2008 Ninja 250R throttle response?

It has been a while since I rode a carburetor bike so maybe I just need to change my riding habit. It seems like my 250R doesn't response to throttle input and would stall out if I give it a quick throttle when the RPM is below 2k. If it's above 2k then it wont' stall if I give it a quick throttle. Does your do that? I mean I can see this is a bitch to start out when going up hill because it does it when it's completely warmed up. It could be that the plugs are fouled and are not sparking well.

I have no issues with my bike when it comes to throttle response. I think you may have a faulty spark plug. I live on top of a hill and there is a stop sign half way up, and I have no problems with it. Good luck on trying to find out whats wrong with it.

Try rev a little higher. You won't pop a wheelie on your 250 unless you rev it way high.

You cant pop a wheelie on a 250 from reving to high anyways.

Yeah I feather the clutch at around 3-4k rpm so it won't stall on me. I just hate doing that because it seems like I'm going to wear the crap out of the clutch. On my track bike, you just need to let go the clutch and the bike will move on it's own, without reving it up. I took the bike out for a quick 100m ride, it seems to be fine just need to keep the rev high. The throttle seems to be better when the bike is hot, as in like 10 minutes of freeway ride of about 80-90mph. I guess it's just the nature of carburetor bikes.

You can if you dump the clutch too fast, which is what I was referring to since he's talking about take-offs.

Thats true but most people who have been riding for awhile don't dump the clutch ever, unless it was on purpose.
