KLR 250 help

Post by juddspaintballs » Sat Mar 23, 2013 10:44 pm

I'm working on my KLR. Among other things, I cut a big hole in the top of my airbox and pulled the baffle from the exhaust in an attempt to get more air flowing. I know I need to rejet the carb now, but I've never done any sort of carb work and I have no idea how. Anyone want to help or give some pointers? What sizes should I start with and so forth...

Sorry I cant give any actual help. But check out thumpertalk.com they have a klr specific forum where there is probably some good knowledge.

I'm getting help from KLR650.net (they have a 250 section) but some hands on help is always appreciated :)

I had a KLR and I enlarged the air box too. Actually I enlarged it too much and had a terrible time getting the jetting right. Good luck!

A needle/washers,mains and instructions. The Dynojet kits rely heavily on the needle which makes them very adjustable from idle on up.

What year 250? If Im not mistaken Kawi and Suzuki had pretty much identical 250s in the 90s, I may be able to help based off of DR/KLR250 compatability.

Did some homework and it looks like they dont share carbs, sorry man. :dry: +1 on Dynojet though, a little bit of cash but a life simplifier.
