YZ250 woods riding

Recommended Posts

My brother has a YZ250 that if he rides it in the woods or on my tight 4stroke practice track will almost always foul a plug after about 10 - 45 mins sometimes longer or shorter. If you are able to ride the bike way fast all the time its fine. My question is how would we go about making this thing better for tight slow woods riding and still be able to do some fast riding as well?

The short answer is to jet it correctly, I ride my 250 100% woods only, and have never fouled a plug. My jetting isn't perfect, but its close and I'm striving to get it better.

I am between 400-600 ft above sea level and I run 168 main and 48 pilot air screw 1 1/4 turn to 1 3/4 turn and dont have any problem with fouling plugs.Give it a try Make sure you read your plug after a quick ride and check color:thumbsup:

when I ride on small tracks or woods I put a NGK BR7ES plug in. this thing should be about 3$ and almost no work. I would try it first :applause:

Thats what he has been running

thanks

he run a "7" spark plug with a jetting that seemed ok? I hope for him he is cleaning the air filter regularly (a dirty filter causes a richer mixture) so that sounds like a real problem :applause:

I'd try running your fuel 50:1, use 93 octane (premium) and Bel Ray H1R. Never fouled a plug that way. Just adjust screw to run right not to rich, not to lean.
