2002 xv250 (SOLVED)

PostAuthor: rotormac » Thu Oct 29, 2020 2:43 pm

I just came in possession of a 2002 xv250. It's been sitting for a few years. I took the carb off to give it a cleaning and when I went to install it the boot coming out of the frame would not come down far enough to get the clamp on to fasten it to the carb. Sorry if this is a newb comment, but I figured there might be a trick to getting it on and I don't want to ruin the boot.

Howdy!

Welcome to VTF.

candidly I'm not familiar with xv250; however something that may help ---
here's a link to a post with a pdf service manual >>> viewtopic.php?f=6&t=56605

I moved this to XV250. Maybe the 250 crowd will pick up on it quicker.

as a help to others, please post what you did (or how you fixed it).

the 'next guy' to have-that-issue, and search-this-thread (and others) will appreciate it.

Instead of pushing the carb up into the boot. I removed the boot from the frame, attached it to the carb and shoved the whole assembly back into the frame.

Yeah rotormac, that seems to be the preferred method. Recently picked up a XV250 and started doing some work on it. Have taken the carb off few times using the 'push up and out' method listed in the service manual but taking the boot off looks like it would make it less of a 'man against machine' struggle!! Haha!
