'11 tunning question

Recommended Posts

Has anyone retarded or de tuned their '11 KX250f for woods riding?

Have heard people doing one down from stock?

Wondering what it actually does?

Do you use overall power or is it just change throttle response so its not hitting so hard?

Are you better detunning or installing a throttle cam set up?

input please....

I can't imagine that being necessary. The bike has a ton of bottom end for a 250F. I might add one tooth to the rear sprocket for the really tight woods but that's about it. I will say that the addition of a DRD pipe to my bike has made the bottom and middle of the the powerband stronger at the cost of a little top end and that would be a good thing for the woods.

@ fred thanks...37 years old came off a KFX450, well i got a few suprises on the trail...eye opener, but all kept under control....

I practiced up a hill trying to work throttle control and by last try i think i was getting there. I stalled or putted out once, the others was trying to find a happy medium of throttle so i could control the bike and work the clutch, was finding myself down shitig at top due to a right turn over a root...

will try it a few more times and see what happens, thinking about going up a tooth or 2 in rear though this might help me too...just knowing i have that extra grunt..

      Hi, I have just bought a kx250f, 2013 with a freshly rebuilt 2016 motor in it, this is my first time on these forums, anyways, I have also bought a lowering link to drop it 4 inches on the arse, I was wondering if anyone knows how much I should drop the forks? 
      I havent put the lowering link on yet. 
      Thanks.

      Recently had issues with the original fcr carburator that was installed in my 2009 kx250f, tried jetting multiple time and different gas and the bike would only run with the choke ziptied out. Do I went ahead and purchased the lectron gen 2 4 stroke carburator kit, was kinda expensive and I was kind sceptical but after my first ride all I got to say is wow. The only adjustment I have done it set the idle, the bike runs amazing and feels as if there is more power than before. The kit came with a new throttle tube assembly and a g2 throttle tube with adjustable cams for throttle response. I highly recommend if you have a carburator on your four stroke and don't want to get a new dirtbike that is fuel injection then go the route of throwing out that junk fcr carburator and get a lectron gen 2 carburator for your old 4 stroke

      I own a 2012 Kx250F that I would like to make street legal if possible and I recently saw Rocky mountain I believe sells these battery packs that sit in the airbox for bikes without batteries that looks too good to be true and a headlight and turn signals like a conversion kit basically and I was curious as if anyone has had luck with those or if there junk it would be nice to make my bike street legal for short trips or just have lights for trail riding with friends that already do if possible any tips on converting it?
