    2001 Rm 250 Jetting

    when i bought the bike it was winter , there were no test done at that time in any magazines. my question is , what would be ball park jetting on this bike. 1000 ft above sea level,right now the temperature is between 5 celsius to 17 when we ride. canada eh.needle is in the center position. pilot is a 52. i installed an fmf sst, jetted it down to a 158 for sumer, came originally with a 168!!!. compared to my buddies yz , my bike feels totally less responsive. it doesnt feel like it will rev out on any track , however i can still pull holeshots with it. any thing else other than porting to make improvement for this model? even with its short comings the bike isnt all that bad.

    You will want to run a 48 pilot and put the needle in the #2 (from top of needle) position. The 158 main is about right for 55-80 degree temps. Note that you can swap both jets thru the bottom drain plug.

    I bought a Bills Pipe and Boyesen reeds for mine, and it helped a LOT with the top end revs and better mid range transistion. The taller (RM125) seat foam is a nice touch, too, if you're a taller person. Otherwise, I raced my 01 RM250 all season with pretty much good results.

    More Ideas

    Zook,

    The fuel is a big issue with this bike. I wasn't happy with the way it ran on pump gas and have been told a good race fuel like vpc12 would make a big difference. Right now I'm having work done to lower the compression, so I probably won't be going the race gas route myself.


    MN KDXer, do you remember what kind of Boyeson Reeds you installed?

    Chief,
    I installed the less pricey Boyesen reeds (power?). I talked to Boyesen tech dept, and they said the lower buck reeds were better for boosting the low and mid, and the Pro reeds were more for higher end durability. (at least, that's what I "think" I remember them telling me.) Whatever the actual details, those reeds seemed to be the best idea for me to boost the lower end power.

    From what I recall, the reeds added some top end over-rev. Not really more peak hp, but just added an extension to the powerband for those times when wringing it out a little more seems like the thing to do.

    I had Eric Gorr port my engine for Mo power everywhere. It made a huge difference throughout the power band. There is more bottom and more over rev but the best part is the smooth transition from bottom all the way to the top. Itís like a tractor.

    Iím using stock reeds and pipe with Sunoco 94 octane pump gas. My jetting is 160 main (soon to be 158 due to some spooge), stock needle 2nd clip from top, stock power jet, 48 pilot, sir screw 1.75 turns out.

    Iíd recommend Ericís work before trying any aftermarket parts. Itís well worth the $120 ($110 with the DRN discount) and lots cheaper than pipe, silencer, reeds etc.
