Bogging/Sputtering Problem

While out riding yesterday, my xr250 was running great except when I was hitting the jumps. Approach was fine then I would hit the jump, land and the bike would sputter out for a second or two and then all was fine again. Any ideas on what to check ?

Then listen to what Gus said. Also , did you do any of the improvement mods for the carb ? If not , then you can do all of it at once.


It's possible there is a loose wire , but my guess would be carb.

Check the front fender. Just check it! Trust me! If it looks fine, it is probably carb related.

I thought it was the rear fender, but then again what do I know as I'm a Spandex Homo now...

No...I think its the Flaggilator valve....or the turn signal fluid might be low. The fluid has a float in it that acts as a tipover switch...once it gets too low it will make the bike cut out.

At least that's what Stanimal told me once
