A thread like this exists over in the YZ/WR 250F forum, and I thought it would be nice to have one here. Here is the template:

Model Year:
Main jet:
Pilot Jet:
Leak Jet:
Fuel screw (turns out):
Needle model/Clip position:
Airbox mods:
Pipe:
Altitude where you ride:
Temperature where you ride:
Other mods:
Degree of satisfaction:

Try not to fill the thread with other topics. Jetting questions should probably be directed to the Jetting forum. This will help make jetting searches more productive. So go ahead and post your specs!!
Mod: Sticky?

What size pilot is in it to start with? I can't remember which adjustable leak jet says to remove the leak jet completely. It might be the merge. I don't know much about the JD jetting kit, but the 190 is really rich. I can get them to run real strong without the JD jetting kit and just playing with the stock set up with the addition of the adjustable leak jet. How far in do you have the screw turned in on the adj leak jet? I know on my kids 08, it's almost all the way in. His has the R&D adjustable leak jet with a 42 pilot and a 172 main. Needle in the 3rd position and who knows how far the mixture screw is out. It runs hard!
Also, is there any other work done to it like head porting?

2007 CRF250R

Main: 178
Pilot: 42
Leak: 50
Fuel: 2 1/4
AP timed to squirt just as throttle plate clears the stream.

Stock compression, stock exhaust (fresh repack), stock intake, Twin Air filter. Stock valves, set correctly.

Elevation 750 meters, Temperature avg 10-20 degrees C. Alberta, Canada

Varying terrain. Bush roads, single track, prairie, mountains, sand, dirt, hard pack.

This bike had a severe lean bog issue. Would flame out if you twisted the throttle any amount from low RPM or idle if it wasn't done relatively slowly. Cleaned carb, checked seals and AP diaphragm, all ok. Had to dig deeper.

Since tuning the AP timing and leak jet the bog is completely gone. Squirt duration of the AP on the bench was .10 seconds with stock #70 leak jet and started too late. Duration is now .25 seconds with #50 leak jet and starts as soon as throttle plate clears the stream.

Smooth acceleration, pulls strong through RPM range. Slight popping on deceleration from high RPM's. Rides well in all terrain.

Header pipe does not glow when sitting and idling.
