06 kx250F Top end PRoblem

Hey guys, i recently bought an 06 kx250F and i ran into a new problem.. when i get on the throttle , towards the top end of the bike it kinda gives off and sounds like the bikes struggling a bit.. like a choking sound, the power all the way up to the higher rpms is fine but there's definetely something wrong. Could it be the top end? or maybe just adjustments to the carb or valves?

so everything fine until wide open throttle you say?

If so check you main jet, someone could have jetted it and i tbe wrong, the only time the main jet comes into play is WOT, all before that its about needle setting and pilot jet.

i would also recomend checking your valve clearances to know there in good shape

Ok, il go check the main jettin, but im new to the four stroke, so il take it a part and post the size of the jet and ask if i should increase or decrease its size.

182 is stock

okay, can someone send me info reguarding how to check the needle on the carb and clean everything out,,

take the carb out, take the top cover and bowl off, take the needle out with the allen bolt, and take the jets out with a 6mm wrench and a flat head screwdriver. get some brake or carb cleaner, some compressed air, and you;ll be all set.

Cleaning my carb is on the agenda for tonight.. i'll take some pics and do a quick write-up if you want.

Check the plug gap. Its quick and easy. My bike had some issues at low rpm when the plug gap was tight.

Yeah if you could take pics of you doing it that would be cool,, dont want to mess anything up worse than it already is

      Alright so I just rebuilt my 2012 kx250f complete rebuild. I put the motor back in the bike get everything hooked up and ready to go it takes a few kicks at first (obviously) but after it starts it sat and idled just fine for a while then it stalled out. Tried to start it again wouldn't start I took the spark plug out of it it looked good I was dark and wet. I cleaned it then put the spark plug back in it it took a few kicks but started right back up again then after a while it stalled out again and now I can't get it to start again!? Any help would be greatly appreciated thank you guys and girls for reading and hopefully for the help!!!

      As close to new as I'd imagine you'd get! I bought the bike brand new, I'm older and have taken extremely good care of this bike. Very little use and is COMPLETELY stock - everything is original. 
      Comes with the title, original book and map couplers for the fuel injection.
      $4700 - cash

      Time for a top end on my bike, just wondering if there are any alternative Valve springs i can use. I have PC cams and $400 for just the springs and retainers is alil costly at the moment.
      This has been fun in other sections of TT, so I'll start the thread here and see if we can keep it going.
      Let us know what kind of mods, fixes, changes, etc.., you performed today, or just general fun you had with, your KX250F.
      I'll start with.. I installed a correct for my weight Race Tech shock spring, along with a Pivot Works shock spring thrust bearing. Also cleaned out all the nasty yellow plastic/wax crap that passes for grease in the lower shock bearing, and re-lubed it with Bel Ray waterproof.
