Carbs 87/88

Hi,I have 87 xr250r has push/pull throttle i also have as a part's bike 1988 xr250r but it as single throttle cable and the carbs are diffrent is one better then the other?:thumbsup:

They have the same carbs. Sounds like one was replaced at some point. Whether its better or not depends on what it is.

Ditto what XR250rdr said. Both bikes should have the push-pull carb. Are there any numbers, etc... on the 88 carb?


If running right,both are strong,the deal is that the single carb is less complicated to muck with.

Thumper Racing sells a CR single cable throttle for the XR - it sounds like it has one of those on it. I think it gives a quicker turn than the stock throttle. It uses a special throttle cable sold by Thumper Racing.


I willhave to look for a carb # on the 88 and it's throttle is a good.Better than the push/pull onei have now

      Guy's,  I have an 1997 Honda XR400R and I need to do the front forks.  I'm a big guy 6'4" 375lbs.  So far I haven't been able to find a setup for a big guy. Any suggestions besides losing a lot of weight. :-)

      Went riding on Christmas Eve  everything was working fine went through some mud and slipped dropped my bike tried to kick start it and the kick start went limp pushed it back up got compression again  kicked it over a bunch of times started to run again  rode it for the rest of the ride with no problems then on the way back on the road I gave it fill throttle  and it died hasn't started  since and now has little compression. Replaced the spark plug and changed the oil and filter and adjusted the valves but still very little Compression and won't start.    
      Any ideas??  Would greatly appreciate

      I have a 1986 xr250r, I'm interested in converting the rear drum brake wheel assembly to a rear disc brake system. Has anyone done this, and can you tell me what application parts will get the job done. thanks
