I really like the bike for the steep, technical trail riding I do. I used two of the smaller size. When it comes to details, we noticed. These very trick bulbs are ultra bright and draw very low current, about the same as a stock bulb 2. Two of the vent hoses connect at the upper left and right sides of the carb at the T-junctions built into the carb. I removed it before I sold the bike.
If you see fluid inside the hose, slip the hose out of the wire retainer, remove the plug, and drain the fluid. I can glance at it while riding in slow sections and keep an eye on the radiator temperature. The Wacker handguards went on easily. This switch circuit is open when the key is off, so the starter button in series with the clutch switch will not work until the key is turned on. Radiator guards I bought some Flatland Racing radiator guards because they were touted as the strongest. After looking at some jetting notes that others had posted, I changed the main to a 128, the pilot to a 42, and the needle to clip position 4. The linear and smooth binders make it easy to pick your way over, down or through technical sections with confidence.
The R brake line has the two pieces of gray tape wrapped around it, taping the odometer wire since removed and brake line together. Here's a short description of what I did. You have to remove the seat, radiator shrouds, and tank to get to the innermost mounting tab and the wiring. Some muscle is required to get the X to carve. He observed that the stock setup had the grilles mounted flush to the vertical vanes on the inside of the shrouds and my mounting resulted in a gap. Are you using all available power now? The foam prevents debris from getting into the open end of the hose. It helps to leave the radiator cap on to hold the liquid in the radiator somewhat.
Remove the torx bolt at the rear of the muffler to remove the diffuser. I spent quite a bit of time looking for clutch and ignition cover protectors. I usually keep an eye on the Racetemp strip, and I've never seen it over 190 degrees F. The only thing different is that the ignition key must also be on. There are four wires connected to the switch: three male and one female. It is held in the foam with a short piece of wire through the hose and foam. Its off road-specific, wide-ratio, five-speed transmission is managed via a cable-operated clutch.
Carburetor I checked the stock main and pilot jets and the needle; they matched the service manual. So I decided to keep the stock clutch interlock. The temperature immediately started back down. So a 08 09 header may not fit in on my bike? The numbers indicate that the guards do make the radiators run hotter. The X brake line is about 6. The engine is paired with a 5-Speed transmission and total fuel capacity is 1.
I bought some Racetemp engine thermometer strips. The other branch runs behind the transmission and downwards with all the other drain hoses; it is also open-ended. Eventually, I spent a tidy sum to have the forks shortened; see ' Forks - shortening' below. It's easy to find; it's the only wire that has a simple pull-apart junction. I parked my bike in the garage door with the exhaust outside and the engine and radiators inside. The female connector on the end mates with the male end of the switch wire.
This very bad tendency completely disappeared. What adjustments should I do for the altitude? The stock bulb is a dual filament bulb; all you need to add is a switch and extra wires. You can cut off the male ends on the switch wires and splice them directly into the squeeze connectors. Too bad; his work on my forks was outstanding. Does not overly tax the stock components and increases power by ~10%. The mods are in alphabetical order, not in the order I did them. You'll have 4 washers left over.
In the stock configuration, these are gathered into a bundle and routed behind the tranny and downward. They make the bike stand out too much. The fan fits fine with the Flatland radiator guard. Reserve tank vent hose aka overflow bottle vent hose The reserve tank vent hose runs from the reserve tank to the middle of the bike and then joins other hoses to run down behind the transmission. Remove the tape and reposition the plug. The skid plate fits snugly with only one minor problem.
The 250X didn't need much, and I think it looks ok. I installed the forks in the stock mounting position in the triple camps, fork tube top flush with the upper triple clamp edge. If you see excessive oil dripping from the lower hose, recheck the transmission oil level. It is held in the foam with a short piece of wire through the hose and foam. I checked the plug a few times after the change to make sure I wasn't too lean.
