Just completed my first rebuild!!!

Thanks to all of the help from you here at TT, RM videos, a buddy who's a mechanic and of course, a service manual!

Replaced my 3rd and 5th gear pinions along with a couple bearings, crank kit and bearing, and new top end. The bike started right up with no problems and is running strong. I must say that's a great feeling.

One question though, every once in a while when I'm kicking I get this loud puff of air sound...like when you try and kick it with the wash plug in sometimes. Anyway, is this normal? I don't remember hearing this before. It's just every once in a while.

      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.
