1985 xr350

Recommended Posts

Ok so I just scored a low hours, low miles, 1985 xr 350. Im the second owner. Every layer I peel back is just awsome. This thing is in great shape! There is no damage. Well alittle, but its a 26 year old dirt bike. I just pulled the carb off to clean and inspect. I noted that it is currently jetted 50/150. The only aftermarket part on the bike is a super trapp. I live at sea level. Ive never owned a 4 stroke before so, does this sound like its a good jet setting? I havent yet taken the super trapp apart to count discs. This thing doesnt rattle or leak Im so happy. I cant wait to take it out for our first flogging. :smashpc:

In the distant past, I owned 2 '85 XR350s. Altitude here varies from around 500-1000 feet, 152/52 worked well for me, fuel screw 2 - 2 1/2 turns out from seated.

That is in the ballpark jetting if memory serves. I think I'm 50/152 with Uni filter/headers/XR's Only exhaust (supertrapp)

I just got sent the owners manual by a very kind gentleman on here. Have the original shop manual and a copy of 1985 Dirt RIder magazine comparison test with a KTM (didn't know they were around then!) and Husky (I think). Very cool. :smashpc:
