The length of the 'stock' bolt will contact the cases.
Did you find this bolt locally or did you order it? I am having a hard time finding one close to me

So it looks like I'm missing roughly 3" as mine is just a hair over 10 3/4". No wonder it still leans a lot with a chunk of 2x4 under the foot. Wish I had thought of that when I was ordering parts last, but at least it won't stop me from riding today.
Thanks for the intel!

I just looked, that bolt is a good distance from the case. I guess if it worries you, just cut the bolt down a few mm.

Mine is definitely close. I'll cut it at some point

Fuel Pump...

Hello, I am a Greek owner of a ''second hand'' YAMAHA WR250R 10/08 model with 29,000 km (about 18,000 miles) and I believe that the bike needs a new fuel pump... I found this on ebay: http://www.ebay.com/itm/New-Intank-3...4c3946&vxp=mtr and I am thinking to buy it.... What is your opinion?

Looks like some aftermarket "generic" pump. The stock pump comes as a unit with base, wiring connector, sensor, etc.

I would order the Yamaha original part instead of trying to cobble something together.

I know it isn't anything you even touched this time, but could just be a fluke it happened after all this work. If you have the FMF fuel programmer on your bike, I've seen several post of people with the FMF fuel programmer and the 5th setting needing to be higher? Some of those just showed up out of the blue and also didn't happen all the time? Just a suggestion in case it turns out not to be related at all to anything you just did. Although logically, it does make sense to probably be something you just did, but other than a pinched fuel line, I'm not sure.

Thank you for the information.
Please go back to page 1106 and see the photos of the broken fuel pump and compare them with ''felco fuel pump and the installation kit''. I believe that ''felco fuel pump with the installation kit'' is the part that I need to repair yamaha fuel pump...

Any of you guys have this problem with your fmf programmer? :

When going down the highway at a fast clip (70+ mph, close to WOT) the bike will gradually lose power over the course of 3-5 seconds at which time it becomes a complete bog. Completely closing the throttle for moment corrects the problem and the bike cruises fine again. This issue didn't arise until I installed the programmer. I don't remember what settings I have it set at but I doubt its an issue with tuning.

Bump your fifth setting up to 6 or greater and it will fix this.

If you have good skill mechanically and are able to be creative if necessary, the Felco ebay pump or one from California Cycle Works may work for you. Both companies deal in quality goods.
I would confirm dimensions with them by email before purchase.
The Yamaha pump-pickup-regulator assembly was not designed to be taken apart, but it can be done if one is careful and patient.

Thanks, I levitated the fuel tank last night, didn't see anything obviously pinched or kinked or loose, though I pushed the vacuum line a bit further away from some hard parts between the tee and the line going to the pump. It does come close to the seat pan so I was very careful putting the seat back in, using a 100 lumen headlamp (!) to peer in there but again looked OK. Went on a night ride, warmed it up gently then blasted up a freeway onramp and it ran perfectly. 75 mph no problem, even with 13/50 and a D606.

Again, took it out for a 65 mile ride this morning and everything was just fine.



No way to tell at this point. I'm leaning towards skierd's theory of crud on the plug, or possibly the fuel pump needed to burp from being stood on it's head while I worked on the bike.

Or gremlins just having a little fun with me...

Probably next month I will try to fix my Fuel Pump, so if I fix it I'll let you know ....
I will spend 40$ for the felco fuel pump and if it doesn't work, then I will buy a Yamaha Fuel Pump..

I hereby submit my question to the collective wisdom of the megathread...

I have an '09 WR250x. I recently changed the oil and filter using Kawasaki S4 Synthetic 10W-40 oil like to this



Since that I have ridden ~ 1000km over the past weekend. All easy on secondary roads through NY and VT.

Now I'm finding that my clutch is occasionally super grabby. I'm used to the usual grabbiness but this is ridiculous and I've accidentally launched myself through intersections. The strange part is that this only happens 1 in 10 starts.

Also, I occasionally hear some noise/vibration from the engine when letting out the clutch but when I hear the noise is not when the clutch is grabby.

Any ideas? Change the oil brand? Run some sort of engine flush? Replace clutch plates?

Thanks for your feedback!
