2004 crf250r Idle issue HELP!

Recommended Posts

i have spent a few days trying to get my bike ready for a ride this monday. I have had the issue with it not strating. It now starts, however when i start it the choke is on sounds ok, when i hit the throttle it has a slow back off scares me to ride it like this. The current carb setup is: needle 1st position from top 150 main and 40 pilot jets. valves are good. i did mess with bending the float tab down to get it right. temp here in boise is roughly about 60 but hitting 75-80 this week. any suggestions??

New pilot installed, good.

Fuel screw in serviceable condition (oring/washer/spring there, screw tip perfect) and opened?

Fuel in tank new?

When you say "...when i hit the throttle it has a slow back off.... " what does that mean? Does it mean the bike does not return to idle?

Throttle cables have play?

Slide moves freely?

well when i hit throttle it rves high but slow after my hand is off it the cable i believe have play im checking the fuel screw now. slide moves freely when bike is not running it will snap open closed very fast but when running its like it tends to hang. could this be sticking floats should i mess with them instead? ill repost in about 40 min after i re run it tell you all results.

so i switched the needle to the 3rd position and i did have the slider door flat side up and it was slow to come back down switched it and it pops open and closed very well now. about to run it see how it performs with my new jets in and needle position. i will make my final summer adjustments after dynojet emails back and post them here.

      Anyone else have 130 main and 38 pilot jets already in the carb I took the wifes ttr 230 carb apart to add the bigger jets and this bike from 05 that I bought new already had them in it? I was reading that they came with a 125 main and a 36 pilot.

      Hello all.  Need a helping hand here..  
      I bought an older TT225 and am not about to spend almost $600 on a new carburetor for it. So I'm hoping someone can help me out with an idea of what (other than original carburetor) style, type and brand I should go with..  I'm also having a bit of trouble finding info on this bike.  It's a 1986 Yamaha TT225.  
      Thank you in advanced

      Hey guys, I went on vacation all summer and let my bike sit (2002 CR250). When I got back I ripped it apart and cleaned carburetor and put it back together and it started fine and ran alright, but idled really high. I adjusted the idle screw and realized it was a ridiculous amount of turns out. I can't remember exactly how many but id say 6+ turns out. My killswitch was a POS and didn't work anymore so I replaced it with an oem replacement. My last ride I crashed the bike pretty bad and I was off the bike for 2 weeks. I can't get the bike to start ever since I got installed the new killswitch. I think I wired it right I just replaced one wire at a time and it looked pretty straight forward. I verified it by testing spark while holding it in I was getting no spark but with it in running position it would spark. 
      Anyway I am just looking for some base settings for the Mikuni TMX to get my bike running again, my carburetor has a 35 Pilot and 380 Main jet which appear to be stock. I am located in Edmonton, AB, Canada which is about 2500ft and usually ride between 10-25 celcius.
      Thanks for any replies.

      Hey guys... so I have a problem... I took the bike at Cal City, broke it in, and while I was doing so, the bike was bogging in first gear (Yes, first gear). Also it doesn't idle at all. I have to keep blipping it otherwise it'll stall. So I adjusted the screw circled in image 1. Well I was listening to the sound of the of the bike, yet the rpm's weren't increasing, and it was still stalling. So then, I unscrewed the screw in image 2, well I found out that it was fully twisted to the right. So then, I twisted it to the left, still nothing; it was still stalling... where's the idle screw? I am sure that the screw in image 1 is for the air/fuel mixture screw, and the screw in image 2 is the idle screw, just broken? I don't know, any and every help would be appreciated.

      So Ive decided its time to pull apart my favorite machine and freshen it up, and I'm looking to make some improvements in the process. I already have a 3x3 mod and a JD jet kit done and it seemed to have changed the world. The stock bike just plain sucked and now its a lot better. I never expect 450 race bike power here but I know there is a little more and I'm wondering if the juice is worth the squeeze. I already plan to add a header and exhaust, an FCR39 carb and stage 1 hotcams. After some research it really seems like those places are where the gains actually come from, so would it be worth it to throw a 434 big bore kit at this bike or just stick with what I already mentioned and a new stock bore top end??? Also my rides are often solo and pretty isolated,how much of a reliability headache can I expect with these mods?
