1999 YZ250 Carb rebuild

I have a yz250 project I have just started. It has been sitting for about 10 years. It needs a lot of work.

It runs, but very little power. So a top end is probably in order. When it ran good it fouled plugs, bad. Every cold start it fouled a plug.

Anyways, I have been looking for a carb rebuild kit for it but cannot find one anywhere for the 1999. The 2000+ yz250s have a different part number for the carb. Not sure if the 2000 carb rebuild kit would work. I already have stock jets ordered. I figured to get it running right, I will start at stock and tweak the jetting as needed. I figure that sitting so long, new gaskets and orings wouldn't hurt. They are cheap as a kit, and expensive to buy separately oem.

If anyone knows where I can find a rebuild kit or of the 99 kit will work, please hook me up!

99 kits I have not seen. 200-2001, 2002-2006, 2007 up. Might need to get on the fiche and pic what you need.

Check the crank seals while you're at it, sitting for long periods dries them out, they crack, and eventually tear when the motor is run

I was thinking about those, a buddy of mine told me to run it first and see how it is

      Hey guys, I just picked up a running 03 yz125 a few weeks ago and upon tearing down the top end, I noticed the cylinder head looks a little beat up. Is it possible to just clean it up or am I better off just buying a new one? Thanks guys.

      Hey guys I just bought a bike last night. So the seller said the bike will turn on but then die. We didn't try it because it was really late at night and it was raining (seat was wet). But he said if you bump start it, it will turn on and ride. So what do you think the problem is? I just want to make sure it runs... I probably won't be able to bump start it till Saturday (rain)... It's a four stroke, and I know absolutely nothing about them. Thanks.

      Hey guys, 
      I've used this forum as a "guest" for awhile now and I thought I'd share my build now that it's all coming together.  The primary purpose of this project is to help me train for roadracing my 2009 R1 at lower speeds as well as giving me a cheap alternative to racing the big bike. 
      Here's what she looked like when I picked it up from a local shop.  Paid $800 cash for the bike as you see it with 17' rims, FMF pipe, EBC 250mm front rotor and clip on handle bars.

      Fits PERFECT!

      Shake down run at the Herrin Compound last summer:

      As she sits today:
