    Attaching the Airbox Boot

    I don't have a problem getting on the carb, so greasing the boot isn't the solution. It's like the boot is is a half inch too short to reach the carb. I will check the subframe, but I don't think its bent. I will also try loosng it from the head. Thanks for the tips.

    Attaching the Airbox Boot

    I don't know if my situation is one-off or not, but I have had trouble reattaching the airbox boot to the carb every time I've had it off. It normally takes me an hour of fiddling with the thing each time. I end up loosing it from the subframe and pushing and shoving and cussing until it magically decides to go on. Anybody have any advice or tips?

    need jetting suggestions at altitude

    I'm thinking about a 140 main, 40 pilot and dropping the R needle a notch. Stock was a 130 main. What do you guys think.
  4. I am planning to ride at Sweetwater Nevada in a couple of weeks and need suggestions for jetting my 2006 CRF250X. I have opened the top of the airbox and modified the stock muffler. I am currently running a 155 main, 42 pilot, NCYS needle (4th clip), and 55 leakjet w/ the o-ring accelerator pump mod at elevations from 300' to 5000'. Sweetwater is 7000'-9000' and one ride will be to 12000'. Anyone have suggestions? Thanks,

    XR400 Running Again

    My XR400 had the same broken shaft when I bought it. I had it repaired, $400 at the local shop with engine out, and just broke it again in the same place as the result of a lowside on the shifter side. Several dealers have said that the shaft can be replaced without splitting the cases, but I don't believe them. I just talked to a shop last week and they said $450, but also said that it can be done without splitting the cases and with the engine in the bike. I like the price, but am not sure that they won't bil me more than the estimate if they fine they have to split the cases.
