can't remember where i saw it (maybe RamZ) but 3 / 2.5 / 5 / 4.5 / 4 / 4.5 was the cal settings

Has there been any discussion regarding stalling recently? It would seem one of these numbers deals with idle and off idle fuel (based on a quick glance explaining which number is applicable to which carburetor mode "analogy"). Or is it still being attributed to alcohol in the fuel?

Just went to RamZ's site...he says: "I spent some time reading up on the EJK. There are six numbers you can change that determine where in the power band and to what extent jetting changes are made. These are well-explained in the paperwork that comes with the EJK and on their web site. The numbers that are preset in the EJK are 3 3 6 5 4 4.5 which I verified before the first ride."

You're welcome. You won't be sorry you decided to change your own tires. In addition to the convenience and cost savings, you will also increase your safety by changing your own tires. Every time I change a tire, I also inspect the following items. You can't trust a shop to take the time to do the following.

1) Inspect brake rotor or brake drum
2) Inspect inner tube
3) Inspect rim strip
4) Inspect rim of wheel
5) Inspect spoke nipples
6) Inspect, and tighten spokes
7) Inspect wheel hub
8) Inspect wheel bearings
9) Inspect sprocket

If I discover anything wrong with the wheel, I fix it immediately, before I re-install the wheel. You only have two wheels, and you can't afford to have problems with either. In addition, if you are riding in the wilderness, you need to know how to repair a flat tire by the side of the trail.

The tire changing stand you referred to is excellent. I also enjoy my tire changing stand, which you can buy for $85, delivered.

Similar deals are also available on eBay, and a variety of online vendors. A tire changing stand makes the job much easier, and is an excellent investment. Unless I am trailside, I will never again change a tire on my hands and knees.

I did see that 2nd set of number's on Ramz site ... they correlate to EJK's website ... as Rick says also.

I'd be interested in confirming that the first set you listed is really the setting when it comes from BDSB. If it is then the Acceleration, Full Throttle, and Idle Lower Switch Point are all lower in the BDSB version than the EJK version. If I understand this properly, the Accel and FT is slightly leaner in the BDSB and the 'green zone' (or Idle zone) begins lower also.

Does this make sense to y'all?

I might make sense if I went back and studied the presentation from Dobek. I went to Best Dirt Bike and found no cal numbers....am lost as to where I found 3-2.5-5-4.5-4-4.5

Went to Dobek, and they refer you to EJK. What they sell for CRF and CBR are Version 3 devices, and sure enough 336544.5 are the starting cal #. Oddly, for the CBR250R you can also buy Version 3.5 devices...and of course it has a very different set of numbers. Odd that the CBR has 2 choices of devices...and the CRF only one...whatever, I'm probably confused and am busy confusing others......

Stock EJK settings are 3 3 6 5 4 4.5. Dont know for BDSB, but it should be the same, i guess.

I previously gave a personal set (3 2.5 5 4.5 4 4.5 witch is become 2 2.5 5 ...), stated I installed a "db killer" of my own.

Values are based on personal feeling and carbon deposit at exhaust. Not to much scientifical, but seems to works well in my case. This can still evolve as im experimenting, but snow here dosent make tries easy.

Here's a picture of the mod (FMF Q4 spark arrestor turned into a db killer) that induced these changes.
Its really efficient : cruise is quiet, but roars pleasently on full throttle.

Krono / Ed ... thx for the replies. My goal is to confirm that BDSB has actually done some work to figure out what settings work with the FMF bits that they're selling. Their website references 'our base map'. Are the settings different than that sold by EJK?

On the other side of the coin, the EJK literature says that the settings are appropriate for 'typical stage 1 modifications'.

Maybe they worked together to determine the settings?

The settings that it came with are 3 3 6 5 4 4.5 I have not done any tweaking around with it, bike runs great.

Excellent, Sir! Thank you very much. EJK settings and BDSB settings appear to be equal. Decisions, decisions.

Isn't this the programmer that BDSB's sells? Apparently their FMF branded one is programmed the same as the one from Dobeck. I guess it's up to the individual to tweak it if so desired.

Well, to start with, being USD forks, something would have to fabricated. Lowest hard mounting point would be the bolts on the lower triple clamps, either eliminating, or go underneath the reflector bracket. Here are is some tie downs that use the mounting point I'm talking about, then go from there: http://www.manracks.com/#!product/zo...09044511/Honda CRF250L TieDowns,

Metal bark busters, TCI skidplate with engine guards, radiator guard, folding shift lever....

Am I ready to make my first real venture off road without worrying about trashing my new bike? The pics may look offroad....but its just broken pavement, dirt roads, gravel, etc...only played in the mud a little it and its quite different than what I am used to.

Dont give a shit about cosmetics. Just cant afford to trash my bike and render in unrideable

Im trying not to worry about hurting my bike, but I swear I cant get that feeling away that developed in my history of sportbikes "If it falls, kiss your bank account goodbye"

How durable are these bikes? Someone please, make my fear go away!

EDIT:

XMAS fun, cold day, short ride.
