i-cat on 2000 cr250

Recommended Posts

I bought a i cat device back in 2005 for a 05 cr i had then, it goes between the coil and spark plug in the plug wire. I came across it in my leftover parts and put it on last week. The bike had not been started in about 2 weeks, it always start in 1-3 kicks most thime 2 kicks. after i put it on it started 1 kick. went riding Today first thing this morning first kick it started and all day first kick everytime. it had alittle more throttle response right off the bottom and more mid range but mid through topend is where it impressed me. i had a 2001 once and didn't fill like the 2000 cr had as much top end but now this thing totes the front tire 1st through 3rd seems like forever. I think now they call it a i-boost. just though i would share that.

I've seen a few reviews on these that said no performance change

what exactly are they, a capacitor? I cant see how they would do anything helpful to the spark, I can see them retarding spark though, if it's a capacitor

nevermind, it's just a diode, 5 $ part

yes i know that why it was in my old parts box i didn't think too much of it ether on my 2005 highly mod cr250, but i just put nit on to see what it would do the bike ran good before but just was not impressive. i have to admit yesterday the bike was very impressive. maybe it works better on older bikes where the ignition is not as strong as today's. I think it exstends the spark duration if that is what it does then jetting has to play a part also as a 2 stroke used sound waves in the exhaust to reflect unburned gases back into the cylinder. maybe it needs to be alittle on the rich side. i don't know but i'm leaving it on. What's that adress for that sase?

      Kicking around the idea of selling my CR250. I have other bikes and never get a chance to ride this one.

      This is a well-maintained bike with tons of aftermarket parts. It's set up primarily for woods/single-track riding, but will still do just fine on an MX track.

      -Fresh Pro-X top end(<1 hour)
      -FMF Gnarly pipe & FMF Shorty silencer(<1 hour on fresh packing)
      -PWK Air-Striker Carburetor(bought new from JD Jetting last year)
      -Steahy 10oz. Flywheel Weight
      -Boyesen Rad Valve with Carbon-fiber reeds
      -TwinAir air filter

      -Excel Pro-Series Wheels(19"/21")
      -Brand-new Shinko tires(546 Front, 505 Cheater Rear not mounted yet) w/ Heavy-duty tubes
      -Works Connection Radiator Guards
      -Skid Plate
      -FMF Factory 909 Handlebars
      -Polished Frame
      -Sunstar 13/51 Steel Sprockets(new in box)

      I'm sure I'm missing a few odds and ends. Comes with a Bill of Sale only. (708)287-1998 - Dave

      I could not seem to find a similar thread so if one exists I apologize. I have an 02 cr250r with an 01 motor. I need to buy a new silencer with a spark arrestor because the current one does not have one. I am not sure if the owner before me used an 01 or 02 silencer because I have read the frame had significant changes from 01 to 02. Any thoughts? Thanks!

      I want to restore a 1996 cr80 that doesn’t have any graphics and absolutely love the 1994 cr125r tank shroud graphics, I can’t seem to find anything that fits the cr80 with those graphics. I found one last week but lost the page and couldn’t track it down again, do the cr125r graphics fit the cr80 tank shrouds? or does anyone know where someone could make them for cheap or know about any in Australia

      Hey guys,
      Could someone please explain the numbers on a needle jet for a mikuni carb?  I'm currently running a 38-73 needle but a lot of the people I talk to say I would be happier running a 38-70 needle.  I don't have a problem with going with what other recommend but I would like to understand the numbering for the needles first.  I understand the nozzle sizes, main jet and pilot jet it's just this damn needle thingamobob
      Thanks a lot
