    96 rm250 starting problem

    So I have a completely rebuilt motor with power reeds and new gold series pipe. When I try starting the bike it won't start cold unless I turn the gas off and then it will start up? Does this mean float height is to high? I have a 55 slow and a 172 main in it right now. Anything will help thanks

    96 RM 250 needle R1468m?

    Thanks Jcat, that's what I needed. I ride a lot on trails but also do about 30% of my riding on a track also. I had it on the 3rd setting and seemed to bog a little at the1/4- 3/4 range. Should I go go down to the 2nd again? I ride at about 1500-2000 feet I have a stock pj with a 55 slow and a 168 main for now but going to put in the 170. I have a new gold series pipe, new reeds so plan on re jetting it and tuning it up so its a good rev all the way through the throttle range.

    96 RM 250 needle R1468m?

    Hey guys so I took apart my carb to adjust the pos of the needle and Found that I have a R1468M needle? I know this isnt the stock one but my question is this the right type of needle for my bike and if so would it be a richer or leaner needle from the stock? I dont really know how the numbers work for the needles but know the basics like raise the clip you lean out the needle. Anything will help thanks

    What Reeds do you run on Rm 250

    The V force system is just the cage and reeds right? and the RAD set up includes the boot?

    Even if you go with stock cage and reeds you will still have to jet your bike for elevation temp ect... I was thinknig of going stock too but I really want to try the RAD set up. what web site you getting that OEm cage and reed for $66?

    blow motor?

    My pipe didnt fall of all the way, it just came off the cyliner a little. I had an extra gasket between the cylinder and pipe which blew the pipe o ring. I also only had one spring on at the time and with all the bumps and jumps it came loose.

    I was looking at getting those also. How many others have you tried? What other reeds are people running in their bikes?
  11. I was thinking about getting some new reeds because I have a small gap between the reeds and cage. I was wondering what reeds other people run and how they like them? any input would be great

    blow motor?

    fixed the problem, Cleaned the carb and new spark plug and started right up. I did order new springs and oring for exaust. I also notices when checking things out that I could see some light through my reeds, I have new boysen carbon fiber reeds and was thinking about trying the power reeds to see if that will stop light from coming in. I read that if I hav a gap between my reeds and cage Jetting will be a never ending issue. what you guys think?

    blow motor?

    Ok So I have done a complete rebuild on the motor which it only has about 9 hours. I also have put a new air filter in the bike also. Today The bike started up fine and I let warm up, When I started riding a round it seemed fine and first and seems to start bogging from about half to full throttle. I kept riding for a few minutes then all of a sudden the bike bogg big time and died. I stopped check things out and saw the pipe was off the head so I pushed it back in where to o ring held it in. I kicked the bike which it started up fine so I rode it for another 100 yards and then it bogged again and died. I kicked which started then died. Let it set there for a couple on minutes and then the bike just wouldnt start anymore. I then took the plug off clean it then started up and then bogged and died then just wouldnt start after that. I then said **** it and the guys at thumper will help me out! Hope this will help.

    I just cleaned the carb and put it back on today before I rode. I dont have a fuel filter so something could have clogged the main. Even if the main jet was clogged the bick should still start and idle.
