A utility knife works for me. Something very thin to break the bond between the washer and the flange of the bolt. Once this bond is broken, they come off pretty easy, sometimes just slipping off, sometimes requiring unthreading.

I usually use a pair of plain pliers. Straight grabbing the crush washer with the threaded part inside the jaws. Then simply unscrew the washer.

So I just picked up a Dynojet Stage 1 kit. I'm wondering how to pick what jet to use.... My machine appears to be running lean, I'm pretty sure it has stock jetting..

so from what I understand, you go to a smaller main jet for this..I have a 128,130,132,134,136 to choose from.

The bike mostly lives at sea level, I run a K&N filter, and a yosh Tailpipe of some description...No model given, It has some japanese on it, and says offroad.

I'm not too sure about wanting to do the 3x3 mod,thinking of dust/ water issues.

What is a good starting point for a machine running lean?

Well hears a thing I may have mentioned before
I just put two washers under the needle to raise it a bit and all is fine, I know cos it runs great and I just change a plug and the colour is good on the old one
Other than that the engine is stock.

If it's lean, go bigger, not smaller. If you gotta ask this question, get some more experienced help, ya don't wanna burn a valve or piston. Read all the responses, raising the needle a tad sound like good advice.

I'm starting to think I should do as you, Sam. I've only got 30 miles on my 03, started modifications before I gave her a real test. She's been down about three weeks as I've gathered parts and started mods. Prolly would'a been better off if I'd just follow my own advice...

GO RIDE!!!!

2008, DRZ400S
3x3
Stock pipe, No Toil
JD jetting kit...

155 Main Jet
22.5 Pilot (stock) Kientech 2.5 turns out from gently seated
Blue Needle
3rd from the top
.

Recommended jetting from JD:

155 main jet
22.5 pilot jet with the extended screw, or 25 pilot jet with the stock fuel screw
blue needle
clip 4

I might try the needle on a different clip, but it is pretty good right now, 0-4000' feet is where I use it.

Ok thanks, but I didn't get the James Dean kit, I got the Dynojet...I guess I'll see what size the stock main jet is, it better be smaller than 136!!

So if I want to go more rich, I move the clip closer to the pointed end??
