Jetting Help after piston and cam install

05 CRF 250R

I just finished rebuilding my bike with a JE Hi Comp piston/ Hot Cams Stage 1/ and Big Gun Rev Box. I also added a External fuel screw at the same time.

The bike had a JD Jet kit allready installed and ran very strong before the rebuild. I have it all broken in and the bike now has a huge mid to top bog. Any ideas would be appreaciated. Thank you.

so when you acclerate hard off the corner,the bike revs and responds but gets to mid rpm bogs than goes again?

or just bogs when open the throttle quickly?

Bogs when you are accelerating going through the gears or coming out of a corner, then goes again.

what is your current jetting set up?

JD Kit w/ 180 Main / Red needle 5th clip I think / Quickshot

Would it being cold out that day have that much affect ? I just realized it was a little cold.

Thank you for all your help.

how cold?

40 Deg. I also just checked the valves and they were just a little tight, and I am in the process of reshiming.The bike is also taking about 15 kicks to start cold. Before it started 2nd kick.

once you get the valves shimmed use the method at the top of the forum in the sticky thread to set up your pilot circuit.

I just got it toghether. It started very quick and ran strong around the block. I guess I need to get it on the track and see if it is still bogging. Thank you very much for your help.

      Hi Guys,
      So I recently bought a 1997 XR400. I've done some research into getting more power through some basic mods and rejetting the carbs. Though all of the ones I've found have been for post 98 XR400s so the stock carb set up is a lot different. Usually people are opening up the airbox, exhaust ect. ect. and Jetting their carbs up to 160/162 for mains around 60 ish (I think) for the pilot. However for the 97 model this is close to stock for the jets.
      So essentially what Im asking (Just to cut to the chase ) Has anyone got a 96/97 (maybe 98, not sure) XR400 and has done these similar mods, and what sort of jetting have to done as a result.
      Thanks in advanced, also its my first post so apologies if I havent done everything correctly.

      38MM Cast SmartCarb. Purchased a couple years ago for a yz250. Don't have the bike anymore, and it has been sitting around for about a year. Used, but in fine working condition. You can also purchase a different needle for different bikes, as well as rebuild kits from their website.
      Asking $250 shipped to continental United States. I can arrange other shipping options at the buyers expense.

      Hey guys I just bought a bike last night. So the seller said the bike will turn on but then die. We didn't try it because it was really late at night and it was raining (seat was wet). But he said if you bump start it, it will turn on and ride. So what do you think the problem is? I just want to make sure it runs... I probably won't be able to bump start it till Saturday (rain)... It's a four stroke, and I know absolutely nothing about them. Thanks.

      I know this topic has been discussed in the past, but I have not found any options available for the new 2018 bikes. I live and work for a new Beta Dealer (Auburn Extreme Powersports) in California, and we are having a difficult time mapping the RR-S bikes for full FMF exhausts. We have tried contacting Beta Support several times for this issue to no avail, and we typically are given the runaround when transferring to techs and secretaries. From what we can gather, the FMF flash is designed for the RR bikes, but not the street-legal counterparts. Every time we try to install the FMF map onto an RR-S errors occur, and the programmer screen goes virtually blank. We have heard through the grapevine that some are using the RR maps on the RR-S with success, but we have yet to try it, even on our own bikes for fear that it will permanently erase or damage the CDI. Any and all help or suggestions regarding this topic would surely be appreciated! Thanks, Ben.
