Welcome to the forum! If you haven't changed the stock intake tube, you won't need a fuel controller until you do, even with the pipe. FCI (the best IMO) velocity or fuel atv are all good intakes.

Quad-tech is a lot better seat as well. Any questions, just ask, there's a lot of good people on here willing to help with what they can.

hey man thanks for the info..was looking at the air intake today..man its like a snake..i have built enough machines to see that needs to be changed...lol i got a brand new hmf performance pipe and fuel optimizer for $300.00 so i couldn't pass it up..was sitting at a shop for awile someone ordered it and never came back.. the bike has a uni filter on it and the baffle was taken out...missing.. so new pipe will be put on soon. so the optimizer really wont change anything till i change the air flow..what about with lid off the box and a k&n..?

Welcome!

No the k&n and lid off won't change a thing lol. You need to replace the whole intake tube. Once you do you will see massive gains! Pick up a Fuel customs intake (FCI) they are a bit pricey but worth every penny.

A better seat is always nice, but hardcore 450 riders don't sit much anyway. Lol!!! ;)

Yea i would definitely go with the fci 152 is a steal and with the hmf you will make dam good power. The houser +2 stem with antivibe clamps are a god send. Oh and i also have parts for your 250r&x if you need them. I got two complete bikes as well as the atv version of each. Welcome to the forum.
