The screws ARE questionable. Replace them with SS allens.
howdy, hey would you mind p.m your website so could take a look at your products. i would really like to upgrade all my lights something brighter and better than what my STOCK BIKE has. i hate riding at night by candle power.
You have the wrong rear sprocket. You should return it and get the right one. There are aftermarket sprockets with the correct offset. I use the Parts Unlimited brand, they are inexpensive.
Thanks. In someone else's shoes I'd leave the bike torn down and return the sprocket. Instead of waiting for another brown truck the bike crossed three state lines. They can't refund lost days of my life!
I have a 2005 XT225 Cdn model. It came with a 120 main jet. I went to a 130. Much better for me. Sea level to about 5000 feet. I did open up the airbox and muffler. Shim under the needle and three turns out on the idle screw. Its the way it should have been from the factory.
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?
15 front, 45 rear
lots go to a 16 front , i did, and like it better for the street. takes about 15mins to swap. i've gone with bigger tires now tho so i might go back down to 15
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
Tom S, shims are .5mm or just a hair under .02”, (0.01968498”, thick.
This from the ANSI site: American National Standard ( ANSI)
Spenard (SBS) has a pretty good assortment in their bins. They don't have the impressive orange vests but are worth a try.

Anybody offhand know the diameter in mm of the front and rear axles?
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.
PNW wrote: A small diameter hose that runs from a small plastic elbow from the left side of the carb near where the fuel hose attaches to the carb broke off with the tiny plastic nipple in the hose, it must have been very brittle as I didn’t realize that I even bumped it at all. 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.)
