250 ride report

Recommended Posts

I had an awesome ride on my 250 yesterday. Beautiful day, moist soil, new jetting, same old spooge. Check out the pictures:

Went down to a 170 main and gained some top end. The 45 pilot might have made the bike a little less wheelie-able. I pulled the plug and it was clean and dry (and rust-orange*).

* Motul 710 oil

If the 45 is fatter than before you may indeed be cutting your snap. Beings that you have a full FMF system it will run richer. More background on that here.

You might try the OEM silencer just to see on your richness/snap/spooge issue but I'm convinced it's Motul's fault too. BTW, the gallon that was is now 2/3 full. I thought I only used a tank or two but apparently used more than that.:ride: Going to USPS later today.... :p

Previously it was 175/N3EJ #2/48. Absolutely dead in the top end on the last ride, like the power valve didn't open.

My thoughts: for power, 2 strokes like to be a little fat on the pilot and needle, comparatively lean on the main jet.
