1997 jtx 250 help

5 posts in this topic

Hi all, i need a little help my new to me gas gas jtx 250 as had a few minor problems. The throttle cable looked to be routed wrong running up the right hand side of the bike and out through the front of the frame with a big loop behind the number board. Can anyone please let know the correct throttle cable route.

Also should the correct spark plug should it be  a BPR5ES Or a BPR7ES as  im getting conflicting information and my old spark plug is unreadable.

 

\Thanks for any help in adavance

To the left[ if you are stood on the bike]  with the throttle cable and if you still have a big loop/excess then its the wrong throttle cable.

5 is the plug heat number as standard. iridium is best although a lot of people will say that there are no problems with a standard plug.

The stock plug is a #5 but if it fouls easily, go to a #7.  Its a good idea to carry a new,clean plug and wrench (spanner) to change it when it fouls.  Note I did not say if, but when.
