03 cr 125 bog?

i have an o3 cr125 that was previously raced and it has vforce reeds and pro circuit works pie with an fmf tc pipe ,i have the air screw at 1and a half out ,but thats not my problem ive tried all different airscrew settings and cant get the low end snap and im getting hesitation or a bog like response and when im going up steep hills it just stumbles and is gutless but on flat at high rpm she goes! any tips are needed thank.

has it ever ran correctly since youve owned it?

not as far as crisp off idle snap no. and also i had purchased two prox topend kits about a month back so its fresh id say 2-3 hours on it,fresh airfilter etc.

100% sure the power valve is working?

i just had the topend aprt and cleaned it very well but is it possible that it is sticking and i should yank it and soak it in cleaner overnight?and scrub the living hell out of it? and also the guy that raced the bike said it was jetted spot on and the float level is set really high. it does pour gas when tilted lightly:excuseme:

you need tomake sure its not stuck open and actually opens and closes when you rev the motor.

whats the best way to be able to tell after a pull out and clean,how will i know its doing its job and thanks for the help,does a high float level effect the performance really?

Lots of carbs have two screws for setting how the engine works at low and high RPM. Maybe your low RPM is a bit off? Check your manual or find the carbs manual online, it should indicate whether your carburetor has these settings or not and where to find them. Also, maybe your spark plug is a bit dirty or maybe you are leaking coolant into the cylinder (you should see lots of white smoke then)

no white smoke no other settings beside air and idle and plug is new.

Maybe you just need a new carb. Maybe the one you have right now is damadged and leaks more fuel into the cylinder. I don't know what else could it be...Doesn't sound like a compression problem :0

im hoping i'll tackle the issue today with a little time and clean it out good and see

im going to pull er apart and clean the crap out of everything again and try that and tinker a bit more with the ascrew and i ll let ya know?

      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!

      New spark plug, new air filter. Went for a ride and all was good. Hadn't run it in a week and a half. Now it won't start. Getting spark. The plug is dry. Is it possible I over oiled the filter and it has somehow gummed up the carb/ float? Thanks

      My 01' yz125 seems to be requiring a large amount of throttle to get off the line. I've ridden plenty of properly jetted 125's and none required quite so much throttle work from a dead stop. Even slipping the clutch it wont get going without a pretty healthy amount of throttle. Thinking it just needs a clutch rebuild kit and maybe a basket. Any info appreciated!
      If it helps any here is what it has done.
      FMF Fatty, VForce 3 reeds, and an iridium plug.

      Hey all, I just bought a street legal 2005 WR250F. Took it out once three weeks ago. Did about 60 miles on the dirt and 15 on the road, bike ran great. I took it out this past Sunday and was about 75 miles into my ride when the battery died. The battery is cheap, but it is brand new and was on a battery maintainer the whole time while it sat in the garage. I kick started it, and it fired right up. I was on the road for about 5-10 miles in fifth gear when I felt the bike slow down a little bit, and I noticed the sound coming from the bike sounded a bit deeper than usual. About a half mile later the bike started to bog down like it was out of gas. I filled the tank back up and experienced the same problem. The bike began to bog down, then puttered out like it was out of gas. Eventually the battery completely died and I was not even able to kick start it. I trailored it home, hooked it up to the maintainer, waited a couple hours, and the bike fired right up with the electric starter and the choke out. However, it was still puttering a lot when it was idling at this time. If anyone knows whats up, I would appreciate any and all help. Thank you. #Yamaha#wr250f

      I’ve got an old barn find ‘83 CR80R that needs either a new carb or a rebuild kit. I haven’t been able to find either anywhere. 
      Does anyone know where I can find either?
      housing, bowl and all the hard parts seem fine, if I can find a rebuild kit with a new float I think I’ll be ok. Right now it runs but only when I leave the choke on, smokes heavily and likes to bog down on takeoff
