  1. Need some help... Brand new 2017 FE250 that I had sent the suspension off to be redone. While it was down, I installed an emissions delete kit and installed the TPS reader. Bike is now back together and have been playing with the TPS adjustment and have settled on .63, but now I have the FI light come on steady after a few minutes of running. First, what does a solid FI light mean and second, could this be related to the TPS reader constantly installed while I tune or more emissions delete related? Bike runs great other than the FI light being on. Anyone have a similar experience?
  2. Thanks. Knowing this, I'll change it sooner rather than later.
  3. After reading this thread, I've purchased the Brembo slave piston to replace the piston in the Magura clutch slave cylinder. I also purchased an extra gasket for the slave assembly at the same time. Total cost- $51. Once the slave starts leaking, I'll do the replacement and hopefully that will be the end of this problem. I intend to replace the clutch master with a Clake One to make the clutch pull as light as I can get it. Yes, use DOT 4 or 5.1 and NOT 5.0. My bike is a leftover 17 250FE that I've had for less than a month. Haven't even ridden it yet. Shame on Husqvarna for not doing a recall on the slave assembly.
  4. Cool! Could you elaborate on what exactly it did for the bike? Also, what other engine mods have you done?
  5. I was fortunate enough to snag a set of the first batch of brackets that were produced. I bought some used crf250 footpegs and brackets off of eBay for $20 and mounted up the new brackets and pegs about a week ago. I'm happy to say I did not need to modify my brake pedal or shifter. Size 8 boots and everything works as they should. New riding position feels much more "natural" than the forward peg location of the stock pegs. This is a great mod and one that I have been waiting for for many years. The rearward relocation of the pegs and the slimmer feel of the bike is a welcome plus for me. Thanks xplodee! This is a genius move on your part.

  7. I've just ordered some o-rings from jetrus after doing some measurements of the old crusty ones that came out of the carb in the past. I'll update this thread once received and can confirm what size actually works in the stock carb and the actual dimensions of the o-rings for future reference.
  8. Jetsrus has a variety of o-rings listed, but not specifically for the 230F. I have an inquiry in to them so hopefully they carry something that will fit/ work. If anyone has the dimensions or part number of the original o-ring that would be of tremendous help. http://www.jetsrus.com/parts/orings.html http://www.jetsrus.com/mixture_screw/mixture_screw.html#hondadirt
  9. Does anyone have a suitable sub for the o-ring used in the fuel screw of the stock carb? I seem to go through them frequently most likely due to the ethanol gas we have here in Hawaii. Honda only seems to sell it as part of a gasket set. All I need is that o-ring, not the entire gasket set.
  10. Thank you. Yes, there are things of a higher priority than dirt bikes. hmmmm... Did I actually just say that???
  11. Anyone know where xplodee is? I've sent him a PM about a week ago and still no reply. This seems like a great mod that my bike needs.
  12. In fact, many "Phillips" screw on Japanese bikes are not Phillips screws at all. The JIS screws can be identified with a small round mark on the head itself. Most complaints of those awful, soft screws on Japanese bikes are in fact people using Phillips screwdrivers in JIS screws. Ever round out carb screws and complain about those junk Japanese screws? The reason is you're using the wrong screwdriver. Since learning about this difference some years ago and purchasing a set of JIS screwdrivers, I've never rounded out carbs screws. In fact, JIS screwdrivers can be used in Phillips head screws and they seem to have a better purchase, to me. Try it... you'll never go back to using a Phillips screwdriver on your Japanese bike again.
  13. Thanks guys. I didn't think they were different, but wanted to check to see if anyone knew for sure. It seems they should swap over without major problems.
  14. Is the frame from a 2006 CRF230F identical to one in a 2017 CRF230F? Has anything of significance changed to make them unable to be swapped out?
