    Popping

    Yeah i havent had a ride yet but id imagine thats solved half of it, might still go to #5 on the needle though see what happens. Ive got an aluminium hot start nut, i overtightned the plastic one the first time back on. Just want the bike running superb its my first race on sunday and ive chose to go in ythe ironman class on a 4 hour enduro. Do you think smashing out the second baffle will make a noticable difference power wise over knocking just the first one out. Once again cheers for the help .

    Cheers guys for all the feedback. After going over the carby, I found the hot start nut was a turn or so loose. Could this have any affect?

    Havent had the fuel screw out for ages since i put it in so the oring has to still be there, I might go to #5 as you suggest Matty.

    Popping

    what up Matty, I knew you would reply, haha. Yeah guys the bike runs great.It only did this last weekend when I smashed the baffle out. I have an adjustable fuel screw. Ive turned it out ot 2.5 with a 48 pilot, buit theres no way I should need a 50. It was running spot on when it wasnt so hot so if it was running lean should it have been running worse and got better as the bike heats up??? Like i said I washed the bike last night and took it for a ride around the block and everything is sweet, but i reckon when i take it out next as it gets hotter Ive got a feeling its gonna happen again. Ill see. Ive had the carby out and raised the pilot but that was a couple of weeks ago no chance Ive got the slide wrong way around. Maybe might be a bit of dirt some where or leak building?

    Popping

    I opened up my can on 05 wr450 and removed only the 1st baffle, left the spark arrestor in and have no tail pipe. It has really opened up the bike. Now I went for a ride yesterday and the bike runs great but when the bike really started to warm upit started to pop on decel and wouldnt idle so i upped the idle and then the revs started hanging . The bike also became harder to start and when the bike was hot the hotstart still wasnt needed. I could also pull the hotstart in at idle and the revs wouldnt rise. I admit I wound up the idle abit to keep it from stalling but today I wound it back down. Ive already got a 48 pilot in so I think a 50 will be over kill, needle is a red #4, and bike runs great wide open so main doesnt have to be changed. I had the fuel screw set at 2 out and wound it to 2 1/2 and it didnt really change. The bike runs great all round bar the popping and hanging Ive only got this week to sort it out coz theres a race on sunday, and i dont really have any ride time through the week> I havent played yet but I am thinking of richening the needle 1 clip, but apart from that this thing got me a bit stoked coz I think the jetting is rich enough, any thoughts?? I posted this in the exhaust mod thread yesterday but moved it to a new one today. What I did today was wash the bike and let it warm for a bit and took it for a ride round the block. Now there ws no popping and when I pul the hot start the idle rises which all seems fine, but the bike was not really warm like when you go for a good ride.????

    Modified stock pipe saves big $$$

    Sorry guys to bring up an old thread. I only just read this thread yesterday. I opened up my can on 05 wr450 and removed only the 1st baffle, left the spark arrestor in and have no tail pipe. It has really opened up the bike. Now I went for a ride today and the bike runs great but started to pop on decel and idle was hanging.

    wr450 settings

    Maybe I should of posted here originally instead of suspension. I posted up here a while ago for some help and since then I have set my sag, and been dialing the bike in others areas. What I do find odd is the Wr450 was one of the biggest selling bikes but I cant seem to find anywhere settings that work for various rider weights and terrain. I weigh in at 85 kg (187 lbs) without gear. I know there is not going to be one list, be all end all, but if any riders could post their setting, eg oil height, spring rates, clicker settings for a 2005 wr450 that would be really cool. Until i can afford to get my suspnesion done this is the only option. Im not having any luck setting it up myself, and when the suspension doesnt work properly it takes it out of you and becomes pretty much unejoyable.

    wr450 setup

    I set the rider sag at 105mm and the free sag is about 35mm. Does any body have any clicker suggestion of a rough starting point. SHould i change the fork oil from the standard oil still in there?

    wr450 setup

    Yeah i understand that , but how does one know when the sag is set correctly. Ive heard some people say 100mm, some say 115mm, and some people change it for different riding conditions.???

    wr450 setup

    Thanks for the replies guys. Ive still got the stock tyres on and the front end dint want to hold to well through the corners so id thought id lower the clamp on the fork to help turn in. Tyre pressure is about 12-13psi back and front. The bike was handling alright, until the suspension has i suppose bedded in then became way to soft. i hardened up the clickers a touch and it just doesnt handle too good. So shall I change the fork oil? And also what should i set the sag to 100mm( 4inches) ? How do you know when the sag is set right, especialy if the clickers are out of wack?

    wr450 setup

    Hey guys how you all doing? I purchased a wr450 a couple of months ago and the suspension was working ok but now has really softened up. ive messed with the clickers, but really havent spent heaps of time on it. It doesnt really handle anywhere like it should. it still has the stock fork oil in(any recommendations on oil ?), and i havent set sag yet. I raised the forks in the clamp to about 10mm above clamp. i weigh about 85kg and a medium paced rider. Any setting suggestions would be truly appreciated. thanks dan
