    SR250, get me close to the ton

    Ya I just live with it. I sometimes get a stumble trying to accelerate into first. I need to add a fuel filter and possibly clean the carb again. I found a replacement carb on Amazon for $60. Might be worth a try. Sent from my iPhone using DO THE TON

    SR250, get me close to the ton

    It’s still wonky. The idle is seated on the screw. It seems when ambient temp is warm it idles high and it idles low when it’s cold out. Sent from my iPhone using DO THE TON

    SR250, get me close to the ton

    Update. I got a “gel” battery from Amazon for $50. Also found 2 prong led blinkers. It fires right up and everything functions as it should electronically. I still need to solder and shrink wrap the new indicators. The bike is odd that it idles high when warm even when I drop the set screw...

    SR250, get me close to the ton

    Thanks gents. I’ll dig a little deeper into it when I have time. I’m going to borrow my buddies motorcycle lift, pull the wheels and take them to a shop. He says there’s a place that may do them for a reasonable price. Sub $200 would be nice. While I’m at it I may look at swapping the rear...

    I’d love to see yours Jerry. You’re somewhat close location wise lol. Only 550 miles away. Here are tire pics but I need to swap them since they’re 20something years old. Sent from my iPhone using DO THE TON

    SR250, get me close to the ton

    I think it needs bar end mirrors though and i still need to figure out how to get the turn signals to work again. Must be the LEDs. Sent from my iPhone using DO THE TON

    SR250, get me close to the ton

    And yea Jerry I’m pretty sure that’s the tire I’m running. The bummer is these tires look new but are over 20 years old. I’ve ridden up to 55-60 but I feel like I should get new(er) tubes and tires if I’m going to ride it on higher speed roads so that will be a few more hundred to spend. Sent...

    SR250, get me close to the ton

    Sorry ya’ll. I got sidetracked with life issues. Porcelanow your bike looks great! Honestly I don’t know how I got it to sit so flush. It just dropped. Right down in. I drilled holes in the plastic toward the back and bolted them to the brackets for the original seat. It has been a hard year...

    SR250, get me close to the ton

    Thanks. I’ll update. I’m in sacramento Ca area. The seat was a cheapie I bought off eBay for $25. The front tab slides under the tank, I drilled into the plastic fairings under the seat and attached the back of the seat that way, and the very back drops right in front of the black tab. It...

    SR250, get me close to the ton

    You’re right. And I believe in supporting people who specialize in a niche market. Between the shipping and the exchange rate it just kills it but then again, it’s a fun bike with no payment. Ok. I guess I’ll bite the bullet and look at exhaust and see what he recommends for the carb. I’d also...

    Thanks Wrench. Yes he is awesome, I have seen his stuff and may need a few of his bits. I was hoping to find some easy swaps and do this on the cheap. It’s the shipping that kills it but I guess I should suck it up. Sent from my iPhone using DO THE TON

    SR250, get me close to the ton

    I found this 1981 stock SR250 last year and updated the cosmetics on the cheap. Now I’d like a little more power. I started riding it to work which is 13 miles with hills on 55-65 roads. I know a lot of you on here have modded these. I’m just wondering if anyone knows of a basic header swap...

    I think about 80mph. I’ll never have the nads to max it but my brother in law might. Sent from my iPhone using DO THE TON
