Brent, all the 250R's were 34MM stock. I think I gave you jet sizes to start out with in a previous post. As for the size of yours, you'll have to measure the ID of the intake side to determine what size it is. Honda did use a round slide Keihin on 250R's, but that was on the '85 ATC250R, all 86's three and four wheelers were PJ oval slides. And yes, on a machine equipped with a stock carb, the cap and throttle cable are all one piece, and probably won't fit an oversize carb.
