Mechanically challeged seeking sound advice

Recommended Posts

I've been reading a lot of postings concerning installing JD jetting kit, Boysen QuickShot accelarator pump cover, and opening up the air box to eliminate the bog and hesitation off the idle and to increase the low to mid range power. I just bought a 06 CRF250X, and I'm experiencing the same problems.

Someone please address the following questions:

a) Since I'm planning on opening up the air box and installing the JD jetting kit, do I still really need the Boysen (or other aftermarket brands) QuickShot accelarator pump cover? Would it be redundant?

:ride: In addition to performing the above mods, I'm also planning on getting the DR. D full exhaust system down the road, but I've only seen ads for 2006 CRF250R, not for the X model. Since I have read several postings from people who own CRF250X and were very happy with the DR. D, I'm assuming the pipe will fit both the R and the X models. Am I correct?

c) Once the DR. D pipe has been installed, do I need to reset the jetting?

d) Any good advice on the settings??? pilot, main, needle setting, etc???

I'm riding in sea level to 3,000 altitudes.

Many thanks in advance for your help. Really sorry for such elementary questions, but I'm new to this. :thumbsup:

My opinion is if I had to do it again on what I know now I do the following:

1. Do the CCC mods including Air box, R CAM, Jetting (Leak jet), R header, as it says in the Wrench article. I run with the open baffle as recommended but some feel it is a little loud and if that is the case I would drill the baffle as Rick describes here http://rickramsey.net/CRF250X.htm.

2. If you have the bog problem IMO I would not spend the money on QuickShot $90 and/or JD Jetting $70, JD leak jet $25. I would send it out to TOKYO MOD http://www.tokyomods.com/crf250.htm and get the carb mod for $190. This will save you time and about the same amount of money as if you would have bought the gadgets and IMO you would be pleased with the mod.

3. Next if you are in search for more power IMO I would go with the Thumper 270 kit from thumper racing http://www.thumper-racing.net/. Rick Ramsey has more details on his site http://rickramsey.net/CRF250X.htm.

I hope this helps out I have had my CRF250X and been riding/racing it for over a year now and looking back I wished I would of done the above thinks in the order above and I would of saved a ton of money and time IMO.

I agree with Agent Smith, and also while you have the carb out make sure you install a Zip-Ty adjustable fuel screw or its equivalent.

I haven't experienced the Tokyo mod myself but I can tell you my bike with the JD kit rips.

If you are mechanical enough to get the carb of to send it away for the Tokyo mod than you are mechanical enough to do the JD kit.

ccollins is right. If you havent done the mods then how can you compare them? I am on my 3rd CRF in 3 years and the only mod worth the money is the P38 lightening or Tokyo Mods. Everything else (besides suspension) is up to the rider.

I'll consider all options.

I really envy those of you who are mechanically inclined...

Thanks a bunch, guys!

Great Forum BTW!
