Tale of two "X's": Need to loose the bog

Recommended Posts

I have a 06CRF250X, and so does my friend. We both bought brand new on the same day Nov 07. I'm a gear head, adreline junky, partialy handicaped (vet), so the 250X is a dream come true. I broke it in a couple of rides, bought the JD jet kit, made the air box mods + difuser and am STOKED + totally happy. Here's the question: My friends bike is still TOTALLY stock, and his skills are more toward a novice or entry-level rider. He rode my bike and now HATES his stock bike due to that horrible "bog" on the stock bike just off idle. He does NOT want to make all the mods, just yet. Question: Need to loose the bog--nasty ugly bog when in gear, just above idle. Will the AP mod remove the bog, simply by itself? Question # 2:And while I'm in there doing carb surgery, should I bump up the main jet or move the clip? We ride mostly 2500-4500 feet. My stocker had a 130 main, clip in the #2 position. WIthout modding his air box or exhaust, is there a suggested jet better than the 130? Thanks!

I just got a JD kit for myself, I would just get the kit and if I remember it tells you what jets to use without the mods, The Bog was driving me nuts too but it should be gone by spring for me,

Didn't think to check the JD kit, but if it does give directions for jetting without mods, it will be HIGHLY recomended for my buddy.

Did the top of air box,drilled out baffle,fuel screw,

JD jet, no ap mod. No Bog. Do the mods. Very simple.

I would run around 145 main 42 pilot and 55 leak jet with everything else stock at your altitude. It will be greatly improved from stock. If you were closer to sea level and with the ccc mods I would go up quite a bit on the main from there but in stock form that should be good.

You don't HAVE to buy a kit or cut up the airbox to get it running right. Do the O ring mod and put a 42 pilot in it, adjust the mix screw, your bog will disappear. If it feels a little flat in the middle raise the needle or replace it with a 49 state on clip 4 or a 04 yz450f needle. If you want to do all the box, cam and pipe mods, then you might want to do a little more with the jetting. JMHO

      So I have never actually posted on one if these forums. I usually just stalk them to get answers but I messed up and I might be out 800 bucks🙃
      I have a 2013 CRF250L that I recently bought and I wanted to get supermoto wheels for it. I got online and almost ordered a set of warp 9 wheels but then I saw an add on Craigslist. Long story short I purchased lightly used warp9 wheels from a 2012 CRF250X not realizing the axles are different sizes. The rims are the same size as what comes in the kit from warp 9 but the spacers and bearings are larger on the wheels that I got. Does anyone know if I can buy new bearing and spacer kits to go in these hubs to fit them on my bike or will I need to purchase new hubs entirely? 
      I work on a fishing boat and I'm off the coast of Oregon for a few weeks and wanted to order something so I can get these wheels on my bike when I get home.
      Thanks, 
      The guy who f***** up

      I have a new 16 crf250x.  Would like gear it up a bit for two track, orv trails.  How much can i drop the rear sprocket size without shortening the chain.
      Thanks men!

      I was working on installing new needle for JD jet kit today. While trying to get a bit more rotation on the carb i broke a little plastic tee on the top of carb (left side). I think its some sort of vent? Not sure if the brass part is threaded into carb or not? At any rate it will have to be replaced. Wonder where i'd get this little item?
      Any ideas?
      Thanks joe

      Ever been bored or really ticked off by not being able to reach your fuel screw for trailside adjustments?  Well, I decided to do something about it, and not spend a bunch of money to boot!
      Parts liste included:
      Short length of brass tube. Short piece of old, broken speedometer inner cable. Nut from the rejects bin.   I welded the nut to the speedometer cable inner and soldered the other end to the fuel screw using the brass tube as a connector.  I didn't need or fab up a holder for the end, but I wouldn't be too hard. My DIY flexible fuel mixture screw works great and the price is right! I highly recommend this mod.

      Cheap, but effective DIY fuel mixture screw

      Hi everyone. I’m new here so I don’t really know what to do but let me explain what’s up, so I bought this 2008 CRF250X today and everything looked in tip top shape, but within a few minutes of riding the engine and radiator gets to hot to touch and then the bike dies at low RPM, then it is a hassle to get it started(i drained the battery trying) and once it fires it dies super easily again like by touching the trottle or just idling and I have to be super cautious on the throttle to grt it going. I don’t know if it is overheating or if there is another problem, if anyone could help me it would be very much appreciated.
