My SRX600 developed the same revving behavior shortly before I dismantled it for an engine overhaul (valve guide seals, 1st oversize piston, rod, bearings, etc). I was planning to worry about it when the bike is together again if the overhaul didn't help (probably wishful thinking on my thought). Your post got me wondering about the revving problem again, so I did some searching and found this post which might explain it.

Mine still has those same symptoms but to a lesser degree. Takes for ever to warm up, won't take throttle until fully warm etc.

5 turns on mix screw? Seems like a lot? My mix screw seems to have little to no effect, I suspect that circuit might be clogged so I'm considering an ultrasonic cleaning. Something to consider....

Thanks guys. Yes, the pilot screw doesn't seem to have much effect past 2 or 3 turns. I blasted out all of the passages in the carb though, they all seemed clear... In any case, I am pretty sure I am going to drop it off at a shop and have them figure it out. Riding season is starting!

I've had good luck cleaning my carburetors with an overnight soak in Yamaha Carb Cleaner/Dip. Be warned, it will soften (ruin) any o-rings that are left in it overnight. It's truly uniquely nasty smelling stuff.

Hey guys, update I got the SRX back from the shop. They rebuilt the carbs (again) and set all of the adjustments. One thing I noticed is they set the secondary to open very late. The bike runs better and is actually ride-able. There is still a stumble off idle even after the bike is warmed up. I am not really sure what is causing this. But I am happy to finally be riding.

Good news Brooklyn ......... I think?

Sounds like the late opening on the secondary might be compensating for the real problem though? Did they do an ultrasonic cleaning on the carbs?

I'm assuming you mean they open late compared to spec, right?

Anyway, glad you're riding

Yeah, the secondary adjustment screw is almost all of the way out. The shop is highly rated, however I am not sure the method they used to rebuild the carb. It is still not perfect, but I am not sure what else can be done.

Anyway, still a blast to ride. Could use a little more power ;)

Hi. Not sure if i missed it having a quick readthrough, but would like to know where you got the fron fairing and screen. Did you get it with the bike or obtain it new afterwards?

The faring and screen were factory partrs.

I updated the windscreen instructions recently. The updated version is now a proper document and can be found here.

As mentioned, US market got the fairing stock. They pop up on ebay every now and then. I'll be watching your thread Sir Blue!

Not much new to report on the 250, she's been riding it and it's been reliable, can't ask for much more!


Time for a new project though, I recently picked this up.....










Not sure what direction I'll go with it, maybe a rat-scrambler sorta thing? RD tank and spoked wheels are in it's future though.....

Hi Fleshpiston,

I think we're hearing the same siren. Here's my new project:



And another photo after replacing the rusty exhaust system with a Gary Hoos header and Harley muffler:



I've been thinking about wire wheels too. I have a set of R6 blue dot calipers and a second rotor for the front wheel. Don't know what I'm going to do yet for the seat and tank.

Perhaps it's time to start a SR500 thread here at advrider. FYI, sr500forum.com has lots of good info.

I forgot about this yesterday. Airtech sells both a half and a full fairing that'll fit the SRX250. If I I'm reading the price list correctly, the full faring is $318.14. Here's a pointer:

Nice! Yep, I think I'd feel right at home in your garage.

I was running an XS650 wheel with FZR discs and Grimeca calipers on my old one. The whole set-up weighed the same as the stock single caliper/disc.
