    PWK Carb on 01 CR250

    Not 100% sure, This is a new boot i just put on didnt know there was a difference. I think im going to run it as is seems to fit well. I was just curious if everyone doing the swap is changing boots or running original didnt hear anything about changing boots before the swap.

    Cant use oem boot as it has boyesen reeds, uses just a real short hose looking boot. Sure seemed to lock in the groove nice, wonder if they use a differant groove then oem.

    My pic is of carb to reed boot fitment. Carb is fully bottomed in reed boot. That spacer would just move whole boot and assembly rearward causing fitment issues with airbox. Anyone with a 2001 that has done the swap should have run in to this.

    Thanks for reply, the pwk has a longer snout then the mikuni. The way I have it now it has as much sealing surface as the stock mikuni did. Thats why Im thinking it should be good.

    For those that have done the conversion, im using 01 boyesen reeds and boot with a 2000 pwk carb. Carb went in to boot not bad and groove seemed to lock nicely in boot. But the boot is a little short on carb snout. I dont see it being an issue, is this how you guys run them with no issues? I test rode and everything worked great just curious.

    A flat crossmember is ok to drill through, but in our climate I have heard many times not to drill in to a tubular crossmember as salt/ water gets in and corrodes it from the inside out.

    Thanks for all the ideas, you guys have some slick set ups. I ended up just mounting d rings, as it was the easiest/ cheapest solution. Two 3/8 bolts holding each ring, went through a crossmember with each bolt, painted the hole after drilling and used a sealant on each bolt. Thinking it will be plenty strong and shouldnt have any corrosion issues.

    Well after all that, and actually getting under the trailer and looking turns out it is a z channel frame. So since I am not screwing in to a tube crossmember I am going to use the e track and attach to the crossmembers and use a sealant at each hole

    Thanks for all the help, I was also planning to use some sealant on the holes so thats great.

    In your opinion/ experience, do you think using the flat bar instead of 1x1 plywood would suffice?

    Damn thats nice, did you use treated 1’x1’ plywood on underside of anchors, or just regular spruce? I think I may still go with the 1/8 thick x 2” wide x 4” long steel underneath, i think it will be plenty strong with less area to hold moisture between the layers. Maybe im over thinking it??

    Thanks for the help guys. The trailer did come with e track not installed, the reason I dont want to use it is it says to drill in to each crossmember the e track crosses. I live in canada and drilling in the frame is just creating another spot for moisture and rust to form.

    Thats a good idea, Im thinking some d rings like this. With some 1/8x2 flat bar on underside of wood.
