Where Does This Go?

Recommended Posts

Ok so I feel like a dumb _ _ _. I knew where everything plugged in & where all my bolts went. That is until the dealer took 1 1/2wks to get my carb accelerator pump kit in instead of 3 or 4 days they told me.


This is a '05 Honda 250X

I had to tear down a lot of the bike to take the carb out for a good flushing. That went fine. But trying to re-connect the air box to the carb became the event of the day. I was working from the left side of the bike I completely forgot about this vacuum line on the Right side!

It comes off another vacuum line on the right side of the bike via a T connector, then as the picture shows it has a 2 elbows molded into the other end.

Can somebody tell me which side of the carb it connects to?

Is it a brass nimple or is it grey? This bike has zero room to work inside the frame! I am going to have to take it a part again to connect this I'm sure.

I am just trying to save a little frustration and time when I get a chance to work on it again tomorrow.

That is a vent line. It goes on top through the motor mount.

If sitting on the bike the plug in is on the right side and it's on the carb. Its on the bottom of the Carbs right side. Hard to explain.. Just look from your kickstarter and I think u will c it.

Ok I went back at it tonight while there were no replies with ideas yet. I wasn't crazy like I thought...

It turned out to be a breather line comings off the right side of the carb. The elbow is there to mount it or hang it from the rear motor mount up top.

She runs great again after my carb cleaning too!

Thanks for the replies guys. If I didn't go back at it tonight your answers would of solved my mystery.

      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.

      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.

      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.
