Default Keihin pwk carb on an 01

     

i have been reading on this, and thinking i want to get one for my 01....on service hondas website they have a carb assembly, and also an "optional" carb assembly...could someone explain the differinces to me and which one i want?

oh, and im pretty sure, but it is a direct bolt up right? no other changes or mods needed? new cable or intake boots or anything..thanks..

Order part #16100-KZ3-J21 That is the carburetor you want for your
conversion. The "carburetor optional kit" listing is for different jets,
needles, etc.

Pretty much. The only significant difference is the depth of the PWK
compared to the TMX which makes it a tight fit between the intake
boot and airbox inlet.

IMHO the 1999 CR250 carb is your best bet. It uses a more 'standard' needle profile (R1370D). This needle is closer to what a stock bike likes and is a better needle profile to start jetting from IMHO. Part No. 16100-KZ3-J11.

The needle that came in the 2000 is a mess (A715/289R/A327/A487) and the only optional needles are from Honda and they only come with different straight sections, or needle diameters, which can limit tuning.

thanks dogger, that is what i was wanting to know..

faded..suppose i got a 2000 carb, could i just swap out the needle for the one your talking? or is it a diff carb in general? i did some reading on the swap and everyone said go with the 2000....not discrediting what you are saying, thats why i was wondering if that needle could be switched in if fine tuning was needing, or if your just suggesting a totally diff setup that i hadnt heard about yet? thanks for the info

my motor is stock as far as i know, other than a procircuit pipe..

Same exact carb for both years except the '99 has an "A" stamped in it's serial no. vs. the "B" found on the '00...oh, and the needle that I mentioned.

I started researching this swap in the fall of 2003. I made the swap in 2004. If you read back far enough on this swap you'll probably see my name quite a bit. Heck, even I use to recommend the '00 carb until 2005 when I was helping a buddy with the swap and I discovered that the '99 came with the exact same carb only with better jetting and a needle that worked!!

The needle that comes in the '99 has readily available specs published. This gives you a documented starting point AND needle dimensions. Why do you need this? Well, if this needles isn't THE ONE, this can allow you to compare it to other needles. Also you can compare it to Keihin needles (three letter code needles) that you can experiment with for cheap (around $4-$5 ea). Also, Honda offered optional needles that came with different tapers AND with different straight sections...you can't say that about the needle that came in the 2000. And as far as getting needle dimensions on that needle it's not going to happen unless you have access to finite measuring equipment or a budget to pay people to do it. In the end you still have a so-so needle with half-a-dozen options vs. the '99 needle that has easily 10 times the options.

Most of the time the stock '99 needle is good enough out of the box for most people most of the time, FWIW. Of all the people I've read about and helped with the swap there have been very, very few that have kept the '00 needle...like 2 that I can recall.

And the '99 carb is $3 cheaper! As usual, excellent
information from Faded - info I didn't realize (boutique
jet needles), but will definitely keep in mind for future
projects. Many thanks.

If you have already purchased the '00 carburetor, simply
swap the needle and jets to this for a baseline: 178 main,
1370 needle, 2nd clip and a 45 pilot. If you haven't ordered
the carb, go for the '99 instead - at least the correct needle
is already there. The $3 plus $15 (needle) savings should just
about cover shipping.

Service prices: $168 for the '99, $171 for the '00.
Shipping runs $10 to $15 depending on where you
live.

Dogger, do you know what if any other than stock carb is preferred on the 02?
I know the 02 has jetting issues, just wanted to know if there was a better carb that would work on the bike. Thanks

I'm not Dogger, but I have put the same 1999 CR250 (Part No. 16100-KZ3-J11) carb that we're talking about on my '02 CR250 back in the day. I went the rounds with the stock Mikuni and when it was done I owned every optional needle Honda made. I could get the jetting just right on any given day with some time, but the problem was that the Mikuni is (IMHO) overly sensitive and after riding a bit the jetting would be 'off'. The weather would change, or your ride would take you up/down a couple hundred feet and the Mikuni could tell.

The Keihin fixed the problems (for me), was easier to jet and ran cleaner and more consistent. There are probably two good choices for a guy like you; 1) Try the JD Jetting needles. If one works and you're happy, hooray. If not, send it back and get a refund and put it toward the Keihin swap. This is just based on my experience...

EDIT: BTW, peaked at your post on your rebuild and it looks like it's really coming together, Props!
