    '06 KLX 250 Idle issue

    Ill find out and report back, little late tonight, gotta work tomrrow. Ill definitly let ya know.....should I turn it out say 1/2 turn, or just crank on it?? BTW, thanks for the help. I really do appericate it!
  3. I have a '06 KLX 250 Stock Kenihin CVK carb Installed Dynojet jet kit per instructions. Stock pilot jet 2.5 turns on fuel screw (stock) 132 DJ main (a little rich for my altitude/setup, might need to drop back to the 128) Clip on #4 needle groove It idles at 3,000 rpm and I can get it to drop to around 2500, but itll easily stall out. Anything lower than that and it just wont idle! I double checked the tach with a Fluke meter/inductive RPM reading. I ve taken the carb out and rechecked everything. Jets are clear, blew out everything with compressed air and reassembled. Double checked the fuel screw at 2.5 turns. This has got me scratching my head! Thanks for any input!! John

    Anyone Installed A Rad Fan On A Klx 300?

    The 250 tank is shaped different. Some people on the kawasaki250 board have used weatherproof computer type fans that are thinner and run on 12v with success.

    FNG here!

    Thanks Guys! Im not too sure what direction Im going to go with on this thing as Im thinking of Motarding it. I rode it for a while today and took it on a very short trail. Its gonna take some getting used to compaired to what Ive been riding for the past 3 years. Are there any specific tweaks I can do for *free*. Ive seen a lot that cost $$. What would the first upgrade be? Im thinking front end work (brakes, springs, fork oil, ect) Thanks for the welcome! John

    Benefits of motorcycle mechanic?

    .........been there done that!!!!!!!!!!!! Im a "motorcycle technician" I work on JetSkis and 4-wheelers (and wear may other hats at work too, service manager, sales, parts, janitor, ect). Ive just started in the industry after getting burnt out on cars (worked on Mercedes, Acura, Honda, and Porsche). I do it for the passion, though I do get paid well and im Hourly wage instead of comission like in the auto industry and other MC tech shops. This insures quality work, and thats all we turn out. No lying, no 1/2ass attempts to fix something. I dont let anything go out the shop door that I wouldnt ride myself. The paticular shop I work for is Suzuki/Kawasaki and family owned. They offer medical, but I declined as Im on my wifes policy. I had a 401k from a previous employer and will continue to make contributions of my own. It really all depends on what the company is offering (most mc shops are small buisness oriented) and what you negotiate at time of employment offer. Nothing is set in stone.
