jetting my trx450r

what is the best jetting combination i have a dyno jet kit stg1-2 my elevation is 650-1460 hmf slip-on stg 1 hotcam uni airfilter and the hrc airbox lid i put the clip on the third notch on the needle. what do u guys recommend what size jet where the clip should be at on the needle and how many turns on fuel/air screw i have already jetted with a 160 jet clip on the 3rd notch on the needle and 2 turns out on fuel/air screw it idles good but has hesitation at times and when i stop and let it idle for a few min i then try to take off and it has a real bad hesitation like a popn crackin sound like its sucking too much air or gas and i half to rev it out a min or two so it will clear up like i said WHAT DO U GUYS RECOMMEND AND WHAT HAS WORKED BEST FOR U GUYS any hlp would be appreciated thnks

Do you live in an area that has Alcohol (methanol, ethanol, or isopropyl) mixed with the gas? Alcohol will combine with moisture and fall out of the gas. The mixture can include other additives from the gas and can be anything from clear to a cloudy brown. BTW - today's gas (especially when blended with alcohol) degrades rapidly. It's best to use fuel within 30 days of purchase and dispose of if over 90 days old.

A good rule to live by is: always shut off the fuel to the carb, drain the carb, use the highest octane "pump" gas available in your area and use non-alcohol blended fuel if possible.
