    how much exhaust is too much

    so i have began the daunting take of properly jetting my 2002 kx 250. i suppose the better i get at riding it, the more i notice small hesitations in power. first im just working on the air screw and pilot jet. i feel like i got it sounding and responding nicely but when i shut it down and turned around i was met by a cloud of exhaust smoke. i had ran it for about 10 to 15 mins so it was warm.. just wondering how much is too much or am i just overthinking it

    Fouling plugs

    That really what it seems like to me... As soon as the bike is up to temperature I don't have to worry about it... And the bike runs perfectly, but until it's warm......

    Ok I'll start there.. never had this oil before but I'm not having good luck with it

    Honestly guys I haven't really jetted a carb before... I got the bike in October fixed it up, made adjustments I thought it needed and that's it needle position, I'll change that, should I make any jet changes

    Fouling plugs

    2002 kx 250.. I usually just put the choke on to start it and turn it off when it starts.. just warm it up like an other bike but mainly with this one I try warm it up quick cause once it's warm the bike runs like a champ but until then...

    sorry wasnt thinking about all the little details... 2200 is about the elevation here in north idaho. i put a new air fliter in this winter. i put a new top end in it over the winter, the bike runs awesome once its warm but until then its fighting fouling. there is some spooge not to much though im using maxima castol 927 at 40:1 air screw is about 1 1/2 turns, nettle is at the first position... 155 main and 52 pilot

    Fouling plugs

    So my bike runs great no complaints.. except one.. when I start up the bike.. until it's fully warmed up, it really wants to foul plugs.. for instance since I have had the bike, which I got the bike in October 2017 and haven't rode it more then 10 times, I have fouled 5 plugs.. it's just when it starts and until it is fully warmed up it is very prone.. I can't really understand why. I get that fouling plugs happens, but it's happening to much and I'm hoping to get a mechanical opinion to give me a good start.. thanks!!!

    Hydraulic clutch vs auto clutch

    Not to mention it a custom build personalized to you.. makes it pretty sweet

    Hydraulic clutch vs auto clutch

    I know it makes more sense to but a Lyn or something but I'm having fun building this bike so I'll continue throwing money at it for awhile lol

    Hydraulic clutch vs auto clutch

    Dropped a tooth on the front sprocket and a gnarly pipe.. playing it by ear now to see if I need anything else but I'm pretty happy right now... But over the winter I rebuilt the top end vertex piston, rebuilt the forks new tire and brakes Clarke tank and various other things but the gnarly pipe changed the bike the most.. also dialed in the carb the best I could

    Unless your 65 like my dad and just want to have fun and not break yourself.. then rekluse clutches work perfectly lol

    Hydraulic clutch vs auto clutch

    Both are great but for me personally I'm all about that auto clutch... For the type of riding I do here in idaho, a lot of mountain single track and tight technical trails the auto clutch is great.. and unless you have actually ridden a rekluse it's hard to comprehend how game changing they are.. my dad has one on his 300.. I'm saving my pennies for one as we speak... But if your not really riding a lot of tight technical single track that requires a lot of clutch work, I would say it's probably not worth it... Got my own project kx 250 2002.. 47 enduro on youtube

    KX250 Woods Bike

    Just did a finished mine this winter.. honestly the best things I did was dialing in my carb and and installing a fmf gnarly pipe... It added justvthebright amount of bottum end pull and defiantly turned it into a weapon
