Hello, I have a 2006 YZ250F in which I'm pretty sure I need to clean/replace the pilot jet. I bought the bike last year and it ran pretty well. Fast forward to this year and I didn't properly store it for the winter so now the bike only idles with the choke. Without the choke, it used to idle for less than 10 seconds before dying. I tried to clean the pilot jet today but I couldn't see the pilot jet after taking off the fuel bowl because there wasn't a lot of space so I tried to clean it by sticking a wire through it. It helped and now my bike can idle without the choke but it is still pretty hesitant from 0 ~ 1/4 throttle. I'm fairly certain that the jet isn't completely cleaned. So my question is can I remove the pilot jet without removing the entire carb? I tried to rotate the carb towards me when I was working on it to help improve the visibility but I still couldn't see the pilot jet. I could stick my flathead in the hole and sometimes it seemed as if I had it placed correctly but I wasn't sure and I didn't want to risk stripping it or something. I couldn't rotate the carb more because something on the top of the carb (I think it may be the hot start) was hitting the frame. I really don't want to take the entire carb out to replace the pilot jet so can someone tell me how they do it? Thank you.
