stead and I both finished 105 miles with no mishaps. Best race I've seen in years!!
  9. Mike, Just west of Laughlin up in the canyon is where the Best in the Desert and MRAN races are held. You'll find lots of riding just off the highway. Terry

    Fuel Screw Question

    The 00 WR400 doesn't have to be de-octopussed. It came with the same carb at the YZ426. As Taffy said, try adjusting it. 1/8 to 1/4 turn will be noticable for a stock setup. If you have removed the airbox cover this may be all it needs. Terry

    Ideal WR426 Off-road set up?

    OW595, I found that the WR with its wide ratio trans and heavier fly wheel made a perfect all purpose bike. Also, having a light to the off chance of getting catch in the dark is nice. If you are looking to purchase a larger YZ tank anyway, why not put it on a bike that will give you the best of what you want with out a large price impact. For an additional $80-$100 you can have a YZ seat for that tank. The suspension on the WR is not as harch as the YZ since it is aimed at the cross country set instead of motocross, so you may be close to the setup you want out of the box. You already know the YZ setup is harsh, but the package handles well. Imagine a plush suspension with the same geometery. MY 0.02 worth. Terry

    Slime for avoiding flat tires?

    I've used slime for years and had great success. I have taken tires off to change and found that slime had stopped small holes. The small pump might be a good idea on a mountain bike tire, but your arm will be falling off before you finish pumping up a motorcycle tire. It would make do in a last ditch effort. I've ridden 50 miles in a rock race to finish without damaging the rim, if you take it easy 9 times out of 10 you don't have to change that tire until you get back to the truck. My 0.02 worth. Terry

    Its a WR tank, so yes to the WR seat. I have use the WR tank and seat up until this last weekend and never though about it much, but I got a steal on a YZ tank and seat so I'm trying it out this weekend at the season opener. Looks like snow, this ought to be interesting. Terry

    i am switching pipes

    I have the power bomb and PCIV silencer with YZ timing and have found that the jetting suggested by FMF is very close, even with the 4000-7000 ft elevation I ride. See my signature for the details it should be a good starting point. You may find you can lower the main one size, but I've not run into the fouling or starting problems with this setup. Terry
