2005 Yamaha yfz450 running lean, i think?

Recommended Posts

i own a 2005 yfz 450 and i think it's running lean. when i get 3/4 to wide open it misses or cuts out. i have a k and n filter, yosh exhaust sytem and is jetted with a moose racing jet kit. main jet is dj132, pilot jet is dpjm048 and needle is set on #4. the fuel aire mixture screw was 1 and a 1/2 turns out but now 2 turns. spark plug is white. what should i do now?

Put a bigger main jet it. What size jets did the kit come with(I'm not familiar with moose brand jets)? The 48p sounds like a normal size, but I'm not sure about main. I used a gytr jet kit that came with my pipe and use main jets between 165-170 and pilots 45 or 48. If you'r screw is out 3 or more turns, you need a bigger jet.

Did any of the Suggestions fix your problem.....Everyone was right on top of it.....

Your Main jet Controls 3/4 to WOT......

Also,,,,,,,Make sure that the Float is set right..... To high will make it run Rich....Too low will make it run lean....When you do plug Chops......Make sure you use a new Spark Plug, Clean Air Filter and New Gas....If you can figure out a way to mark the 4 Different Positions of your Throttle location when you are Tuning it will be easier to identify the problem area for jetting....

The air screw is most effective between idle through 1/8 throttle.

The pilot (slow) jet 1/8 through 1/4 throttle.

The slide 1/8 through 1/2 throttle

The jet needle 1/4 through 3/4 throttle.

The main jet 3/4 through wide-open throttle

Check how you have you slide installed compare it to a service manual diagram. The design Yamaha used makes it easy to put the slide plates in backwards or upside down either way you'll get erratic running issues.

Glad to hear you solved your by re-jetting the carb. Did you install a larger main jet?

    • 2001 Quadrunner 500 Running Problems

      Hi all, Picked this bike up about a month ago, and started doing some work on it. I ordered a carb kit from China, but got tired of waiting for it so I went to the bike shop today and picked up a Shindy rebuild kit. Took the carb out of soak, it has been in there for a month, blew all the ports out, cleaned what I could with a guitar string, used air as best I could to make sure everything was clear. After I was satisfied the body was clean I out the kit in it. Got the floats set to 13mm as per the manual (well 12.87 on one side and 12.92 on the other, so close), set the pilot to a little less than 2 1/2 turns out (manual says 2 3/8 turns). Put everything back together and tried to start it, it started and had a week idle. I tried adjusting the idle screw and as soon as I turned it the bike died. Backed it out and tried again, same result. Left it backed out, started it again and gave it some throttle. As soon as the throttle is touch the bike dies. Changed the spark plug for a new one and checked the spark, good and really strong. I am thinking that I have a bad petcock and am not getting enough fuel to the carburetor. So when I press the throttle I am increasing air but starving for fuel, bike can't run on air alone so it dies. Does this line of thinking make sense? I am gearing up a bottle with a fuel line in it, so I can try gravity feeding fuel to the carb, just have to wait for the silicone to dry so won't be able to test till tomorrow.  If it turns out to be a bad fuel valve, I will most likely just replace it with a universal one. If I go this route, what do I need to do with the breather line off the carburetor that used to go to the OEM petcock? Block it off or leave it open? Any help, answers or other ideas of things to check would be greatly appreciated. I have a fishing trip at the end of the month and would love to have my bike running by then.

    • 2005 Honda Rancher bogs down and misses when accelerate

      I have a 2005 Honda Rancher 2-stroke. It's been sitting for a while. Yesterday I started it up and it idles well. When I tried to drive it, it bogs down and misses when I accelerate. Drained fuel, added new fuel and carb cleaner, and let it idle for a few minutes. It still bogged down, and I noticed a fuel leak under the carb. There's a tube from the bottom of the carb with something that looks like a filter. The gas was leaking from the end of the tube. Anyone have any ideas as to what the tube is, and what it actually does?

      Was using the quad the other day to shuttle wood from my pickup to my wood pile.  When the job was done I turned off the Quad and heard a bit of a racket from the front end.  When I got down underneath the sound seemed to be coming from the fan housing.  fan was moving in spurts and not quickly... much like a computer case fan that's had it's day.  What I know.
      Temp sensor is ok, as the fan tries to activate fan is getting some voltage as it is attempting to spin.  When I first bought it used I tested the fan direct to battery and it was fine. The fan was working ok even not direct wired as I went on a couple of rides and when stopped and idling the fan did run Seems to be free spinning with my finger read up in the manual and they require me to drop the rad.  now I'm not opposed to that as the rad has some damaged areas I want to try and straighten out.  But if I can get the fan working without, I can leave the rad as it is until next year.
      Fan assembly is about 300 bills, any work arounds or alternatives?  I even thought large computer case brushless fan.  smaller ones are about $7 larger ones better quality probably far below the 300.  They run standard 12v DC.
      Anything I should be doing before dropping the rad... other than check for obstructions even though it seems to spin, and trying to hardwire it to the battery again for a test to see if it acts the same?

      If we had a dollar for every time the question “Which is really faster, the 700 or the 450?” shows up in our inbox, mailbox, or voicemail, we’d be putting this magazine together from a bungalow on a barely inhabited tropical isle named Quadhama.
