New Top End - High RPM Idel

Recommended Posts

I just put a new top end in my 02 CR250. Everything went smoothly, but now when I start the bike, the engine rev's pretty high (as if the throttle is a little more then cracked). I also had a few dents removed on the expansion chamber and re-packed the silencer, but did not make any major changes that would warrent changing the jetting (at least I don't think). I adjusted the idle control with no luck as well.

Any pieces of advice?

By chance is the slide or cable hanging up...what about the idle adjustment.

Check the carb if you know it's not an airleak.

found the problem. When I was disassmbling, a head stud broke off. I took the cyl in to a local shop and had them extract the broken bolt. It appears that they just drilled it out and re-tapped the hole to the same size. When I torqued the cyl head, everything seemed fine, but apparently when torquing or running, the threads failed. Going back to the local shop for an explanation.

I could have half-assed it myself.

Any thougts short of having a custom stud fabricated?
