Edelbrock Carb Modification - Honda XR650R (Fireball Prevention)


Agent2

When installing an Edelbrock carb on a Honda XR650R, one thing that should be done is filing down the front right corner of the carb. If this is not done, the sharp corner can rub a hole in the bottom of the stock gas tank resulting if fuel loss or worse. It only takes a few minutes to do, the carb does not have to be removed, in fact, it is easier to do with it installed. File only enough to remove the sharp corner, the integrity of the clamp will not be weakened, and by doing this, your pig won't become a fireball out on the trail.

Special thanks to Dafna for taking and posting photo's.

      I just rebuilt the carb on my 2006 Honda CRF250R and I'm having issues with idling. I used a full rebuild kit and replaced every jet and gasket/seal. I fired it up for the first time and it idled a little low but steady with the choke out. I bogged it out when trying to give it gas and then it hasn't idled since. I have to constantly be twisting the throttle and it only runs when the accelerator pump is injecting the fuel but it dies if I hold the throttle open. Any advice?

      I have a 1979 xl185s that ran when I bought it. Soon after, it threw the timing chain so I had to pull it all apart and pull the motor. I replaced the timing chain and put it all together and now, only get 1 spark then the kill switch or key are OFF. If it is on,  I get nothing but when I turn it off I get one small spark and none after that. I am really stumped here and I need some help. Thanks,

      Evening Guys,
      There has been a few discusions on this topic now but I'm struggling to find and exact answer and keep get given different suggestions
      I have just purchased a 2004 CR 125, are the CRF wheels interchangable? From what I gather the rear wheel is from 02-13, but I'm struggling to find an answer about the front wheel and an exact answer on whether the rotar etc will need changing 
      Thanks
