what causes deceleration pop

since i bought the bike used its had a bad deceleration pop. Runs fine besides trying to go from no throttle to full then it'll bog. Could it be jetting? Maybe the pipe needs to be repacked. I live in nevada and right now the weather is around 100 degrees and the altitude is 2014 feet. Right now what i have in the carb is the stock jets. Is it easy getting in the carb and changing the jets? looked at manual and seemed kind of tricky compared to the 2 stroke. also if it does need to be repacked how do i do it? 09 crf250r everything stock

Decel pop is most commonly caused by a lean condition in the pilot circuit.

An incorrectly adjusted fuel screw, a missing o-ring or washer on the fuel screw, a partially clogged pilot jet, a clogged passageway above the pilot jet, or a poor sealing crush gasket at the header can all be causes of decel pop.

but not the silencer cans? Is it hard to get into the crf's carb? Looked at the manual and the carb doesnt look like the carb on the 2 stroke, its this long thing. also could my bike blow up if i keep riding it like this.

An exhaust leak will also cause a decel pop. Doubtful that it's going to blow, but a lean condition can cause a major malfunction and possibly destroy some vital parts.

You can access the jets through the bottom of the carb. It is not easy.

The best way is to pull the subframe, pull the shock and remove the carb from the bike. That way you can completely disassemble the carb and thoroughly clean and inspect all the components and passageways.

Its a lean pilot circuit, and/ or i bet you a gentlemans bet that you also need a new pipe manifold crush washer (they are copper) and it fits into the cylinder where the pipe comes out of the exhaust pipe. You can only use them ONCE!!

Blown out packing also contributes to popping.

Don't rule out tight exhaust valves or poor valveseats, unless they have been checked/serviced recently. But it usually is a lean condition or grossly rich condition.

both have been checked look good. what would you guys recommend for jetting then

Now ive found a problem, i dont know from where but dirt has been gettin through the air box. I opened it up because i was going to change it before i rode, took the airfilter off and saw inside some dirt

Dont know if any went down or not but still it was there. What should i do and whats the worst that can happen

Stock jets at that altitude and that temp is a little rich I would think. Thats probably why you have the bog when you open the throttle quick. There a a few threads here with jetting that will get you close. I will advise that you dont change the leak jet until you change the pilot and main jet. Then if you still have a small bog a different leak jet may be needed.

The seal between the air box and the air boot is known to be bad. Take it apart and reseal it. A lot of people have had the same thing happen. Its the first thing I did when I got my 09.

anything going to happen though? because im sure its been sucking dirt for a while

Sucking dirt does the intake valves no favors. If they are stock, and you've been sucking dirt, get ready for valve issues. The dirt specks get embedded in the seats and destroy the coating on the OEM valves. This will lead to premature failure.

I dont think its sucked a lot of dirt though. So maybe nothing will happen.... i hope. so back to the original question, I dont think its jetting, I would think its the exhaust because it even has burn marks from where its leaking. could i weld it so that it'll stop or do i need to buy a new exhaust. Really dont have the money to buy a new exhaust though since the ones ive seen on ebay stock are like 224

If the leak is out at the can, it's not the culprit. The decel pop would only be from air entering the system at the head/ header seal.

When you rap the throttle, does the engine return to a smooth idle rapidly or does it take some time to settle down?

its a smooth idle rapidly

Try opening the fuel screw 1/4 turn. See if that corrects the issue.

      Jeremy Martin Leads the Charge for Wiseco Riders at Daytona Supercross
      Christian Craig Turns in Career Best in 450 Competition
      MENTOR, Ohio (March 13, 2018) – Jeremy Martin showed the way for Wiseco-sponsored riders in Saturday night’s Monster Energy Daytona Supercross presented by Honda. In a season marred by bad luck and misfortune, Martin put together a near flawless ride to earn his first Eastern Regional 250SX Class podium finish of the season.
      Martin qualified eighth for the division’s annual visit to the World Center of Racing, finished fourth in his heat race, and came home second in the 250SX main event, missing his first win of the year by less than a second.

