I was searching this site looking for diagrams when I found a factory Honda service manual.... figured i'd help out others by posting the wiring diagrams. Sorry if they are dark but I was unable to upload the pdfs from my ipad.
CRF150 Wiring Diagrams
Could someone please explain the numbers on a needle jet for a mikuni carb? I'm currently running a 38-73 needle but a lot of the people I talk to say I would be happier running a 38-70 needle. I don't have a problem with going with what other recommend but I would like to understand the numbering for the needles first. I understand the nozzle sizes, main jet and pilot jet it's just this damn needle thingamobob
Thanks a lot
Hands down the nicest 00 or 01 you will find in the South East. These bikes are quite rare these days, especially in this condition. This era of cr250s were the best Honda produced, do some research!
This bike has been virtually completely rebuilt, runs like a beast, and looks incredible .Just about everything that could be cleaned, greased, and polished has been. I have a binder full of receipts and information to go along with the bike. Lots of little tricks done.
Below is a list of parts, service, and modifications that have been done on the bike 6 hrs ago (probably forgetting some):
Plastic Werks Replica Number Plate
Steel braided front brake line
Rear shock serviced
2 new tires
Keihin 38mm air striker carb (from a 2000) swap; custom jetted
10 oz Flywheel Weight
Cometic Thin base gasket (for a little extra compression)
vForce 3 Reed Valve
Stainless pipe springs
Power Valve Spacer
Hot Rods Crank
New Trans. Oil
Trades with cash for 2016+ KTM 350sxf or 2017 250sx only, if texting or emailing I will not respond unless you use code-word "Woody". No Title, just Bill of Sale.
To summarize things, I Recently made a purchase that i didn't honestly didn't do enough research into before hand. Basically I was living in south western Colorado where it was easy to plate almost any dirt bike, moved back to Pennsylvania and never really brushed up on my local laws here about the whole process of re-titling an offroad motorcycle here, because it's not quite as simple.
I Bought a 2013 Crf450r in hopes of ultimately making it into a dual sport. I basically want to know the key differences between the R & X models. And if some of these differences are easily interchangeable items between the two models to make the re-titling process smoother. Does anyone know of any kits to help the R make the transition
I live in a Rural / Mountainous area of Pa about 30 miles south of Pittsburgh, where highway riding that requires a speed higher than 55 would be a basically never occurring thing, so i'm also hoping the stock gearing will be fine.
Any tips or hard advice would be appreciated!
