i wish i could be more of a help to you. maybe someone will chime in.
i was thinking you lived in denver colorado (your location below the avatar).

the fueling is probably off. if the idle is dropping down super low when you pull in the clutch to the point of it dying its probably not getting 1. enough gas or 2. enough air.

im betting on air.

i dont know if removing the airbox cover on a fuel injected bike would have any effect but ... try removing the cover and riding around to see if it has any effect on it. worth a shot at least.

Find the jd instructions (pretty sure they are on the jd website) and adjust the settings of the tuner. That is the beauty of that box' should clear up your issues.

I saw this happen on a buddy's 08' TE250. The fuel injection is not of the "battery less" type. It uses the battery as a filter for the alternator. If the battery is weak it can (and did) cause the symptoms that you are describing. Have your battery checked out with a load checker. Static voltage checks will not show you how healthy your battery is.

If you look over on the TE 610 thread (I got one of those too) there are several discussions about the crap batteries that came on those bikes (ask me how I know after a 40 mile tow behind my buddies Xchallenge in eastern Oregon). Good luck.

Essential Mods/Farkles: TE250 Dual Sport Trip

I bought this '07 TE 250 last year to go out to Colorado this summer and, wonder of wonders, it looks like it may actually happen! I've stripped the bike of road gear and have been riding it as a pure trail/enduro machine for about six months now and absolutely LOVE it. But, time to start getting her ready for the August week in Colorado. I've ordered a Nomadic rack and plan to mount an appropriate Pelican case and possibly a RotoPax 1Gal aux tank. I was wondering what other mods might be necessary for a largely dirt trip but with some road sections. I do need to put the signals back on and get it plated and I have a JD Jetting kit to experiment with. What else have the veterans found to be important mods for this bike on this kind of trip?

John

Alabama riding means mud, rocks, roots, leaves, creeks, hills, and the tightest, twistiest single-track you've ever seen, and we need the right machine for the job.

Nah, trucking the bike along with some riding buddies. Can't imagine riding that 1/4 liter bike a 1,000 miles but I guess people do it. But they don't do it with that seat.

Motorcyclewriter, instead of the Rotopax you might consider the IMS 3.8 gallon tank. I've had one for 4 years now with no issues. It allows an easy 150 mile range. The subframes on these bikes aren't the most robust. I added a JD jetting kit and a Power Now to the intake. It really helps the low end. Carry extra sprockets. A 15 will fit with the stock length chain. Sounds like a great trip.

I know this is ridiculous because none of us cares what our bikes look like, we're totally focused on utility. However, I wouldn't mind seeing a picture of your bike with the bigger tank since the IMS website decided to omit that piece of information... that I don't care about anyway.

Here is what the big tank looks like on the 250.

Passenger Footpegs on a TE250!!!

I know, I'd be insane to carry a passenger on a TE250, and I'd never think of it. But, the bike I bought used came with a brand new pair of passenger footpeg mounts that had never been installed. So... I they might be a great way to build up a rear rack that could carry some light panniers for my upcoming expedition to Colorado. I found a picture of how the left side mounts, but does anyone have a pic or know how the right side bolts up? I can always jury rig something but I'd like to see how the world-class engineers at Husky thought to do it. With a 310 kit and a 14, or maybe even a 15 tooth front sprocket, this bike might be a formidable dual sport machine.