      “It’s Daytona, a real man’s track.” said Martin who sits fourth in points. “It was the toughest race of the year as far as fitness. I had to slow down a little bit, halfway through the main. I was getting close to (race winner) Jordon (Smith) and I was starting to think about where I could make a move on him, then I made some mistakes and he got away from me. Couldn’t quite get close again, but it’s good. We’re on the podium and in contention for wins again. That’s something I haven’t been able to say in supercross in a while. We want to get wins and now we know it’s coming.”
      Martin’s podium was a bright spot, but the rest of the event was rough for the GEICO Honda/Factory Connection squad. RJ Hampshire crashed hard in his heat race and had to be transported to a local hospital. He injured his back and ribs, but shoulder pain left him with the most concern.
      “I felt good on the bike all day,” said Hampshire via his Instagram account. “Had some pretty good speed and my foot just slid off hitting my shifter in those rollers during that heat race. After seeing the pictures from the crash I’m very thankful I didn’t take a shot to my head. I have some fractures in my T3/T4 in my back and ribs. Also have some damage to my lungs which is why I’ll be spending a couple nights in the hospital. I’ll be getting some more checkups this week on the shoulder also.”
      Cameron McAdoo, the third member of the team, was unable to compete at Daytona after being sidelined with a hand injury two races ago in Atlanta.
      Across the paddock, in the premier 450SX Class, Christian Craig got the call to fill in for Team Honda HRC. With the team’s regular riders Ken Roczen and Cole Seely out with injuries, it was up to Craig to carry the load for the factory team, and the upstart rider didn’t disappoint.
      The San Diego native was solid in both qualifying sessions, won his heat race and snagged the holeshot in the division’s main event. After relinquishing the lead to eventual winner Justin Brayton, Craig continued to show he was up for the challenge. The 26-year-old rider raced for second and third for most of the 20-minute-plus-one-lap feature before losing one more spot in the late goings to bring his No. 32 Honda CRF450R home fourth in the final rundown.

      “I had a great week testing with the team,” commented Craig. “They came down to Florida right after Atlanta and I feel like we really improved. Just getting more time on the bike and getting more comfortable was huge. I started off race day feeling really good. My qualifying position didn’t really show it, but overall I was happy with my riding. It’s all about having fun out there, and man, that’s what I did tonight. I was up front in the heat race, fell to third, but then the two guys in front took each other out so I ended up winning. You can call it luck or whatever, but I just put myself in a good position to capitalize on people’s mistakes."
      “I had a good gate pick and some confidence going into the main. I grabbed the holeshot and led for almost the first lap, but [Justin] Brayton got by me pretty quick. I stayed second for quite a while. I just rode my hardest and did my best. Unfortunately, a couple guys got by me so I ended up fourth. The track was so tough. This is only my second time racing Daytona and last year didn’t go well, so I really wanted to get some revenge this year. It’s better than the week before, but man, I was so close to a podium. I just need to keep putting myself in good positions and work on getting better each weekend.”
      Monster Energy AMA Supercross rolls on this weekend when the series visits the “Gateway to the West” for its annual race at the Dome at America’s Center in St. Louis. The 11th of 17 races on the 2018 supercross calendar will be televised live on FS1 Saturday, March 17, beginning at 8 p.m. Eastern Daylight Time, 5 p.m. Pacific.

      Hi all,
      My main question is how can I make my 250r more reliable. I have owned it for 2 years and it was spent about 1 year in the shed probably needing new valves and piston rings (i have been putting it off) Will steel valves last longer and work well in the engine? Also, what are your thoughts of me selling it and buying something newer? is it worth it?

      I checked the valve clearance on my 06 crf250r and both exhaust valves is at .007 and the intake is (left side) .005 and (right side) .000??? idk my feeler gague only went down to .002 and it would not slide in.
      Is that ok for the exhaust? Do I need to just shim the right side on the intake? or does both need shimming?
