Shift forks on a 96 YZ250?

Has anyone ever replaced shift forks on their bike? I just picked up a YZ250 today for a cheap price knowing that it needs new shift forks. The owner said one was bent and wanted to see what I was in for. This is my first dirtbike EVER that I've owned. Have a few ATV's and thought a little project will be nice. I plan to order a repair manual from Clymer to help out a bit. How hard was it and is it pretty straight forward? Thanks!  :ride:

You will have to split the cases but it will be easy with the manual.

I'm guessing a case splitting tool will be much easier then trying to mess around with it with a putty type knife?

      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.
