    what do you call a governor because that is the idea i'm looking at but it has to pass an engineers inspection to enable my daughter to ride it on her provisional licence. I was thinking it would entail re-jetting the carbs but i required jet sizes to limit to 25kW and then how to calculate the power output.

    cheers

    clarification for DCF. as I said I need to resrict the power output at the back wheel in an appropriate manner which would satisfy the necessary legislation and get us a certificate of proof by a registered Motor Vehicle Engineer. I have a feeling that theres a lot more to it than just limiting the throttle movement but am not sure hence the call for help.



    thanks

    Restricting it in what way? Adjustment so the throttle does not open all the way is probably the easiest.

Mileage problem


Hi Patrick, you can start by going to smaller main jets untill you notice poor performance then go up one size, and the usual suspects are:
1. Excessive use of enrichner system.
2. Enrichner valve not seated or leaking
3. Dirty air cleaner element.
4. Restricted fuel tank vent system.
5. High speed riding style.
6. Idle speed improperly adjusted.
7. Loose jets.
8. Float level too high.
9. Plugged or restricted bowl vent.
10. Worn or damaged needle or needle jet.
11. Vacuum piston assembly malfunction.
12. Plugged air jets or passages.
13. Excessive accelerator pump output.
Good luck and have nice day.

Hi, I have just purchased a 2009 KLX250s and find that it has will not go any higher than 6000rpm in 6th and only reaches 95-105km. I have been told that it needs derestricting, how can i tell if this has...


Hi i will give my thoughts about this some way of restricting performance can be done in the exhaust system, other areas of restricting revs are electronic
settings rev limiter. reprogram via software and pc.

My Zeph an imported bike will not rev above 7000 rpm Would it be restricted?


If the bike came from the UK then most likely the power was limited, its usually just a throttle stop, look down where the cables hook up.

the stats are nice for a small bike, id suggest jetting the bike, it will not be difficult and is extremely effective, checkout dynojet kits just go to Google type in dynojet kit see if you can contact them and ask about a kit for your make and model. they might be able to figureout the kit that will work with your engines displacement 150 cc. id throw a aftermarket exhaust system on their, this will lower backpreashure and restrictions of exhust gasses, as well as remove the limatations they put on eom pipes.

More confident


but not for much longer. Can anyone tell me what's involved in a license in GA? Also can anyone tell me about painting a bike? It's probably the same as my situation in Pennsylvania--with a learner's permist one cannot ride after sundown or carry passengers. There are no other restrictions.,,,
