1984 XR250R

Recommended Posts

I've just rebuilt an 84 XR250R. I've read that Honda

stock jetting causes it to run hot. Does anyone have

any experience with this model? I have the stock jets

installed 108 main and 105 secondary.

Thanks

I've had decent luck with raising both needles 1 position and going up one size on the primary main. I left the secondary main alone because I'm not at full throttle all that much.

Basically you just want to get it as rich as you can where the bike still runs well.

Cool, I'll give it a shot. But first I have to fix an oil leak out of the counter shaft. I replaced the seal while I

had the case split but I must of nicked it while putting it

together. I just hope I dont have to split the case to fix it.

I just bought one of these.  Removed the needle from the 2nd carb and the clip was in the top position.  I moved it to the middle position, which is the 3rd position.  So it that stock?  I don't know what position the 1st needle is in (yet).
