Well it is a Tropical 60 degrees here in Houston Texas. Those spikes might help to give us traction on our tree roots. I wish it was cold!

Just got a 2011 250 six days late last month. I'm riding at 800-900 feet above sea level and the temperatures have been 15 to 30 degrees F. I left the pilot jet alone. Needle is in middle position. Put a 180 main jet in and turned the air screw about 2 1/4 out if I remember correctly. Bike runs perfect!

Here's a picture from New Year's Day 2008. This coming new year I'll do it on a GG. I love winter riding!

I love winter riding and stud my bikes up. For jetting, my rule of thumb is to go up 1 size on the pilot and 2 sizes on the main. I leave the needle and clip position alone.

It would be interesting to see if the 144 would work good in the snow. I remember having my 510 studded up last year and I was thankful for the extra Hp in the deep stuff.
My XC 300 is studded up but I haven't been out yet. It's warming up and maybe over Christmas

Happy Holidays everyone.
