After all the doom and gloom lately of tearing down engines and bad tuning I finally put in a good day of riding! Spent a few hours fine tuning the carb Saturday morning, then went out and ripped on the Honda 400ex for the first time. Fantastic little quad, good power and torque. Starting to learn wheelies, pretty stable platform. Also took some video of our ride, came out pretty cool, love my GoPro HD helmet cam.

Dropped in a 42 pilot jet, replacing the 38. Changed the original 178 main jet to a 170 (the largest the local dealership had). That jet was too lean, ended up getting it running good on the last clip on the needle, so I now I’m going to see what jets are between 170 and 178 and order two more sizes to fine tune the needle settings back to the center.
Looking forward to future rides…
