  1. I had an exhaust leak at the head pipe which caused me to run pretty lean......popping on decel, glowing red head pipe and flames out the back I replaced my exhaust gasket and all is MUCH better now. The guys at the shop say that it's always a good idea to replaced the gasket when you take off the head pipe. My original still looked pretty good, but it still let air in causing a pretty awesome light show. Hope that helps!

    Jetting ? for Burned

    Thanks for the info flintlock28! I fixed most of the issue by following Dave's suggestion in looking at the head pipe.......my exhaust gasket was in pretty bad shape. I put in a new one, richened my main up to 160, put my pilot to stock (42), opened the pilot screw back to 2 turns out and all seems to be MUCH better. Although I miss the light show from the head pipe / tail pipe. Now I just need to play with the jetting a little to get in dialed in. I still hope to get Burned's suggestion on the jetting just to be sure.......

    Jetting ? for Burned

    Thanks, I'll check the head pipe as well. Can anyone confirm the following settings to make sure I'm not off? Stock is: Main 165 Pilot 42 Needle 4th clip Pilot Screw 2 turns out Current: Main 155 Pilot 40 Needle 3rd clip Pilot Screw 1 1/2 turns out Colorado Springs 6000 ft Temp 60 - 90 Just want to confirm my jetting as well so that I can lock it all down. Thanks!!
  4. I just installed a full ti Jardine RT system on my stock 04 YZ450 and have noted a few new issues. The bike ran fine before with a slight decel pop, but I now get more popping when blipping the throttle along with a nice FLAME! The bike idles fine with a slight hesitation down low. Any recommendations on jetting changes? Larger Pilot / Main Jet?
