Main & Pilot jets for XR650L

28 posts in this topic

Anyone have a good source to pick up a small assortment of Keihin main and pilot jets for a stock XR650L, 42.5mm diaphragm-type CV Keihin carburetor? I found a set of Mains in the TT catalog, but not a specific listing for the pilot (slow) jet for this model, I am carburatorally challanged, so keep the laughter to a minimum if this is a stupid question. I am planning on doing the carb mods as per Dave's directions, i just want a few sizes to play with. The local Honda dealership was less than interested in talking to me unless i wanted to purchase a whole new bike... and as i dont need THAT many spare parts...

You want the keihn 55 pilot (slow) and a 158 main. Try a diff. dealer even if they sell other brands of bikes, they can order anything. I got mine through the local yamaha shop.

thank you for the quick responses... but another dumb question follows:

How do i know which type or series are used in this thing? i cant seem to find an answer for that anywhere.

Call carbparts

Tell them you have a 650L and the right jets show up on your doorstep. :banghead:

I have an L also. I am running a 165/50 with a full WB pipe. These jets are pretty common and come in other carbs. I used the same Main in my XRL as I do in my KLX 650. The Pilots are different thought. Anyway go to a dirt bike shop or mom and pop place. They will have trays filled with all kinds or jets for ya.

I just went to one of the cycle shops and bought them piece. They cost like $4 and they should have them in stock. I have a 160 DynaJet in my carb now, but am going to switch it out with a 160 Keihin jet and a shimmed stock needle. A jet is too small a part to be worth the shipping associated.

Thank you everyone for the input, but i guess im going to have to yank them out and take them to a shop to physically match them up, because no-one at any local shop i stopped at can give me a straight answer as to what is actually in it (including 2 seperate Honda dealers). I get the same questions everywhere i go: Is the main a large or small round slotted, is the slow a series 21 or 22... If i was 100% positive of that, i wouldnt be asking them... doncha think? good gawd, these are service techs, THEY should have the books to tell ME what i need, I DID go there for help. Maybe i am nieve, but i would think a Honda dealership should have that information available. *shakes head in disgust*

*SIGH*

I havent had a chance to call Carbparts or SUDCO yet, maybe tomorrow night.

Thanks Shawn, I will call them when i get the chance, probably tonight. Unfortunately my bike is stored some 60+ miles from where i live, i wanted to have them in hand when i got there so i didnt have to drive to get them, drive back to buy a few, then drive back to install & tinker with them. I dont mind driving, but id rather be driving the bike.

If anyone is interested, i just got an email back from SUDCO , according to them

"Sudco wrote:

The Mains are the 393 series and the pilots are 26 series.

They are $4.45 each and sold separately. We sell and stock them in the range you requested.

Thanks, "

goblin, where did you get the 22 series number? i'm more inclined to believe someone here than i am some parts-weenie after my recent experience. are you sure that is a valid number? did you order any in that series? did they fit?
