Yes you need to rejet your carb around a 165-170 should be a good place to start but you could go larger depending on other things that you have on your bike.

the four wheeler is completely stock and to my understanding there are 2 or 3 jets not just one. Do the other need to be adjusted or replaced with bigger ones. Thanks for the reply.

Well most people put a larger pilot jet in to make the 400 not so cold blooded.You can upgrade to a 42 pilot as far as a needle adjustment you won't have to adjust it at all.

I'm not sure I've never road a stock 400ex.You may need a larger main jet it just depends on how your plug reads but a 165 would be a starting place.

alright thanks that is a huge help so would you say to put in the 165 with the slip on and ride it for a bit then check the plug and adjust from there? what adjustment should be made if its too rich or too lean?

If it's too rich then you need a smaller main and if it's too lean you need a larger main.This time of year you will probably want to be on the rich side because of the weather getting colder.Then in the summer you can pull your air box lid and probably be dialed in for the hot summer weather.

No that is the pilot jet which is for idle.Altitude makes a difference also so if you are at higher elevations then you will have to adjust for that too.
