  1. Thank you for your replies. I will try to find a good tutorial on how to take apart the clutch set so I can check the basket first see if it's grooved because a replacement basket looks expensive. I'll also check a service manual and see if the plates were installed correctlt.
  2. Thank you all for your replies. I'm planning on buying my replacement now. Which one here would be the clutch basket? http://www.motosport.com/KW/dirtbike/oem-parts/HONDA/1998/CR250/CLUTCH Keep in mind I didn't change the plates myself I had a mechanic do it for me. I'm still new to this and just learning the simple mechanical stuff before I move on to the more complicated matters. Would it be #4 the CLUTCH (OUTER) or am I at the wrong page?
  3. Nah I only recently got it. It's a '98 CR250 so probably has seen a lot of terrible days.
  4. Sort of. If it did have grooves would the next step be an OEM replacement of the basket or what repair would I have to make? Thank you so far.
  5. As the title says. Is this normal? I've recently changed the clutch plates but it was happening before that as well. The clutch linkage seems to be fine according to a mechanic. This is my first bike so I'm not sure if this is odd or not. Sometimes I have to rev as I shift into first or the RPMs will drop so low after 1st gear engages and the bike jerks forward that it will just stall.

  8. I manned up and bought a replacement carb and also new clutch kit. This solved the problem. My old carb turned out to be in a very bad condition; the choke knob was missing which was probably what was causing the air leak (or at least some of it). Thank you all again for the help.
  9. Thank you all very much. I'm in the process of checking and changing a few things and will report back here as soon as I'm done with the results.
  10. Thank you. Are reeds universal or are they dependent on the type of carburetor you have? What's the part number of the reed I would need for my carb (KEIHIN PJ 28LALK)? If anyone knows I'd appreciate it.
  11. Hello. I have a '99 CR250 with an '03 CR250 engine (not sure if that matters but putting it out there). The carb is a KEIHIN PJ 28LALK. This problem started happening very recently. If I let go of the throttle at low RPMs the engine becomes very jerky and revs constantly by itself. It'll rev somewhat like this (lowercase n would be normal idle and uppercase N is revving) nnnnnNNnnnnnNNnnnnnNNnnnnnNNnnnnn This happens regardless if the bike's in gear or neutral. Now to be very precise this happens even when I accelerate (not just when I let go of the throttle) but it only seems to happen, as I mentioned before, at the lower RPMs. When I'm revving in the upper-end (I'm hope I'm using this term correctly) the ride is smooth and doesn't jerk. When I'm in gear it feels like I'm being rammed from behind every couple of seconds. It'll jerk as the engine revs high then stabilizes then jerks and etc. I recently changed the transmission oil by myself and although it's my first time ever changing oil for anything, it's a really simple process and I have no idea how I could've messed it up or how it should even matter since the bike has an unstable idle regardless if I'm in gear or not. I used 20W50 even though the manual recommends 10W40 (couldn't get a hold of a proper brand 10W40 so temporarily using 20W50). Now here's another problem in which I'm not sure if it's related or not; when I put the bike in 1st from a standstill it'll slightly jerk forward and if I don't rev it at the same time the RPMs will drop low enough to shut the bike off (most of the time at least). Could this indicate a problem with the clutch not fully disengaged when I'm pulling the clutch lever in? Could use some insight. Thank you.
  12. Thank you very much for your reply. I'm going to check the reeds as soon as I can. http://www.ebay.com/itm/NEW-KEIHIN-CHOKE-VALVE-LEVER-KNOB-PLUNGER-FITS-PJ-34MM-36MM-34-36-MM-CARBURETOR-/371141396331?pt=Motorcycles_Parts_Accessories&hash=item5669c0476b&vxp=mtr Would this be the choke knob I would need for my carb? EDIT: Nevermind. Says it's only for 1985 CR250's. What about this one http://www.ebay.com/itm/NEW-KEIHIN-CHOKE-VALVE-LEVER-KNOB-OVAL-SIDE-CARBURETOR-38MM-38-MM-PJ-SERIES-/231343690940?pt=Motorcycles_Parts_Accessories&hash=item35dd2894bc&vxp=mtr ?
