If anybody wants a set of silver 2016 250x wheels I'll trade straight up. Maybe even throw in some cash. Seriously. I love those blue rims.

Yep I think they look trick!  Reminds me of the Husaberg rims....

If it ain't broke don't fix it! Just put some pimp ass blue rims on it and kick the sh!t out of some KTMs!

I just had a conversation about manual roll up windows and how they got the job done without a set of keys or a battery. E-start without a kick start sounds like what I need deep in mountains. A headlight would be nice, but I afraid of the dark.

I know I just started riding again after a long layoff (and was much younger then) but frankly I don't think I ran into an issue where I truly needed eStart.  Yes it makes it easier, much like power windows, but it's a dirt bike......  not having it is not a huge deal to me.....  now, I'm hating my jetting bs but it's a 2t motor.

Be patient make one change at a time and don't skip sizes. You will get to know the settings.

I love the blue rims, they honestly look great. After a summer of riding in the rocks and mud and a few tire changes though I think my silver rims will look better

I love mine. I think the blue won't be as nice when it's scuffed up but so far everyone is jelly. 

I keep reading about the turbincore 2.1. Why do they list them on FMF if it's pre production thing they never made. ??

has this changed since the last thread I read?  

I ordered a gnarley pipe and was thinking about a silencer so I can drop them both on at the same time and eliminate jetting issues that may occur two times.

I really regret selling my 250x but I was so sick of trying to get the jetting dialed in, given more time I think I could have worked it out. I think a Kehein 38mm carb would have been the ticket and made the bike rip even more. But I had a guy basically beg me to sell it to him and offered enough to get me to sell it

I have always found jetting to be very simple. I start with the pilot one step at a time and progress to the other circuits as needed. KISS.

I have a new tc 2.1 on my 250x..  So far on this bike I have used the stock silencer, a TC2, a PC 296, and now the 250x version TC2.1.   It is bigger, but a bit quieter than all the others..

LOL... your right my bad.. Having an idiot moment, been looking at KTMs and those are 36. I did put a STIC metering block in mine and that helped with power but jetting was still a bitch.
