    Suzuki rmx250 1995

    Well I purchased an rmx250 the owner told me had rebuilt it but after it not idling and just didn’t seem right I carried out a compression test only having 80psi removed the topend the barrel is cracked and scored and a new piston just installed, so now its turned into a full bike rebuild . anyways my question is i have purchased a pwk38 carb to fit as part of the re build spec at present Specification: 170 Main Jet 55 Pilot Jet 48-DDJ Throttle Needle 7.0 Slide 46mm. OD Cylinder-Side 63mm. OD Airfilter-Side 91mm. Length What jetting would be safe to use in the uk? As i dont wont to damage the new rebuilt engine. the carb fitted atm is a rm250 and the slide and needle i have been told are to rich im thinking or also buying a fmf granery as the bike has rm250 powervalves fitted to bring the low end power back thats lost when doing the swap to rm from rmx valves

    Rmx1995 will this carb fit ??

    Well after some messing the bike idles and starting on the first kick with chock on , drop the choke will idle i did the filling on the clutch basket and took it for a blast i think there something wrong with the powevalve its kicking in just after 1/4 throttle I nearly killing mystelf , i know the last owner has put a new 2 piece valve in there as the old one broke up . Do you think the adjustments is off or do they always ride like this it seriously shocked me . It would be impossible to ride a tail as soon as you open the throttle your on the back wheel not snapping it just gental opening that would normally be like a cruising rate ? Could this be a carb issue ?

    Rmx 250 1995 clutch basket

    Iv filed them all flat and tried to get them as straight as possible. The clutch now is working result but the friction plue taps are worn so ill get some new plates it just a little noisey like a chatter and when you pull the clutch it stops how long does the filing trick last ?

    Ok jets 55 and 180 , seems highest idle at 1and a half turns out i can get it to idle but needs a fraction on the cable seems to rev nice on the stand , havnt been on it yet but seems better the choke knob actually does something now. But doesnt seem have enough in it to adjust it to idle .

    Rmx1995 will this carb fit ??

    Well thats my plan to get this idle sorted and take it from there he told me he had cleaned the carb but after looking in the tank it was full of mud so iv removed and cleaned it also new fuel filter and tap as the. Flow wasnt very fast , also the pilot jet was blocked so that wouldn’t of been helpful the carb is now spotleSs and all passages clear iv got a couple of jets now to play with , he told me the bike arrived with no carb and that he purchased the rm250’ carb not rmx because its all he could find im just waiting on some new 2 stroke oil so i can mix fresh so no all the fuels good . what jets would you start with ? Please and how many turns on the mixture screw . does the plug type change when in the UK ?
