99 YZ125 rear shock ?'s

My son's yz125 bounces pretty good in the rear. It has a stock spring and he weighs 150. I have the free sag at 30mm and his race sag is 98. When I have the bike off the stand I can bounce the rear really easily by hand.

Wondering if the shock needs rebuilt or if the spring might be just worn out?

Any help would be greatly appreciated.

Is there any oil on the shaft or at the base or on the bottom out cone?

I looked for that after he was done riding and I couldn't really see any. I'm going to check better tonight after work though. Obviously if there is I'll need a rebuild.

      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.
