93 XR250L Mikuni 32 or 34 mm carb

Hello I asked this question in the XR250 forum and someone suggested that I post it here.

I'm going to rebuild the engine on my 93 XR250L this winter and would like some help picking out the right size carb. I'm planing on installing a 77mm piston, with a mild porting of the head, swap the L cam for the R cam. with new valve springs. Already installed a 99 up XR250R header (ground the welds) with a FMF Q2 muffler and opened up the air box. Looking at the Mikuni flatslide carbs thinking the 32mm but not sure if I should bump it up to the 34mm. Bike is used 90% street 10% off-road. Any suggestions you can give me will be greatly appreciated. Thanks Jonny

Hey Johnny.

since no one else has chimed in i will say something. lots of people want a bigger carb. they think well i bored it over, i got a cam and ported and polished. but your stock carb will work with correct jets. ask redrider1314. he knows more about the stock.

i however went the same route you did. i have the 34mm flat slide with 1/4 turn race throttle. its a beast!! does stumble a bit in the low rpms. but it screams all the way to redline. i want to bring mine in to have it dyno to see if i am running lean or rich during any rpm range. but some people think that carb doesnt work well at all. they say get a pumper carb and it will be faster. i dunno. its really up to you. if yours is mainly street you may want to keep your stock and mod it out and jet right. i ride alot of the street with mine and its alright seems much faster than stock.

dont know if that helps but the one part i like best about having my 34mm is showing people the sticker that says "Not For Aircraft Use" hehehhahah i think that is just bada**.

Funny man. :excuseme:

I work on Boeing all day...

Technically, any part that doesn't have an FAA-PMA stamp or an 8130-2 certificate is "not for aircraft use." Even my blue painters tape has to have a sticker that says "Not For Aircraft Use." -BIG DAN:thumbsup:

id go 32mm.

      Hi Guys,
      So I recently bought a 1997 XR400. I've done some research into getting more power through some basic mods and rejetting the carbs. Though all of the ones I've found have been for post 98 XR400s so the stock carb set up is a lot different. Usually people are opening up the airbox, exhaust ect. ect. and Jetting their carbs up to 160/162 for mains around 60 ish (I think) for the pilot. However for the 97 model this is close to stock for the jets.
      So essentially what Im asking (Just to cut to the chase ) Has anyone got a 96/97 (maybe 98, not sure) XR400 and has done these similar mods, and what sort of jetting have to done as a result.
      Thanks in advanced, also its my first post so apologies if I havent done everything correctly.

      38MM Cast SmartCarb. Purchased a couple years ago for a yz250. Don't have the bike anymore, and it has been sitting around for about a year. Used, but in fine working condition. You can also purchase a different needle for different bikes, as well as rebuild kits from their website.
      Asking $250 shipped to continental United States. I can arrange other shipping options at the buyers expense.

      Hey guys I just bought a bike last night. So the seller said the bike will turn on but then die. We didn't try it because it was really late at night and it was raining (seat was wet). But he said if you bump start it, it will turn on and ride. So what do you think the problem is? I just want to make sure it runs... I probably won't be able to bump start it till Saturday (rain)... It's a four stroke, and I know absolutely nothing about them. Thanks.

      I know this topic has been discussed in the past, but I have not found any options available for the new 2018 bikes. I live and work for a new Beta Dealer (Auburn Extreme Powersports) in California, and we are having a difficult time mapping the RR-S bikes for full FMF exhausts. We have tried contacting Beta Support several times for this issue to no avail, and we typically are given the runaround when transferring to techs and secretaries. From what we can gather, the FMF flash is designed for the RR bikes, but not the street-legal counterparts. Every time we try to install the FMF map onto an RR-S errors occur, and the programmer screen goes virtually blank. We have heard through the grapevine that some are using the RR maps on the RR-S with success, but we have yet to try it, even on our own bikes for fear that it will permanently erase or damage the CDI. Any and all help or suggestions regarding this topic would surely be appreciated! Thanks, Ben.
