Putting an in line on/off on fuel injected bike

Recommended Posts

I'm considering putting and on/off valve on my fuel injected crf250r. I've been having an issue with a leaky fuel injector because of the gas left in the line. My thinking is if I put and on/off in the line between the pump and the injector and switch it off and allow the bike to run what's left in the line then I won't have anymore issue with the injector leaking while just sitting there. In my head the idea should work so I was just curious what everyone else thinks or maybe my thinking is flawed.

Putting a band aid on the problem is the wrong approach.

The injector  should hold the fuel pressure. The pintle may have trash  build up on it.

The thing I'm concerned with is on my particular bike is that I have read in a lot of cases even changing the fuel injector will not solve the issue. I don't want to go spend a few hundred and replace it all and still have the same problem.

You run a serious risk of destroying the pump, if you put in a cut off on the input or output side.

 

It needs to back pressure created by the nozzle orifice, and nothing else.

 

Letting the bike idle for 30 seconds before shutting it off will help the gas dripping issue almost completely, along with cleaning the nozzle using the 9v battery method.

The 9v battery method I guess is when you use it to open the fuel injector and clean it out that way?

I looked I into both of those things today. Along with a new fuel filter for the fuel pump. Ordered the parts and I'm gonna pull the throttle body apart this weekend to get the injector. Hopefully this will fix it.

I have also done some reading on that and it seems like a pretty good idea. I just need to find the wiring diagram before I do it. Hopefully changing out the filters and cleaning out the tank along with the switch for the pump will help my issue. I've also seen that some people have tried what Honda recommended as far as the warm up and it seems to help some of the people so ill probably try that too.

      Anyone else have 130 main and 38 pilot jets already in the carb I took the wifes ttr 230 carb apart to add the bigger jets and this bike from 05 that I bought new already had them in it? I was reading that they came with a 125 main and a 36 pilot.

      Hello all.  Need a helping hand here..  
      I bought an older TT225 and am not about to spend almost $600 on a new carburetor for it. So I'm hoping someone can help me out with an idea of what (other than original carburetor) style, type and brand I should go with..  I'm also having a bit of trouble finding info on this bike.  It's a 1986 Yamaha TT225.  
      Thank you in advanced

      Hey guys, I went on vacation all summer and let my bike sit (2002 CR250). When I got back I ripped it apart and cleaned carburetor and put it back together and it started fine and ran alright, but idled really high. I adjusted the idle screw and realized it was a ridiculous amount of turns out. I can't remember exactly how many but id say 6+ turns out. My killswitch was a POS and didn't work anymore so I replaced it with an oem replacement. My last ride I crashed the bike pretty bad and I was off the bike for 2 weeks. I can't get the bike to start ever since I got installed the new killswitch. I think I wired it right I just replaced one wire at a time and it looked pretty straight forward. I verified it by testing spark while holding it in I was getting no spark but with it in running position it would spark. 
      Anyway I am just looking for some base settings for the Mikuni TMX to get my bike running again, my carburetor has a 35 Pilot and 380 Main jet which appear to be stock. I am located in Edmonton, AB, Canada which is about 2500ft and usually ride between 10-25 celcius.
      Thanks for any replies.

      Hey guys... so I have a problem... I took the bike at Cal City, broke it in, and while I was doing so, the bike was bogging in first gear (Yes, first gear). Also it doesn't idle at all. I have to keep blipping it otherwise it'll stall. So I adjusted the screw circled in image 1. Well I was listening to the sound of the of the bike, yet the rpm's weren't increasing, and it was still stalling. So then, I unscrewed the screw in image 2, well I found out that it was fully twisted to the right. So then, I twisted it to the left, still nothing; it was still stalling... where's the idle screw? I am sure that the screw in image 1 is for the air/fuel mixture screw, and the screw in image 2 is the idle screw, just broken? I don't know, any and every help would be appreciated.

      So Ive decided its time to pull apart my favorite machine and freshen it up, and I'm looking to make some improvements in the process. I already have a 3x3 mod and a JD jet kit done and it seemed to have changed the world. The stock bike just plain sucked and now its a lot better. I never expect 450 race bike power here but I know there is a little more and I'm wondering if the juice is worth the squeeze. I already plan to add a header and exhaust, an FCR39 carb and stage 1 hotcams. After some research it really seems like those places are where the gains actually come from, so would it be worth it to throw a 434 big bore kit at this bike or just stick with what I already mentioned and a new stock bore top end??? Also my rides are often solo and pretty isolated,how much of a reliability headache can I expect with these mods?
