Re-Jetting a VTR250

Discussion in 'Technical and Troubleshooting Torque' started by Arik, Apr 13, 2006.

  1. Anyone have any experience with getting the VTR250 re-jetted?
    Recently put a staintune system on mine and have an offer of cheap dyno and tuning time from a mate.
    Anyone know what difference in delivery a re-jet will make on the 250.
    (I know, bugger all...not worth the $ etc... lets just assume I'm captain moneybags)

    I couldn't find any kits on the net for the VTR so if anyone knows I'd love to hear from you

  2. When I had my VTR250, I was in the same boat and decided to leave the OEM jetting.
    You may pick up 1/2 a HP at the wheel if you're lucky.
    Get a K&N air filter before you decide what jets to get.
  3. Didn't rhink K&N made a replacement filter for the vtr250?
    ...that is not without savaging the airbox (which I'm not keen to do)

    DEafwish did you do the airbox mod?
  4. I did not do the 'airbox mod'.
    Without sounding rude, you are wasting your time and money.
    You won't notice the difference in power.
    The Staintune is good as it sounds great.
    Considered putting a BIG rear sprocket on it?

    Save your money for when you get a bigger bike. :wink:
  5. Don't worry about sounding rude, I appreciate your honesty.

    The only problem with the staintune is occasionally the revs will dive after a quick blip at the lights and she stalls. It has been re-tuned after the pipe went on but I was told a re-ject would sort this out and even out the power delivery.

    If the jets are cheap and the mechanic/dyno time free I thought It might be worth doing....

    no rush, I'm absolutely loving riding a bike with some growl!
  6. Jets cost bugger all so if the dyno and work is free, go for it.

    They're like a little hollow screw, worth maybe $5 each.
