Recommended Posts

I am gonna re jet my carb and adjust the needle. I would like some pics or schematics. The bike is a 250xcf-w.

Also, if you'll buy the KTM Repair Manual from your dealer or one of the websites, it has a very good section on the carb. MotoPower CD's (you can buy it on Thumpertalk's store website) shows how to tune and jet the carb as well.

Good luck.

The "W" has a needle that is way too lean at & around 1/4 throttle. I think the jets are fine!

The needle has 5 letters on it, ignore 1 & 2, 3rd letter is the taper angle, you have and want an "E"

4th letter is distance from clip to taper, you would like to stay close to the letter you have.

5th letter is the 1/4 throttle area and that is where the "W" is screwed up! It has I beleive a "T", each letter toward z is leaner and a toward a is richer.

You need a "P" or as close to P as you can find! T is not an option and raising the needle does not fix it
