more sr250 parts!

well ok, just one new part. the vm32 came yesterday! it’s a super rad little carb. screw top and main jet access on the bottom of the float bowl’s going to make it a cinch to tune, too!

probably the best part is that it fits right on to the stock intake manifold, which is still nice and supple after all these years.

the only thing really holding me back from throwing this bike together with what i’ve got and riding it around is my wheel situation. i really want to go 18’s front and rear, but rims are so expensive. i think i might be better off scouring ebay for 36 hole dirt bike rear wheels that aren’t totally beat and re-purposing the rims, you can usually pick one up for around $50. that’s like half the price of a single aftermarket rim.
actually, i think i might do that. i’m trying to keep the total price of this bike under $1000. original purchase price, all parts, paint, reg, everything. i’m totally on track to making my goal, but i gotta be careful and buy cheap everywhere i can!

    Hey what throttle cable did you use for that carb and throttle ? I need a new carb and I’m thinking that 32vm carb looks great was it as easy to tune as you expected?

      sorry i didn’t get back to you sooner! i haven’t gotten that far into this project yet. i have a ton of bikes right now and i need to just pick one and move forward with it. i think i’ll probably be dragging the sr out and getting it on the road soonish, so i’ll be able to answer your questions then.

    I have an sr and have been following you. THanks,
    So should a vm32 work just fine and bolt right on to mine as well.
    Have been doing alot of searchimg and just needed to ask for sure.

      the carb bolts right up, yeah! i have not given my poor sr any attention in a long, long time, but i do plan on pulling it out soon and getting back to work on it.
      once i have it back on my lift, i’ll be figuring out what jetting works best.

    Thanks for the big help terry.
    I will get myself a vm32 and stand by for your next piece on the sr.

    How did the VM32 carb go? I’m thinking of buying one. Is that the only number needed for proper ordering? What ended up being your jet settings?

      Haha, I still haven’t gotten around to this thing! I moved three times since starting the SR250 project, and have finally landed in a place where I have space to work on it. I should hopefully put an end to that project soon, and when I do I’ll post about it for sure!
