Has anyone tried a jetting kit?

Hi there,

 

Has anyone tried one of these kits?

https://www.ebay.ie/itm/Yamaha-TTR250-TT-R-250R-TTR-250-cc-R250-Raid-Carburetor-Carb-Stage-1-3-Jet-Kit-/332032207413

Thanks

The Sigma kit seems a bit like snake oil to me Dan confuse

See https://ttr250.activeboard.com/t56757791/sigma6-jet-kit/

In terms of re-jetting your carb, you only need to think about replacing either the pilot or main jet or both.

If Yamaha no longer supply the size of jet you need for your engine and you can't get a used spare then it may be worth considering using carb jet drill bits or buy a kit like this https://www.amazon.co.uk/KESOTO-Carburetor-Motorcycle-Accessories-Replacement/dp/B07H3YHX3T/ref=sr_1_8?keywords=CARBURETOR+JET+DRILLS&qid=1578870294&s=automotive&sr=1-8

Jets R Us supplies most of the jets we need.  https://www.jetsrus.com/customer_service/shipping_fee_international.html

Maybe the Totally TTR's store can stock a bunch of the commonly used jets.

They currently do not ship to the UK but probably would make an exception for Totally TTR's purchases.

Thanks Jeff - that's useful - I see they sell a 55 pilot which Dan may be keen to try wink

https://www.jetsrus.com/a_jets_by_carburetor_type/a_jet_kits_teikei_selection.html

Sadly the main UK parts supplier now only supplies #147 main and #50 pilot jets no

Steve at Totally TTRs does offer a slightly wider range - see http://totallyttrs.com/epages/699105d9-e4cc-4b32-b236-84e72cd67f84.sf/en_GB/?ObjectID=1655063&ViewAction=FacetedSearchProducts&SearchString=jet&SearchButton=

There are TK jets on ebay for absurdly cheap. From China, of course.

I bought pilots & mains and measured everything with check pins in comparison to the stock jets. Don't have the numbers on hand but can post them later if anyone is interested. All sizes pinned correct in regards to flow orifice.

Overall very close dimensionally and the quality appears surprisingly good. I looked at all jets w/magnification and no burrs or anything suspect.

Yet to run them but just re-jetted/refreshed a carb and it will be back on the bike in a week or so.

Search "TK jet" and they should pop up.

That is really good information - thanks for posting it up biggrin

I am sure that we would be very interested in the numbers if you can post them up please.

Brian

PS Just to show my ignorance - what are "check pins" and where do you get them please? Google wasn't helpful no

Well done Martyn! Orifice checker eh???

Does it go down small enough to check pilot jets though?

check pins aka gage pins. generally in .001" increments, also come in .0001" sizes.

I work as a machinist and have access to full sets. They go down to literally a hair size above zero.

Will post up numbers this evening.

For the mains I've got 132 through 148, skipping 137 since that is the stock size in the US bikes.

The labeled sizing numbers are mm - as in a 132 jet is 1.32mm which is .0519".  All of them pinned correctly to 3 decimal places. I didn't get nuts checking them to the 4th place.

See the bore of the upside down main jet in the above pic?

Stock main is .103" diameter and .118" deep. The ebay mains are .098" with the .099" pin partially starting. This equates to about 3mm. They are .136" deep.

How this difference will affect performance I have no idea.

Pilots are sized same way: 50 is .5mm = .0196. I've got a 50, 52 & 55. Again only checked to 3 decimal places. Using pins, 50=.019", 52=.020", 55=.021".   

The hole at the screwdriver slot end measured .050" stock pilot & .051" ebay pilots. I neglected to check that depth.

From the other end(side w/the little holes), bore of the stock jet is .059" & depth is .438". The small holes along the side are .031".

Ebay 50 & 52 pinned .075" dia & .454" depth while the 55 pinned .076". Side holes are .030" and there are 2 additional holes vs stock.

Hopefully this makes sense!

No problem, glad I could contribute something useful.

If there are jets from other brands people are interested in, I could get them and measure for comparison.

So can we assume that the Teikei jet sizes are the same as Mikuni?

Will see if I can find out my local bike shop ordered jets for mine with out any hassle didn't check where they were from. Ended up going back to the standard main and up one size on the pilot 

Will drop in and ask next time I'm going past
