JD jet kit......

Recommended Posts

I finally bought a JD jet kit for my 2003 CR125. I was pretty close using various honda jet needles. I installed red needle per instructions and the bike made a terrible noise and would just randomly cut out and die. It was VERY lean now. Question is is the blue needle really much of a difference as far as being richer? The two needles look the same diameter almost. The 6dgy22-71 that seems to be working well is WAY thinner. Please help! Or I just may have a JD jet kit up for sale.

Terrible noise? on startup or while running? Randomly cuts out and dies, when while riding or on the stand?

You could always email or call James himself and let him work with you his customer service is top notch

The Blue needle is richer in the lower throttle openings 0-1/4 throttle if its goes like the previous kits i've had

If you compare each side by side, notice where the clip positions are for each. The two needles are only 1/2 clips different.

From where you're at, I'd go one clip richer on your red needle and see if that helps.

The Blue needle is richer. I would try that and if it is still too lean, talk to James at JD. Just curious though (don't take this wrong), but why did you buy a JD Jet kit if you were already jetted good?

I bought the kit just to see if I can make it just that much better. Blue needle seems to work well. Gonna take time to tell whether or not I like the JD kit better though.

I had to use the the blue needle on my Cr250 as the red needle was to lean. If I remeber right the blue needle is richer between 0-1/4 throttle & 1/2 richer in each clip position. It ran better with the blue needle but you'll have to adjust the clip pos. for you temps & elevation, cond etc.. I'd start in the middle & go from there.

The needle tapers are the same, but the Blue one is 1/2 clip richer as previously stated. You need to make sure you adjust the pilot and main to what JD recommends as well due to the different needle diameters (which fixes the mid throttle opening metering). Its a package change. You cant change just one part and expect the bes results. (not sure if you changed the main and pilot)

      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
