I have seen some videos about the lectron with the metering fuel rod, it looks very cool.

It is very cool. Way too easy as well. The blokes who like to piss around with their jetting every ride will hate it.
"Set and forget" .

I have one on my 144AF and will be putting one on the 265.
Both bikes have a 7.4 litre tank so I don't actually have a choice . (7.4L is the largest OS tank avalible for the RMZ250's AFAIK).

I have a mate who owns an RM250. He stuck an OS tank on it. I told him he was mad, he just stuffed up those wicked RM 250 ergo's.
I suggested he get rid of the big tank and just get a Lectron. He was very sceptical.
He ended up taking my advice, bought the Lectron and gets better economy with the stock tank and Lectron than he did with the stock carby and OS tank.
And, as mentioned, the Kicker is, it eventually pays for itself .

I've done 4 hours ride time on my 144AF, while the other bikes were all running out of gas, I got back to the cars with a 1/4 tank. Being that I'm on a 144 I have to rev the bags out of it to keep pace with the larger bikes. No one revs their bike like I do. The blokes I was riding with were amazed with the fuel/gas economy.

had same thing on my PJ, got a new slide and it was slightly better, but no matter what you do it will be a pain to make it idle IF it ever does.

personally I gave up on this carb, next one will be a PWK, dynno about Lectron's as in my country there are no parts or anything in case I need something for it. though if you take the route to keep this original and use this carb make sure you get a slide with #6.0 cut away works crisper at low rpm.

Thanks for the input. Yes, I agree with you. I am going to go with a PWK.

I could do you a deal on the Carby from my 06 RM250 if you're Interested.

Same Carby "blackdiamond" put on his "Full Tilt" CR 250 build. He'll be selling the Ignition he used as well.

I know what you mean. I am moving to a new house at the end of the month, then I can go forward with the reassembly and we will see how it looks on the bike.

It is pinkish, but it is almost a perfect match to the nuclear red seat cover in the background. Yes, I think it needs some striping or a numbered background on top.

Real deal 94 plastic is supposed to be "Pinkish", that's why it matches your
seat cover so well. Honda didn't change to the more Red plastic until 96 and
even more Red in 2000. If you need to sport a number, get a White number
plate background and trim off the portion that would cover the perforated
section. Then apply a contrasting number over the entire surface. The
small amount of the perforation the number would cover won't negatively
affect the air flow.

For your purposes (Hare scrambles), that front plate will be a good idea since
you're likely to be caked on with mud and going slow through technical
sections - a real challenge for your cooling system to keep up. it may not be
pretty or even cool, but it is functional.

Thanks Dogger,I didn't think about the contrasting number, that sounds like a very good idea. I only need a wossner B piston and Oem crank then I can ressa

Thanks Dogger,I didn't think about the contrasting number, that sounds like a very good idea. I only need a wossner B piston and Oem crank then I can start reassembly. I need a new or very nice 92-96 head. My 94 head has some damage in the squish area from a broken piston skirt. Anybody got one?

Talking

It has been a while since my last post. I have been able to move back home to Tennessee and into a bigger house. The move put the CR on hold for a bit but now I am working on it again. I just got the hubs and shock spring back from powder coating.







---------- Post added at 11:34 AM ---------- Previous post was at 11:28 AM ----------

I picked up a powder coated wire mesh shelf system from Home Depot. The entire second shelf is 94 CR 250 parts. No, the Tonka Truck is not for sale.




---------- Post added at 11:41 AM ---------- Previous post was at 11:34 AM ----------

I have new Honda cases and a new Honda cylinder. I wanted to send them to Pro Circuit to have them matched unless there is a local option. Does anyone know a reliable shop in the Nashville area?

---------- Post added at 11:57 AM ---------- Previous post was at 11:41 AM ----------

I almost forgot, the new garage beer fridge.

I bought mine off Ebay, it came from Thailand. The cover was a little hard to fit and I think the rear Honda logo on top of the seat could have been too far from the rear edge of the seat but otherwise I am really happy with it.

Here is the link for the nuclear red plastics.

TUF Racing - UFO Plastic USA

I just received a 96 Cr polisport full plastic kit yesterday. I was surprised that the polisport red fenders were almost exactly nuclear red as well. I will try to post some pictures tomorrow.
