  1. What is a good setting for the rear suspension sag?
  2. I have a fork that is leaking and I need to fix it. I don't have a manual yet and I was wondering what the oil levels should be? Any help would be greatly appreciated.

    2003 crf 150

    Hi I borrowed a 2003 crf 150 from a friend and I wanted to change the oil but I don't have the manual. How much oil do I put back in?

    Please Help Me Burned!

    Thanks guy's for the info. I leaned the blue needle to the second position and kept the 170 main in. The bike really hauls on top and quick on acceleration if the rev's are up.I give it a 9 out of 10. The only place I would like to improve is when I give it hard throttle from low revs like tight turns where it is really slippery traction.Here it has a little pop or hesatation then goes great. Any idea's? Thanks again you guy's have been great!!

    Thanks I'll try the clip position. Is there anything to do about the possibility of the acc. pump squirt problem?

    Hi Thanks for helping. It doesn't have the snap when riding. At steady with the 170 main it doesn't surge or anything. When throttling hard out of a turn it just isn't smooth at the 1/8 to 1/2 throttle position. There seems to be an off and on hesitation instead of smoothness. From idle if I nap it open it accelerates nicely and then drops down to a perfect idle. I was thinking of going to position 2 on the needle to lean it out a little. What do you think.
  8. I have 2003 WR450 with an open Hindle Pipe,JD Jetting kit, 2003YZ Exhaust cam, and Zip Ty air screw. I ride at about 500feet above sea level and the temperature is around 40 to 45 degrees right now. There doesn't seem to be any airbox modification's.This is a Canadian model bike. I had a 165 main , 48 pilot and the blue needle on the third position with the air screw 2 turns out. With this setup the bike pulled really nicely up top but seemed to stutter and hesitate at around 1/8 to 1/2 throttle then pull hard. I just put in a 170 main and kept everything the same and now it doesn't seem to pull as hard from the middle up but the bottom seems better! When I warm up the bike and then idle it the air screw seems to make no difference. If I turn it in all the way the idle doesn't change and if I screw it out upto 3 turns out the idle doesn't seem to change. I can get the bike to pull hard up top but I just can't find the crisp hard snapping feeling of the bottom. PLEASE HELP!!
  9. I have a 2003 wr 450 Canadian model.It has a YZ exhaust cam and Hindle competion pipe.I just put in a JD jetting kit. I used the Blue needle on position 4 with a 165 main jet ,48 pilot jet, and 2.5 turns out on the pilot air screw. On the top end it seems to run very strong but at barely over idle cruising there is a missing or surging feeling. It has some hesitation when excelerating down low and seems to backfire a bit. The tailpipe is a greyish black with a small amount of soot and when I did a plug chop the plug was a dry black. The throttle response just isn't that crisp the hard acceleration I'vehad on other bikes isn't there. Please help! :

    set up question's

    Does anyone know if a Canadian 2003 WR 450 has the grey wire and if so where do I find it. I just installed a JD jetting kit. I used the blue needle three down from the top and a 165 main jet with a 48 pilot jet.The air screw is turned out 2.5 turns. We are at around 400feet above sea level and the temperature is about 45-55 degrees. I haven't had a chance to test ride the bike yet but while in the shop I heated it up and it seemed to run very well except it had the dredded bog/stall when cracked open from idle. This is what I'm trying to get away from. I have a Hindle competition exhaust and YZ exhaust cam.
