WTT: Lectron for stock carburetor- 2006 yz250
« on: February 25, 2018, 09:02:03 PM »
I recently picked up a 2006 yz250 that came with a Lectron carburetor on it. I read up on these and it looks like they are a must have for off road/mountain riders, but I know nothing about them, how to tune one, or how to troubleshoot one.

Anyone have a stock 2006 yz250 2T carb they would want to trade?

Can text pictures to anyone interested

Just curious have you riden the bike with it on?  Have you been to their website?  Just google it, they are very simple to to tune.  I'd call them and tell them what carb you have and ask how it should be set up to see if yours if set up correctly.  All the turning is by adjusting the needle no jets to mess with, very simple. Never have to dig into the carb or carry a bunch of jets and needles around.  Closest thing to having fuel injection, you don't have to worry about the temperture. humidity or altitude it compensates for the changes by the unique way the needle works.

I have one on my 2017 KTM 150 I told them what bike I had and they sent the carb already set up.  I have not needed to touch it since I put it on 9 months ago. It works perfectly never a bog or blubbering, just pulls from the bottom to the top without hesitation.  I'd keep it unless you like changing jets, needles and adjusting the air screw

I have also heard good things about their support. They will send you a 'set it and forget it' jetting setup.

So have you had time to dial it in? I've heard great things about the Lectron like 2 HP gain over the stock carburetor

As I started checking things out, the engine needs to be rebuilt.. unfortunately the previous owner did not know/inform me the power valve was broken,water pump is toast and the Piston has more wear than I feel comfortable with as well. Havenít ridden the bike yet. Still saving up to order all the parts I need for top and bottom end rebuild. Going to be a while until I get a ride repot on it.
