04 YZ85 Throttle Stop Screw setting

I'm rebuilding my carb and forgot to count the turns on the throttle stop screw before removing it. Can someone give me a basic on how to set it before kicking the bike over so I'm in the ball park?

With the Throttle stop screw removed, when you operate the throttle and let it "snap" shut, you will hear the throttle slide hit the bottom of the carb.

Keep turning the throttle stop screw in until the audible "snap" changes in tone, and you can actually feel the difference too, when the throttle slide bottom's out on the stop screw instead of the bottom of the carb.

as above, also easiest way is to start the bike, then adjust it until she idles and does not stall.

      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!

      I just did my valve adjustments and put my YZ250f back together as far as the valves, shims buckets and cam covers on but I need adhesive for the plastic valve/cam cover and I am stumped as far as what to use and where to get it or even what to call it! Need to get some soon im in need of a ride!

      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.
