Everything is good but still no start

Hey all,ive had this problem since i dumped my bike in a small pond last summer.After it happened i got the bike running(although it sounded kinda throaty) and got back home,tried to start it the next day and no dice.So i winterized it and now that summer is coming im wondering if i should pony up the cash and take it to a dealer.

Ive checked spark,its fine,gas if fine,no water anywhere cause i sprayed the inside of the gas tank and crank case with a water displacer.Compression seems fine so im thinking its my carb but ive literally taken it apart 3 times.Any help is appreciated

Did you dump out the pipe? You can cheat the carb by using a weed burner in the carb....unlit of course. Check all the electrical connections and pull the cover on the ignition and be sure it is clean and dry. Fuel, spark, timing,compression....gotta run.

      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.
