Thanks for letting me join

New guy here from central PA. Just picked up an 87 250x. Starts right up and idles. Headlight flickers at idle. Get into the throttle and headlight dims to nothing and engine cuts out. It has an aftermarket led headlight wired direct to stator. Could the headlight be drawing to much?

Disconnect the headlight - the 250X does not have a charging system - most LED's need DC (a battery) to work - incandescent lights (what the machine was originally equipped with) will work on wither AC or DC - YES, the led could affect the ignition - if you disconnect it and it runs like it's supposed to, then its the cause - make sure it does not have an LED taillight also

Disconnected the light. No change. I have discovered that it runs great with no air filter.

If it runs without an air filter, it's jetted too rich - need a smaller main jet

Thanks for the advice. I have a little work to do on it. I got it cheap. It has a big bore kit and hot cam. I'll get the jets dialed in and go from there.

Dyno Jet has a good kit - myself, I just buy the individual jets I need - jet kits have an assortment of jets (and other parts you probably don't need) and you have to choose the ones to accomplish the job, but if you are looking for an assortment it's an excellent starter kit
