cr250 powerband

Recommended Posts

HI is there a way to smooth out the powerband? I have changed the exshaust and reed valves ,spaced out the carb from the cylinder and use a fly wheel weight is there anything else that I could do to make it more progresive

Power valve... but I don't know much about the CR. I believe you can adjust it, though I don't know how. Someone here should know.

I run a 9oz FWW, an FMF gnarly, 38mm PWK Air Stryker from a 2002 KTM 200 EXC (7.0 slide, 40 pilot, 168 main, and JD red needle), and Boysen rad valve on my 2002 and have 4-stroke style power with no hit. If I run a stock 2003 pipe on it keeping everything else the same, I get the typical 2-stroke hit, which is not fun in slick conditions.

Hope this helps!

I think (some correct me if I'm wrong) that there's a company called G3, they make a throttle with different cams in it to allow for a more easily modulated carb/slide control?

Lowering the compression on the motor will get you the results your looking for. I had the oportunity to ride an 07 CR250 a couple of years ago that was raced at GNCC offroad events. That was the smoothest 2t powerband I've ridden it felt like my 450 smooth & torquey with no hit in the band. I talked to the mechanic afterwards that set the bike up & he mentioned that he'd put an oem lower comp. cyl head offerd by Honda.

      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.

      Engine:
      -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

      Misc:
      -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

      Hello,
      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
