1998 CR250 Needle Position

Hello TTers!

My bro has a 19988 CR250 that drinks gas maybe a little more than normal, it runs amazing but does spooge a bit out the pipe. Do those Keihin carbs allow you to move the needle up/down to maybe lean it out just a hair? Thanks in advance!

Yes, the clip can be moved up on the needle to lean things out a bit. But it only works on the bike in its midrange. If you're friend is on the gas a lot, he'll want to check out whether his main jet is correct. Do a search on this site for jetting advice--you'll find what you're looking for.

Thank you for the info plynn41, I'll pass it on!
