Collecting the information for the upgrade
Inspired by the KLX330SM project I am upgrading my Kawasaki KLX250s. I found Bill Blues 351 big bore kit through several different forums and figure that one is the best bet. Now to make heads or tails of the rest of it is the objective of this blog.
The new KLX features include a 330cc kit from Kustom Kraft, Web-Cam Camshafts, Muzzys performance exhaust, Race Tech suspension, Accessories by Wheeling Cycle Supply, handlebars, grips and chain from ProTaper, carbon fiber from Light Speed Performance, sprockets from Sprocket Specialists, custom brake lines from Galfer, new pads from EBC Brakes, Bridgestone BT-090 tires from Motorcycle-Kart Tires, Techmounts, Slime tire protection and Motul lubricants.
Once you got the kit you don’t have to get all the parts listed like this guy talking about the TM36-68 carb.
I have the 330kit with a TM36-68 and I really like it. Pretty much a bolt in affair other than the throttle cables. Some have said that the stock cables (open only) would work mine did not. So I had some custom 4″ longer cables made locally for the carb I am currently using only the open cable. I am having Motion Pro make me 2 custom cables and I am going to use a Motion Pro throttle with the set up.
Main Jet: 130 (stock)
Pilot Jet: 17.5 (stock is a 12.5)
Needle Jet: P-4 (stock is a P-8)
Needle: 9EBY1-50 (stock is a 9DZH6-50)
Needle Clip: 3rd slot from top (middle position)
Fuel/Air Screw: 2 turns out
A/P Pump Timing: Starts at 1/8 throttle and stops at 3/4 throttle
A/P Squirter: Pointed directly at the needle (fuel should splash off the needle)
Airbox lid removed – K&N air filter
This is the jetting that I am using with the 330 kit, some guys from Suncup came up with this set up and my bike runs great with it!!

The free mods
remove air box lid, rejet the carb with a dyno jet kit, drill the slide in the carb, open the crank case vent, a 13t counter shaft.
He starts with the sprocket, fuel tanks and 2 service manuals! Then skid plates and radiator guards. The downloads section kick ass I mean I was unable to get so much info myself so he saves us a lot of work in this alone! Good man!
Then he goes on with carburetor removal and talks about how to rejet with parts! Invaluable IMO! And more mods!
Then he goes to exhaust! To save money he just used a klx 300 pipe I love the option!
