2006 Suzuki LT-Z250 QuadSport Z Rev Limited?

Recommended Posts

The bike starts right up every time, and sounds great, on flat ground it seems a little under powered, but just going up hills on just forest service roads really slows it down. I know it's only a 250 and I am too big to be riding my wifes bike. Were these bikes limited by the factory?

I picked up this bike from a family member who purchased it new, then let it sit for most of the last 13 years. It has less than 15 - 20 hours on it. I thought this would be a good first bike for my wife, and so far it is, so loves it. 

The first thing I did when I got it was clean the jets on the carb, not knowing what I was doing I am sure I missed other things to look at when I had the carb out. After figuring out how to properly service this carb I plan to pull it again, and give it a more thorough cleaning. Before taking it apart again, I wanted to know what else I should do. 

I did a little research and guys talked about mods to the air intake and and unplugging the exhaust... What's that mean....

I would prefer not to have to purchase a whole new exhaust.

I wouldn't mind installing a little bigger jets, but who is a reputable aftermarket? 

I'm not looking for a race bike, but it just seems like it should have a little more zip.

Hey mike. 

That bike should have plenty of power for your wife and for you! My guess is it’s just a matter of cleaning the carburetor better and tuning it the right way. I would do that and double check the air intake box for any nests or behaves or blockages.  As far as the exhaust I’m assuming it’s clear and nothing is obstructing it.  

Get yourself a good can of carb cleaner with red tube on the nozzle to get inside the small holes. A can of compressed air with the same red tube and a set of cleaning tips from amazon.  

Remove the carburetor and set yourself up a nice clean area to work. Take it all apart and take your time. Ask as many questions as you want and post pics if need be.  

Once that’s all done and you dial in that air/fuel screw my guess is that she will run like a champ! 

When it comes time to dial in the air/fuel screw let us know. Talk you right trough it. 

Throw a fresh spark plug in as well.   

No need for adding a better exhaust, re-jetting etc.

      This week, the Department of Conservation and Natural Resources (DCNR) plans to outline proposed policy changes for ATV trails on state forest lands.  They will also be seeking public comment.
      Pennsylvania has more than 260 miles of ATV trails in state forests. The department is reviewing its policy to respond to increasing demands for riding opportunities and well as interest from local governments in expanding tourism.
      “The purpose of the policy is to provide guidance to DCNR when acquiring, developing and managing lands for ATV use by the public,” Secretary Cindy Adams Dunn said.
      There had been a moratorium on new trail development, but the policy revisions now authorize DCNR to consider new ATV trails and connectors on state forest lands.
      “New ATV trails will be considered, while still balancing the protection of natural resources as outlined in the Environmental Rights Amendment to the Pennsylvania Constitution, and the needs of all types of recreational users on DCNR lands,” Dunn said.
      In a 2016 survey of ATV users, more than 4,800 responded with many indicating a strong desire for more long-distance trails. Pennsylvania has around 285,000 registered ATVs. On state forest lands, ATV riding is allowed only on designated trails.
      Public comment will be taken at a meeting in Harrisburg Wednesday, January 22, from 10 a.m. to noon in Room 105 of the Rachel Carson State Office Building. Written comments can be submitted to [email protected]
      The deadline to submit comments is March 27.
      More information about ATV riding is on the DCNR website.

      Hi there
      I am in need of a manual for my KLF 300 Bayou 4x2 . I've found others on here for the 4x4 model, but was wondering if I need a separate 4x2 manual. Does anyone know?
