    XT 250 exhaust and air box modifications

    Just bought a 2012 XT250 with 932 miles on it, However the guy said he drilled holes in the airbox tube before the air cleaner and the exhaust baffle, He said it made a power difference, I think I would have like it a little quieter, Im one of those people that dont think Im smarter than the engineers, Do you guys think he was right or should I weld the holes back shut and epoxy the holes in the air box intake to get it so it doesn't have the little pop when I let off the throttle.

    Get on Adventure rider XT-250 forum and you will get the help you need. If it has stock exhaust
    he did not need to cut the air box so plug and cover the holes.

    Congratulations.

    I don't know much about the XT250s other than I have never heard anything significantly bad about them. I am sure someone will reply to you.

    In the mean time, you might check this well respected forum for information: XT225+250 Rider's Group - Forums powered by UBB.threads™

    Here is a link to the extensive thread on the ADVrider forum that Zdiver mentioned: Where are your XT250's...let's see them. - ADVrider

    Does your 2012 have fuel injection, or did that come in 2013?
