really bad bog after ap mod and quick shot

Recommended Posts

the bike:

2006 honda crf250r stock motor

I just recently installed a boysen quick shot and did the ap mod too. now the bike bogs really bad. i messed with the fuel screw and got it about 3.5 turns out and it seems to be getting a little better. but still bad.

i think i need a new leak jet i have the stock in wich i think is a 55 but not sure. what should i do?

thanks

Did you mess with the AP timing screw, or did you just wire it and leave it at the stock setting? Because if you messed with the timing screw, I would set it back to stock.

Try a size 40 or 45 leak jet.

But first. Adjust the fuel screw properly. Turn it in until the bike idles rough/lower. Then turn it out (richer, counterclockwise) until the bike idles higher and the crispest. Test by blipping the throttle.

On my 08 with a 45 leak jet and a 168 Main jet, I can blip the throttle from zero to full when the bike is warm and on the stand without any bog.

Get the R&D power pump with ALJ. Makes life much easier.

I killed the bog on our '06 with a 170 main/42 pilot/AP mod/R&D ALJ. Once its -fully- warmed up. No bog at all.

no i did not touch the ap timing screw. it is still at stock setting. i just remebered that i still have my cold weather main jet in wich is a 175. the temperature around here has gone up like 30* in the last week. i will put in a 170 and see if it helps.

thats basicly what i did and it took about 3.5 turns out of minor ajustments and blipping the throttle before it started to get better, wich tells me that i have some jetting problems.

What do you have in there for pilot jet, you should not have that screw out 3.5 turns you are at risk of it just backing out. It should never be more that 3 turns out with out you changing the pilot jet. That 06 wants a 42 to 45 pilot. Let us know what the pilot is and make sure it is clean.

I just put a 45 leak jet in my '04 and it made a huge difference. Click over to the Jetting forum and do a search on bogging, or post your carb specs. Eddie's advice will prove to be a solid foundation to set the proper jetting.

Did you leave the stock pilot, needle/position?

I just put an R&D ALJ set to a 45 and a 178 main in my 08 the rest is stock. It has a very bag bog coming off idle, but OK if it is above idle.

any thoughts

also what temperature is it where you are?

When you did the ap mod did you grind the rivet??? you cant get it to work with out binding unless you either grind the rivet or adjust the screw. If you did grind the rivet you need to go up on the leak jet. Try a 70.

i know this is an old post but i figured i would post what i did to fix it in case someone els down the road has the same problem. the problem turned out to be the stupid quick shot accelerator pump cover. took that off and installed the stock one again and it hasnt bogged once in two years! closest thing to fuel injection with out having fuel injection. lol

      I'm quite new to the moto scene and I've got a '09 CRF250R in need of what I believe is a top end rebuild. I've never gotten a rebuild before so I'm unfamiliar with the process and the steps to take in getting this done in a safe and efficient manner. I was wondering if anyone knew of any reputable shops in or near Vancouver, Canada (where I live) that could look at my bike and help me out with my situation. About 6 months ago I got an inspection on the bike and the shop told me that my cam bearings had "spun in their journals", requiring the installation of a new cam along with the rebuild. I haven't had anything done to the bike since the inspection so the motor is still in this state. She's running but I'm afraid that the motor is a ticking time bomb and would like a shop to take a look at it, let me know what needs to be replaced and get the rebuild done without me worrying about getting taken advantage of. I'm currently out of the country in school but have plans to get this done once I'm back. Any tips, recommendations, or help would be greatly appreciated!

      I’m wanting to powder coat my bike but it’s all new to me. I’ve got a powder coater picked out that I’ve heard is good for what I’m doing. I’m not 100% what kind of sand blaster I need and what kind of media. I have also heard you can’t cook in the oven after you’ve baked your parts is that true?

      Hi all, 
      I have a 2004 honda crf250r and it wont start hot at all. The motor was just rebuilt with a new cylinder and piston. The valves were just adjusted. It will start cold in 1 or 2 kicks with choke but as soon as it gets hot it wont start. If you bump start it the motor will just turn over without starting.  sometimes it will start. It runs great until you shut it off.  im thinking its either a fuel issue or an electrical issue. Any help would be greatly appreciated.

      Okay so the title is a little vague. 
      So it was having trouble idling and even starting when I first bought it about a month ago for $2k. 
      So I did a rough clean of carb, looked up on YouTube, Forums, Etc on how to do it. I only cleaned jets with carb cleaner and sprayed around the float bowl area and such, so not too extensive.
      Did that and I took it out to a park, It would start up right away mostly, few kicks sometimes, but when I got it started, I had to keep the choke on. Right when I was ready to go fast and go up to 3rd and 4th gear I'd switch it off and it would work fine and sound fine and everything, but when I slowed back down and coasted around 1st gear i'd pop it back out again because it sounded like it was going to do. I have some videos if people would like me to link to them.
       
      So after that I decided to take it apart and replace spark plug with OEM NGK R0409B-8, replace main jet from a old 170 to a new 170, replaced pilot jet from a old 40 to a new 42, and kept starter jet the same just made sure that wasn't clogged, ordered a new adjustable fuel screw and used that.
      and it was still having a little bit of problems! I just started up today and the day before today. It would run only with choke on, if i twisted throttle in neutral it sounded pretty good, no gun shot noises or anything, pretty smooth. 
      If I tried to take choke off it would die immediately. So I started it back up again, took around 6 kicks.. So again with choke on it sounded like it was starting to lose power and RPM's would drop so I'd twist throttle a few times and it would stay idling.. then after a small amount of time, start to sound like its about to die again... so I would rev it up again, and repeat..
       
      Fuel line isn't clogged, flows fine.
      I tried fuel screw everywhere between 1 and 2 turns out..
      I checked valve clearances, and I'm no expert but from the videos I watched the slipped underneath intake and exhaust with only minor force.
      So I'm lost.. 
      Maybe float bowl is messed up? Should I just do a COMPLETE carb rebuild from videos I've seen on youtube, like this one -> https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=3AXb9UprT30? Or what? 
       
      It's getting annoying taking it apart all the time, I jsut want it to start up quickly and run well!!
       
      Thank you!
