Yz250 97

Hiya I recently bought a yz250 97 which needs a top end rebuild, but I took the barrel to be bored out as it had a steel liner and they said the liner was on it limit, so now I need to buy a barrel, so if anyone could help I'm in the newt west England and need a barrel 94-98 cheers

The first thing I'd suggest is to get another opinion from another shop.  You never know if they had ulterior motives in telling you it needs a new cylinder.  If you really have to get another, ebay is probably your best bet unless you have other used parts sources where you are.  I guess worst case for you is if you HAVE TO buy a new one.  You could get a new one from Partzilla for about $340.  But then there's all the other parts you need too.  It's gonna get kind of expensive before you're done.

What he said. Plus since it has a sleeve it is not "plateable." So I see two options with in the same element. Buy a new or re plated cylinder, or buy a new sleeve for that bike and have the new sleeve pressed into your existing cylinder. Your cylinder will not qualify as a core.

      A tiny clear rubber tube on bottom of carb.  On bottom sort of on side, by floats, the other end just hanging down.  Was it always like this? Or does the other end go somewhere?  Today after multiple trys with kick, choke on/off ,,,fuel keeps pouring out the tube.  This bike has always been hard to start.   Thanx  guys!

      Hey guys, I bought this YZ85 and came to realise the clutch wasnt working, so I drained the oil (Jet black) and pulled the plates out and cleaned them. I assumed finding a torque wrench would be easier than it has been. Does anyone know how to torque the clutch springs to spec without a wrench? Any insight helps.
