xr70 88cc kit help

Recommended Posts

i just put the 88cc big bore kit from tbparts.com on my xr 70. i didn't purchase the new head or cam, but i did get the 20mm carb.

the bike is much more powerful and faster, but there is some bogging. any suggestions on this?...i'm using the #85 jet, but i'm thinking i might need to go to the #82(stock, the carb comes with a #89 jet, but i bought the jet kit and downsized since i don't have the race head or cam).

i've noticed some people say you're better off w/ the stock 17mm carb and upping the jets on that. i wonder what the concensus is here at thumpertalk? i'm also using the stock pipe. i'm not trying to spend a pile of money on this bike, just pep it up some and have it ridable. any help with this is greatly appreciated!!

anyone know where u can buy jets online, larger than #64 for the Kehein pb12 a(or b?) carb?

also...is there anyway to remove the baffle on my 70?....other than cutting it out?..if so, how?

I used the stock carb on the same kit with stock pipe and came pretty close just fattening up the stock carb. I also got a few larger main jet's, but haven't tried them yet. The yard isn't that big, so I don't get to wind it out that much. But it's really pretty good, not even that much of a bog.

      Hello friends, 
      6 months ago I encouraged my six-year-old son to learn to ride our little 2007 CRF50F. He rode a little, but kept panicking and having small spills, and I sensed it was becoming a negative experience for him. He had lost all confidence. So I gave it a break, and now, 6 months later, he's back in the saddle. Yesterday at dinner I cheerfully encouraged him to try again. He cautiously agreed, and after about 1 minute of seat time he was off. I think 6 months of strength, mental ability, etc made the difference. Maybe more than anything his confidence boosted and now he's grinning ear to ear. Here's a little video from last night...

      Hello friends, 
      Seeing as how school was about to begin, I took my boys on a 16-mile exploration ride through the country. Along the way we found a neat levee, and the boys rode across it on their little Honda dirt bikes (CRF50F and CRF70F). These little bikes are awesome. Dirt bikes are a great way to spend time together, in my opinion.

      Hello friends, 
      I pushed my boys to ride a little harder on a recent ride. No one got hurt, and nothing broke. It's so fun to watch them improving in their skills...
