Question about Yamaha YZ 125 Motorcycles
I would first make sure the power valve is decarboned and moves smoothly. Jetting is trial and error as so many things can affect the mix. Temp. humidity, gas quality, oil ratio etc. Tht being said you can make small changes and keeping a log with results. First write down baseline settings. Include main jet and pilot jet numbers found stamped on the jets and needle number. You don't say where it is you are trying to get power. 125s have poor bottom mid power, it is all on top for racing. Don't change and race or you may keep going when you should stop and melt something. Try to test at the altitude where you will race and read the plug often, cleaning or changing the plug between tests. Be alert for the surging feel of lean mix with racing idle do not let this continue. Remember 0 to 1/4 throttle, pilot and needle base width. 1/4 to 1/2 throttle controlled by needle mid taper. 1/2 to 3/4 throttle needle tip and main. 3/4 to full is the main jet. Find out the stock settings and make sure to start near there. I don't know about a spes pipe but pro circuit has charts for jetting and maybe a support line. I really feel you will get more from a clean powervalve, repack the silencer, clean airfilter and maybe v-force reed. Gearing can offer some options. I just read about a James Dean jet kit for cr250 that puts more power in the low mid. I might try that for my bike. Good luck, just remeber " too lean, too long- too bad"

Yes, people flying across few time zones may be able to adjust without noticeable effects of the time change. Those flying across many time zones will likely develop noticeable symptoms of jet lag.
