New to me 1996 cr250r...

Recommended Posts

So, we picked up a near mint cr250r yesterday, starts 1 kick with choke, but wont idle without the choke on. I changed alll the fluids, cleaned the carb very well. The jetting is just off in general for the fmf system I believe(fatty, T core 2).

any benchmark setting i should start with? Its about 45 degrees by the way, mixed up some fresh 32:1,and cleaned the air filter.

you need a bigger pilot jet, the old pj carbs wont idle unless they have the right pj in. That is a damn nice bike though especially if its original and unrestored

Got it to idle after a bit of screwing with air screw and idle.... plug still pretty black and oily.... I would say it needs a smaller pilot jet...
