looking for an answer

Recommended Posts

I have an 05 crf 250x and I just hate the fact it sounds like an air compressor lol So my question is what can I do to give it a more "throaty" sound I've been looking for an r exhaust but no luck so far. I need something that will still leave it with a spark arrestor. Any help would be greatly appreciated.

04R or 05R stock exhaust can with a Promotobillet insert (with spark arrestor). It will take a little work replace the insert but it looks good, inexpensive and well worth it, IMHO. Try searching it.

I have the X exhaust though. On the website it doesn't give one listed for an X.

I'm not sure what you mean....the 2004 or 2005 250R exhaust will fit on your bike. I just read your first post and it looks like you are looking for one. That's definitely a good way to go. They are out there...sometimes people just have them in their garage and would sell them if if offered. Sometimes just posting about one turns one up. Good luck finding one.

Go to rick ramsey's site. Drill out the stock X exhaust diffuser. Keeps the spark arrestor, keeps it quiet enough to keep the rangers and neighbors happy, but opens it up and gives it a better sound.

Plus its FREE!!!

I'm in the same boat... looking for an aftermarket exhaust to help the bike breathe better and seen a lot of people suggest getting an 250R exhaust.

I have an '04 250X... when people suggest putting a 250R exhaust on, I assume they mean the '04 250R Single exhaust... not the newer style dual can setup? Will a 250R header and mid pipe also fit? Won't the 250R exhaust open up the top end some but reduce performance of the bottom end? I ride trails and mostly bottom to mid end of the throttle.

anyone know about this?

if your willing to go aftermarket i would go with the dr.d full system. it is super light, sounds phenominal, and adds makes the power band so much better! i dont have to spark arrester in mine and i got used w/o the spark arrester so i'm not sure if it comes with one new? but i've heard of many people getting the r exhaust and being very happy.

the R exhaust takes away a bit of your bottom end but ads to the midrange and top end,well actually thats only if you use the R head pipe as its a bit bigger in diameter

Yes, both the 2004 and 2005 250R exhaust fits on all models of 250X. Not the newer dual can setup. Yes, the 2004 and 2005 250R header will fit the 250X too but you will lose some low end grunt. If you want a free flowing exhaust but keep the low end, then keep the 250X header and add the 250R can.

I was going to put the R exhaust on it but it has no S/A so I can't.

That's why we add the Promotobillet endcap to the 250R exhaust can...it has the sparky.

But its also 130 bucks I mean for that price plus the can why don't I just buy a new pro-circuit or FMF can with a sparky.

Well, since I bought my R header and can for $70 shipped and the promotobillet for $115 and then sold my R header for $20....that comes out to $165 total. I haven't seen many aftermarket exhausts remotely close to that price. It wasn't worth it to me to spend $300-$500 for an aftermarket can that does the exact same thing as the R can does.

Your thinking like I am. Out of curiosity where did you sell your header at? TT?

Yeah, in the TT classifieds but that was about 2 years ago.

      So I have never actually posted on one if these forums. I usually just stalk them to get answers but I messed up and I might be out 800 bucks🙃
      I have a 2013 CRF250L that I recently bought and I wanted to get supermoto wheels for it. I got online and almost ordered a set of warp 9 wheels but then I saw an add on Craigslist. Long story short I purchased lightly used warp9 wheels from a 2012 CRF250X not realizing the axles are different sizes. The rims are the same size as what comes in the kit from warp 9 but the spacers and bearings are larger on the wheels that I got. Does anyone know if I can buy new bearing and spacer kits to go in these hubs to fit them on my bike or will I need to purchase new hubs entirely? 
      I work on a fishing boat and I'm off the coast of Oregon for a few weeks and wanted to order something so I can get these wheels on my bike when I get home.
      Thanks, 
      The guy who f***** up

      I was working on installing new needle for JD jet kit today. While trying to get a bit more rotation on the carb i broke a little plastic tee on the top of carb (left side). I think its some sort of vent? Not sure if the brass part is threaded into carb or not? At any rate it will have to be replaced. Wonder where i'd get this little item?
      Any ideas?
      Thanks joe

      Ever been bored or really ticked off by not being able to reach your fuel screw for trailside adjustments?  Well, I decided to do something about it, and not spend a bunch of money to boot!
      Parts liste included:
      Short length of brass tube. Short piece of old, broken speedometer inner cable. Nut from the rejects bin.   I welded the nut to the speedometer cable inner and soldered the other end to the fuel screw using the brass tube as a connector.  I didn't need or fab up a holder for the end, but I wouldn't be too hard. My DIY flexible fuel mixture screw works great and the price is right! I highly recommend this mod.

      Cheap, but effective DIY fuel mixture screw

      Hi everyone. I’m new here so I don’t really know what to do but let me explain what’s up, so I bought this 2008 CRF250X today and everything looked in tip top shape, but within a few minutes of riding the engine and radiator gets to hot to touch and then the bike dies at low RPM, then it is a hassle to get it started(i drained the battery trying) and once it fires it dies super easily again like by touching the trottle or just idling and I have to be super cautious on the throttle to grt it going. I don’t know if it is overheating or if there is another problem, if anyone could help me it would be very much appreciated.
