Meaning that you stayed with the 122.5/42.5 but only did the two turns? Maybe the 130 was on a different version rather than Canadian spec, I have read so many threads and spec sheets it is hard to keep them straight. Back to work in the garage, the fragility of some of these plastic parts has me a little concerned because the hoses area really fused on.

Thanks.

I have stayed completely stock. I haven't had the carb off because I do not want to screw it up, nor have I adjusted it. The original owner told me the same thing; he hadn't touched it! Not tinkering with it is hard for me) If the jets are as published,they are a great starting point, as the bike runs really well 99% of the time
I am going from a 1996 Yamaha service manual, note that model 4BE3 is the canadian spec.

I find that the engine is screaming and I'm only doing 60mph.
Can someone please let me know what the stock sprocket numbers are so I can determine if my bike is stock or modified?
cheers

I'm still stock 15/45 gearing but upsizing the rear from 120 to 140 (/80-18) which means 4.9% longer legs. Instead upsizing from 15 to 16 front would've been 6.7% higher geared. It'll be interesting to see the impact. I may hold off to wring every last mile out of this tire. It's not dead yet.



We'll see if my Murphy Insurance pays off or not. LOL

I see they're up now, thanks for re-posting!

I didn't measure mine, but since they take 6202 bearings, it has to be 15mm since that is the i.d. of the bearings.

The parts diagram in the manual doesn’t list the function of this hose, maybe a vent? I doubt if the plastic elbow fitting is replaceable, it isn’t listed in the parts diagram. Anyone have any ideas what to do with it?[/SIZE][/FONT]

I believe that to be the overflow hose. Does it come from float bowl area?

I have a Powercore 4 pipe on my bike. It is loud and obnoxious for my needs of a little 225 backwoods runner. Has anyone inserted the quiet core and could give me some performance observation?

>"I have a Powercore 4 pipe on my bike. "

I have installed the Powercore noise-reduction spark arrestor on a WR250R, it quiets down pretty nicely.
About $34 bucks I think.

(Note: This was installed in a Q4 pipe, had to bend the spark arrestor screen to get it to go in.)
