carb

  1. Technical
    Hey all! Another new guy here. I got the itch to ride again and thought I'd pick up a 06, 250. I've done some track riding and have owned bikes from KLR650 to a Monster. I picked up this bike cheap and thought I'd put some time into it and enjoy getting on two wheels again. I can get the...

    I recently fell off my bike, it's a 2009 250 (not sure if it's an r) and am just now getting around to fixing it. When I try to turn it on I have to hold the start button for a few seconds until it gets to a comfortable idle or else it just shuts off. Under full choke it still idles very low and...

    I recently bought my first bike on craigslist as a project bike. It was sitting outside on the street for a year, so I emptied the tank, put on new plugs and got new fuel in it. It turned over, but won't start unless you spray a bit of starter fluid in the intake. After it got warmed up for a...

    Hey all, Havent been on here in a while, but currently have a couple of 250's in the garage and one of them needs some carb work. First off a little back ground on the bike: 2006 with 1304 miles on it. Owner let it sit outside for a few months and I bought it as a non starting project. I...

    Hey guys, I am planning on removing my carbs for a clean pretty soon. Are there any additional maintenance items I should look at while everything is pulled apart?

    I rebuilt the carbs on a 2007 Ninja 250. Unfortunately I didn't take a picture before I started. I put the carbs back on the bike. It seems to idle ok, a little erratic. When I give it some throttle it slowly goes back to idle. I'm wondering if I have the vacuum hoses connected incorrectly...

    You guys have been real helpful to me in the past, so lets crunch some craniums. I was going to install a jet kit on buddy's 03 but he got t-boned by a truck last sunday, he's ok just broke his leg and 3 ribs but he's alive and recovering. I have an 09 just wondering if they were compatible. I...

    Hey guys what's up? I'm back again with a minor problem. As I posted yesterday, I cleaned out my carbs not too long ago and now in the process of putting everything back together. Yesterday I posted about a mysterious hose which I soon found out was a drain hose. Now I have another problem.. a...

    Ok, just ook apart my wifes 250 to clean the carbs and cant figure out where the other end of this hose goes. One side goes to the petcock and the other? I included a pic. The other end of the hoses goes to the vacuum port on top of the engine. Please help! Its driving me nuts. Thanks!

PO says it runs great ( but not optimal). but could use a re jetting of the carb. is that a normal thing that should be done or is there possible more issues. and what would that run on average or were would one start...

    Red with purple in color, blown head gasket for the motor, but the bike other than the head gasket is fine. I have a full bike, except for the front cowling and the starter. Rims are perfect but tires are way to old to ride on. Let me know what parts you need and let's make a deal and get your...

    So I pulled my carbs and cleaned them for the first time today, pain in the ass to pull them out with the stock airbox. Also shimmed the needles all went pretty well but I noticed a little pit in my carbs behind one of the butterflys should I look into new carbs? Droid Bionic

    I have read alot here and havent really found a solution to my problem. A lil history first. I got a very good deal on this bike. 250 bucks with all new plastic and fresh paint. The problem is it wont run. I can crank it and get it to idle perfect. Around 200o rpms once warmed up. Someone tried...

    I bought a bike today that has been sitting for a year. It didn't have enough gas in it to test drive it. It kept stalling out when I tried to get drive it. I put a gallon of (stupid me) 87 octane in it followed by some carb cleaner and tried to ride it. It did better this time and let me drive...
