    Polaris 90 2 stroke engine

    Not that I am aware of. Some of the older versions had manual choke and later ones had electric choke.

    RT 180 Bogging and Sputtering issue

    Things I would check, in order: Fresh gas? Good spark plug? Clean carb? Good compression? Good reeds?

    YZ250X steering stem nut

    This sounds exactly what I planned on doing. I own many many tools but when I went looking for a specific tool to torque #3 nut I thought it was odd that I could only find hand spanners without prevision to use a torque wrench. In my experience, if Motion Pro doesn't make a tool for it then it's probably not necessary. LOL

    YZ250X steering stem nut

    Is the steering stem nut torque critical? The book says to torque the nut, loosen it and then retorque. Other than a $30 socket on eBay I’m having trouble finding an appropriate tool to torque this nut. Any insight is appreciated.

    Lectron carb on a yz250x?

    Glad to hear that! Most two stroke issues are due to poor jetting. I'm glad the guide helped you.

    Rd designs head mods

    The stock YZ250 head still needs the squish corrected. OP - Did you do a compression test? I bet it has the compression you are looking for...
