Hey so I bought a klr 250 it's in decent shape, it runs ok but stalls when warm, I will be taking the carb out and cleaning it, new fluids and filters , plug. And eventually I will be attempting to check and adjust valves. I only done backyard riding on mini bikes and have ridden a klr around a yard years ago and have always wanted one. I want opinions and suggestions on mods to do eventually. Rejetting, airborne, full exhaust so throw em at me please I would appreciate it, I'll post pics when I have a chance. First mod to do is fuel filter

Welcome . The petcock has a screen on it for filtration . What I've read and found out the 250 Mohave share the same engine . I installed a set of Mohave grind cams made by Web cams . higher compression , bigger exhaust , open the air box lid , jetted the carb . I just finished installing a KLR 650 front suspension on it . I' looking forward to see the fruits of my efforts .

That's sounds like a really great project, can you post pics of the stroker exhaust, I want a big gun evo header but they are so expensive thanks for the reply man

Welcome to the club.! I just finished rebuilding my engine with the CWR 280 big bore piston, stage 3 ported and polished head, race inlet and exhaust valves with springs, straight through race exhaust back box, airbox mod and carb rejet, waiting to get the money together to get the high lift cams but the power improvement so far is great.
Front suspension was fully rebuilt and now has the Hagon full length progressive springs and the rear shock was custom made by Hagon for my weight and height. Now rides like it should.
When you clean your carb make sure you clean it really well and don't forget to make sure the pilot air jet and main air jet holes at the front of the carb are not blocked, the main air jet is like .5mm so you need a very fine wire to get in there. Sounds like your pilot mixture jet needs adjustment if its stalling hot, check your spark plug to see what colour the insulator is. Good luck.

I'd be glad to post pictures as soon as I figure out how to . I had to heat the header up to and bend it to make it fit it was made for KLX250 I thought it would bolt up . But I had to bend it in two different areas . One spot at the cylinder head and also just above the clutch cable area . I used a torch and heated it up cherry red and applied light pressure . I got lucky and didn't collapse the pipe . What a difference in the internal pipe diameter .
