  1. So I'm senior, pretty much ride every day, but very limited, cause I live in big city, with no transportation to go to a track. So have a small piece of land, they let me put-put around on. Verrrry hard packed dirt on one area,. My brother filming me doin some wheelies. No gloves. Yz 250, so as I'm going past him, very fast wheelie, too fast, I guess tapped my rear brake, and running out of real estate, still in the air, mistakingly grabbed front brake, and at same time, I whiskey throttled, and crashed, breaking my right hand, many stitches on both palms, and concussion. I won't try figure out exactly vwhat happened, but no more wheelies, and might sell that big f***** 250. Only thing happened to the bike was broken foot peg,. Lol.

    Stubborn vintage yz250 , help me!

    Thank you everybody ! For the help. I will.
  5. ,95. Yz250, has always been little bit hard to start. But sometimes first kick. It won't idle much, and I've only had it for little while, so I adjusted pilot a little to help the idle, 1/2 turn in, and it smoked too much soon as I rode it, so I put it back the other way, and it ran fine, but still have to gun it. 3 days later, put my normal stuff on, choke etc. Long story short, I spent 2 hrs trying everything, today, and it still won't start. Plug is not fouled. I really didn't make much adjustments to pilot that day. 1/2 turn IN, then put it back. But now never been this...hard, to start. This bike needs the carb pulled, but any advice , on what might be going on? Thanx

But right now riding my yz250, after buying helmet, what would you suggest Next,.... of saftey gear. Money is limited, but I like to go fast,...I just don't wanna dump it, and be hurt just cause I wasn't wearing something. And haven't checked prices of gear these days.

  10. Ok, I will. I'm wearing my , pull on leather work boots right now, but I'd like Moto boots.
  11. 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!
