ok here is the deal. i cant figure out if what my bike is doing is a lean surge or mild detonation? i am also not sure if this is a fuel issue or jetting. here is my setup-- 2008 yz250 with eric gorr 295 kit head cut for pump gas klotz super techni plate 32:1 / 93 pump gas #8 slide / jd red needle third clip 172 main 50 pilot 3/4 turns out on air screw timing .007 (stock) 0-2500 ft 2 weeks ago we were in the mountains and the bike ran very well- 2500 ft low humidity. only surged a couple time when it got really hot in the tight stuff but not bad. rode the bike this weekend backhome - sea level 90+ degrees high humidity. i have a surge right @ 1/8 throttle. it gets worse as the bike gets hotter. seems like a lean condition but why would that get worse when its hotter with higher humidity? i have checked for air leaks and it is good to go. crank seals are also good to go. i tried going up one on the pilot and it did not cure it. it just felt rich right off idle but still had the surge. i spoke with eric gorr and he said that even though the head was cut for pump gas it may be needing a little bump in octane. he suggested klotz octane booster! honestly for the cost of that i may as well run 50/50 mix of 110/93. any thoughts?? i also tried dropping the needle one more clip and it did not cure it. because it gets worse with heat i want to think it is detonation/pre ignition. oh and my plug looks perfect- coffee brown. any help is much apprieciated....tired of chasing my tail on this.
