    '02 cr 250 air fuel mixture

    hey guys, my '02 cr 250 is having an issue. the bike is running too rich. i took my spark plug out today and it was black and smelt like straight gas. I ended up getting 2 new plugs, ngk was the make. was just wondering how to adjust the air fuel mixture simply. also i watched this youtube video and the guy said he was goin to turn the screw out 2 turns and it looked like to me he only turned it a half-turn. so now im just wondering what really is a turn? is it for example with a flathead screwdriver from 1 flat side to the other...is that 1 turn or do you want to turn it until the original flat side that you started on if facing up? this is the youtube video: !

    2005 crf450r hard to start

    need some ideas on what it might be. no matter how many times i kick it it just dosent wanna start. ive been pulling it with a car to start it and once its running for a min or so i can turn it off and it will start up 1st or 2nd kick. not sure if its valves, fuel screw etc. post up your ideas.

    overheating problem?

    i'm not sure, but while i was tuning the carb the bike overheated like crazy...the radiator started bubbling over the overflow, then the coolant touched the engine and was steaming....was idling for about 4-5 mins...is this normal? or what will cause it to do this? haven't started it since it did it.

    2004 kx125 help

    its not ur float.. my 02' cr250 does the same thing, and its a brand new carb. it a combination of ur air/gas mixture screw and ur idle screw. to start, find the air/gas mixture screw (its really small and usually on the bottom right of ur carb) Then screw it all the way in and unscrew 1 1/2 times out (just to start, u can tweak it from there if needed) Also adjust ur idle, 2 strokes arent really supposed to idle, u want it just so that when u pull the clutch around a turn it dosent stall. If u have any questions feel free to pm me as i am usually on the honda cr fourms
