Carb Question Throttle Valve Assembly
Looking to get my second dual sport. Ive been riding for 3 years on my DR200. I mostly prefer single track and technical riding.
I recently test rode the DRZ on dirt. I liked the extra grunt, but found it too tall for my legs and too top heavy for my riding style.
Anyway, I like what I've read about the KLX250's suspension and aftermarket mods. I see "easy install" kits and directions all over, but no information as to how the 2018 kid's EFI will change installing these kits.
Will it require an aftermarket EFI? Or possibly even a carb swap kit?

I’m new here!
Also only 20 years old haha! - a couple years back I acquired my grandads old DR400s.... (long story, he bought it brand new in 1980, sold it to his cousin in 81, it then got put in storage from 81 - 2016) basically I spent a good 6 months fully restoring this beautiful bike! (Favourite bike I have ever worked on) - stupidly low miles and two registered keepers from new!!.
The downside to it being stored is there was fuel left in the tank and carb! - I’ve had the carb to bits multiple times, soaked in many types of cleaner... I still am having issues getting the thing to start.
basically I was just wondering if anyone had managed to find an Aftermarket carb that is a straight swap for this bike that won’t ruin the bank!!
I blew up my '14 drz S a few weeks ago. Started, and ran cold up to to redline one the highway. I know it was dumb. But i have since installed a big bore kit and stroker crank. I also had the head serviced with new SS valves and had it ported and polished at Fastheads.
I was running the 3x3 mod, and a JD jet kit. Everything else stock.
Wondering if the bike will run well with stock carb and pipe, and what jetting to use.
If it will run like crap, what carb and pipe do I want to run? (I want a quiet pipe)
Normal operation is at 600 ft and cool, but do travel to colorado often.
