2005 XR650L - comment on jet size

Recommended Posts

Hey guys & gals, what's your opinion? Remember that the stock jets for a XR650L are 50/152.

I removed the airbox snorkel, installed a K&N filter, and put on a Supertrapp IDS2 Quiet with 10 disks. Rejetted to 55/158. Bike runs better, but seems to not be reaching its peak. Only reaches about 80 MPH on the highway and doesn't do roll-on wheelies in 2nd. Do you think I should bump up the jet size? :thumbsup:

Thanks for your opinion.

Installed the dynojet kit and don't know what to think. The snorkel is removed and so is smog junk, I am running a UNI filter and stock pipe. I have the air screw out 2.5 turns (tab is ground off) did not drill the slide (dynojet said not to) I installed the 160 main jet and the dynojet needle, and e clip in the 3rd groove with the washer on top of the e clip as stated in the instructions. (seems odd to me - unless it is only there as a retainer over the e-clip, I would of thought it went UNDER the e-clip to raise the needle? Bike starts and runs okay - maybe I was expecting too much. I can loft the front end in 2nd IF I can get it to hook up, lotsa rain here lately (Washingotn state, Whidbey Island) Do I need to install an aftermarket pipe to realiuze the full potrential of the rejetting?

Chicago,

Instead of rejetting, if you also trail ride at slower speeds, try new sprockets. Stock is 15/45 and I'm running 13/48. With that I still run a stock chain size and I don't have to continuously change between 1st & 2nd. I've (off road of couse) lifted the front all the way through 3rd. You will trade top end speed for the gear switch though. Hope this helps.

the stock needle is less than stellar with a decent pipe and snorkel out.

but either way,you need to be a 165 main jet.

Is that the Keihin or DJ jet size?

i dont know why people mess with dyno jet i just bought a 55 pilot and 158 main keh. from a local bike shop for less than 10 drilled the slide for nothing, shimmed the needle with a washer for nothing, removed the smog crap for free and made block off plates in about 5 min. drilled the snorkle off in no time, plugged the approp. hoses with roofing screws that have a rubber washer. pullled the core out of the pipe and man what a difference. i could'nt figure a cheap way out for the filter i forked out the fitty for a k and n. Oh and i removed the rear fender support and tilted the fender up then drilled holed in it so that the seat bolts go through it it looks awsome after throwing away that nasty taillight assy and putting on a modified 20 dol. mair old xr style taillight for d.kirk. It look as good and any mx fender and drop led setup

because you can shim the needle till your blue in the face and it wont correct the lean straight diameter of the stock needle.

then why does the dyno jet have circlips to raise the needle? strait diameter ??? its tapered. u work for dyno or baja or something?

because the clip postion changes the fueling when the needle is on the taper.initially at small throttle openings the needle is down.that portion fo the needle is straight.the stock needle straight diameter is too big/lean.

i dont work for dynojet or baja designs.there are many dynojet kits i wont use.

i also make no money from any jetting product being sold.

      Hi fellow thumpers,
      firstly if there is other threads on this topic I apologize.
       
      i have a 2009 KTM 450 exc. I live at 5500 feet. I have a keihin carb. I currently have it set up with 
      green needle (jd kit) @ 4th from the top
      main #175 
      pilot #42
       in setting it up for some desert riding I plan on doing next month (LAB2V). Right  now I’m getting a bog if I rack the throttle a few times. I’m reading this is semi normal as the accelerator pump has a hard time refilling.
      i have put a new diaphragm, spring, lean jet is at #40 and air fuel acre 1 and 1/8 out.
       
      im planning on going back to 172 main, red needle 5th from the top and #45 pilot.
      i normally ride the trails around lake arrowhead and Big bear in California. The trails are single track from 5000-10000 feet.
       
      Anyone see any issues with either set up?
      how about the big if I get on it a few time ( not really noticeable when riding)
      sorry for the questions. This is my first carb I’ve ever worked on. 
       
      Thanks in advance

      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.
