    Vintage carb

    Lectron basically told me they couldn’t give me the measurements to see if the rods would cross, I’d have to buy one. All I have is the Blue magnum carb a single needle and it’s at the max rich adjustment and the plugs on my kdx400 2T are coming out tan to pitch white.....

    Looking for anyone that may know where I can get a set of metering rods for the 36mm 2 stroke.

    Kdx400 Wiring

    Hey guys I’ve decided after troubleshooting everything on my bike my issues are caused by a failing CDI box I was gonna switch over to a Chinese one that’s “universal” but the original CDI box has a 6th wire that grounds the stator plate I believe. I was curious if I could ground the stator to the frame and ground the new CDI box separately if it’s possible to switch over to a newer CDI. Anyway from what I’ve read CDI boxes are pretty much interchangeable and the way the kdx advances it’s timing is also in play.. From what I read the Ignition advance is controlled by how fast/how many times the flywheel passes the trigger coil. Any advice would help

    Kdx400 problems HELP

    I thought this too at first but it does the same thing with another carb that’s a Mikiuni.

    Kdx400 problems HELP

    I believe so, the coil is fine... I don’t think I can test my cod without replacing it can I?

    Kdx400 problems HELP

    Ok so after doing everything I’ve done to this bike and still having issues I’m about to junk it. I had the frame welded and the exhaust patched I got it back a few weeks ago. Put a used “blue magnum” metering rod carb on, fresh oil, new coil wire. Still it won’t rev all the way out and at full throttle it bogs and backfires. What makes no sense is it’s backfiring and the plug is black.

    Smart carb tuning

    Hello everyone, I got a blue magnum smart carb from the 70s on a kdx 400. At full throttle it bogs and backfires but smokes really bad so I don’t understand why it’s backfiring as I thought that was a lean condition. It’s a 2 stroke and I’ve checked all passages of the carb everything’s clean and clear.

    Vintage carb...

    I recently acquired a EI/SW blue magnum carb, it’s functional but the floats are in rough shape. Where would I look to find replacement parts or fuel resistant foam?

    1996 Dr350

    I’m back to update on the Dr project and see if anyone has any answers to an issue I’ve noticed. So I got it running, got a used head and fresh gaskets. But I ended up pulling the valve cover off cause I did a poor job of sealing it with three bond and I noticed the exhaust tappet/cam lobe is slightly scratched/discolored. This is probably a Stupid question because I’m pretty sure it came from oil starvation because the oil level dropped to about half on the dipstick due to a oil hose tearing from the pressure I think but I was thinking it could be something else too since everyone talks about the dr’s having a head prone to oil starvation. I cleaned up the marks you could feel with some 800 grit wet sanding with 10w30 and it cleaned up ok so I’m not too worried.

    1996 dr 350 (kickstart) question

    So I’m new to the DR’s i finally got mine running as I got it blown up with a ruined head. Now I have a few questions before I finish buttoning up the Engine. Firstly the shift drum bolt that comes loose, Can I remove it and reinstall it without having the shift drum parts fall out of alignment or something along the lines of that? Secondly I’ve read on a few forums that the head is prone to oil starvation but that if you regularly check your oil your fine is that true or do I need to mod my head somehow? Thirdly is there anything else I need to know about these DRs that is prone to issues? I know about the pin and I ended up jb welding the hole after seeing someone else do that and it held up so that’s covered. Thanks in advance for any help! Y’all have been extremely helpful with my issues before.

    1980 kdx 400 stutter issue

    So I believe it was my air filter

    1980 kdx 400 stutter issue

    Just checked the reeds they look like they’re seating fine. I don’t know what my float level is cause I’ve never checked it before so I’ll definitely look into that. After going through the carb and reeds I took the air box cover off and the k&n filter was so filthy you couldn’t see light through it, didn’t think to check it because my book says to check it every 300 miles to 6 months and I had just put the filter in a couple months ago (facepalm) so maybe the filter was starving it of air ?

    1980 kdx 400 stutter issue

    Ok so I’ve done just about everything I can think of to fix this. My kdx will ride for a bit with no issues then it’ll start sputtering like it’s running out of gas then eventually it’ll stop but during the sputtering it gets worse if I give it wot then it’ll foul the plug. My jetting looks fine after looking at the plug (chocolate brown) and I’ve replaced the coil. I’m leaning towards its a jetting issue because it never did this in the summer. But I wanted opinions

    No, The Piston is pretty mangled but i think its the stock bore. Im gonna try to get a hone and hone the bore out hopefully it works. Still searching for a decently priced head..
