95 xr 250 uncorking question.

Recommended Posts

I have a 1995 xr 250. Have a question about exhaust. It runs good but i think it would run better if i put an after market exhaust on it. I would like to know if this would work, also is there any rejetting that needs to be done? Any imput would be apperciated. :)

I really dont think you're going to gain much. The pre-96 pipe is pretty good already. Just replace the baffle with one that flows better.

I would not spend a ton of cash with aftermarket exhausts, especially on a 95 which has a less restrictive flow. I have a 2002 and simply removed the cap and baffle and replaced it with a billet power tip. These can be purchased on ebay for only $30. This tip creates a mean growl and certainly enhanced the performance of my bike dramatically. No jetting was necessary after the change.

Good luck

I would like to remove the baffle, but on this exhaust you cant. Its welded into the muffler. This is my boys bike and i'm trying to make it run a little bit better until we can afford to replace it with a newer model. He's out growing it. :)

Does the fmf come with the pipe, or do you have to cut and weld. What size of main jet did you put in it. Thanx.

These billet tips advertised on e-bay do not have usfs approval. Just a warning - and for the same money you can buy a pre-98 baffle (Baja sells this as HRC baffle, but the same thing can be had from service honda for less than $40?).

This gives you the option to insert a white brothers vortec or a "baja baffle" at a later date. Or switch back and forth between stealth and obnoxiously loud whenever you want.

Back to the '95 pipe question. My experience is that the stock pipe performed very well with the baffle removed and the noise wasn't completely obnoxious with it pulled out (but, I used to run 13 disks in my supertrapp way back when, so my memory may be distorted a tad). I ran a thumper insert in this pipe and it was very quiet - passed 94 db sound test. You can also pick up a baffle for an older XR model - like an '83 xr200 and I think it fits right in with a decent size outlet on it.

Is the bike in question an XR250L? Because the R model never had a welded in baffle.

What are the consequences of having a part not USFS (United States Fire Service?) approved? Does this only become problematic in highly regulated state parks? Do they actually inspect the type of cap? I have used it for about 6 months without a hitch. Just curious... Thanks.

Well if they do decide to check it then you can be ticketed as you dont have a legal spark arrestor.

      What’s up guys. Totally new here picked up an XR400R I live in the desert so I’m riding often and enjoy it. But I am having some issues with my  01 XR400R. I brought it out this morning for a putt and it seems to be choking up in the top of second. Like a bog an go bog an go. First seemed fine and third I didn’t make it high enough into the rpms to see. Before I brought it back to the garage. Yesterday I also changed the air filter back to an uni. I had seen the other one had a hole in it and the box was dirty gunned up and oily. I removed the airbox gave it a good clean out wiped everything down very well put a piece of screen over the snorkel Or where it used to be I should say. “Lightly oiled the filter.Also the spark arrester an tip for the bike it did not come with I ended up making one with a piece of flat steel and drilling holes. Whilst doing this. I found also a crack in the pipe. It almost sounds as like there’s a vacuuming or whistle? When revving.The first one I had made worked fine I had no issues. This one I am wondering maybe if it’s a cause of a little too much back pressure.So I’m assuming it’s either a Carb or exhaust problem. Or something that could totally be minuscule. Or major issue. Would definitely like some second opinions and any advice would be greatly appreciated. Thanks guys!

      My lanky 14 year old boy started showing an interest in riding MX/Off-Road so I sourced the best beginner friendly, yet dirt worthy, bike I could find: an Ol' Honda XR250R (2004). So far I've replaced a few clutch levers and perches with stock parts. That's gotten old and I'm looking to upgrade to an ASV or Torc1 type fold-able clutch/perch brake combo. Went to purchase online today and to my surprise there were no such parts listed for the XRs. I saw plenty of CRF/CRF-X choices and they seem to differ depending on generation. Obviously I can use nearly any perch/clutch combo as long as the two match; but I was wondering if anyone knew which of these levers was closest to stock? Also, will the first gen CRF250X brake lever work on the XR? These may be stupid questions to some; but I'd rather ask a dumb question than drop money on an ASV brake lever I can't use. Thanks for any help.

      Im currently in the market for an xr400r, and considering buying one that's had some heavy engine work done. The current owner claims to have bought it from a friend who's an XR enthusiast. The PO installed a big bore kit and high comp piston, as well as a xrs only pumper carb, rsw triple clamp, aftermarket clutch, street lights, and a whole bunch of bling.
       
      My main concern is the effect the upgrades will have on the engine's longevity. How much quicker will I be going through top ends with the setup on this bike as opposed to a stock setup, and should I be worrying at all about bottom end longevity as well? I wouldn't mind having to eventually redo the top end, but I don't want to deal with a race bike type top end rebuild schedule on an XR. 
      Is there anyone here who's running a bike similar to this one who can give some advice?

      I have a 2001 Honda XR400R. It has a whirring/grinding sound in the lower end and a vibration in the top end. I pulled the valve cover and everything looks good. Decompression lever looks to be in order. Anyone know where I should start looking or just rebuild the whole engine. Ballin on a budget, but really love this bike. It looks like it’s new otherwise. Oil was jet black and thin. Thanks in advance!
