    YZ250 won’t idle

    No it’s stuck on there but swivels someway. I looked up a 2000 CR 250 throttle cable and they’re only like nine bucks so I think I am just going to get the right cable and have this one as a spare. The other cool thing is that the carburetor I got is a long body so I think it will shoe horn into the short body opening from what I read but I will keep everyone updated. Has anyone had any experience with putting the 91 mm long carburetors in where the 75 mm carb was?

    Ok now next question if I cut the adjuster off of my cable will it look like the cable end on the right?

    Ordered a 38mm air striker (2000 cr250r stock carb) should be here next week I’ll post a update when I get it on.

    To rich for my blood right now. I found a air striker for 120.00 so to be clear I won’t have any issues going from a 39mm to a 38mm?

    YZ250 won’t idle

    UPDATE. On these PWM keihin carbs the choke is also the idle adjustment so I decided to remove it a clean it up good. Turns out the previous owner snapped off the plastic threads and the just decided to glue the knob back on the top of the carb🤦🏻‍♂️😑. So here is my delema, a new knob is 37.00 on eBay but I found a PWK air striker form80-120.00 I’m thinking I would just bite the bullet and buy a air striker and be done. Any input from anyone? Also this PWM keihin measured 39mm! I thought stock on this bike was a 38mm? I guess it’s possible that who ever did the big bore kit from Maxpower bumped up the carb.🤷🏻‍♂️ So that leads me to yet another question, should I stick with the 39mm when getting a air striker or go back down to the 38mm? Thanks everyone in advance. Here are some pics

    Think I can safely drop in a 42 pilot jet in her? Gonna try and get some at the local shop today.

    I haven’t tried starting it bone cold with no choke. I pull the choke and it starts then I immediately turn the choke off. I only use the chock for about 10 seconds after it starts.

    YZ250 won’t idle

    Long story short just got through doing a frame up rebuild on my 98 yz250. It has a big bore kit on it from max power. The motor is fresh and starts right up on one or two kicks. The problem is it won’t idle no matter what. Iv messed with the air screw and it has no effect. This year carb has the idle adjustments on the choke knob but again it has no effect on the amount of idle because I can’t get it to idle at all. Was thinking maybe I should go up or down on my pilot jet size?? Bike runs great other than the no idle thing. Any help from you 2 stroke wizards would be great.

    Yz250 bike stand question

    Thanks guys.

    Yz250 bike stand question

    Iv recently restored a YZ250 and right after I got the bike I purchased a harbor freight stand for it. Nothing special but it did the job. Now that I have the entire bike redone the stand seems to short. It will keep the bike from tipping over but both wheel are not off the ground. I rebuilt the rear shock and put a heavier spring on it for my weight. Do you think the bike just needs time to settle or should I just get a taller stand. The harbor freight stand is 16” tall and the one I’m looking to get is 17” tall. Not sure what changed? I also put new tires on it.

    1998 YZ250 rear wheel and swing arm question

    Nice! Thanks for the help everyone!

    1998 YZ250 rear wheel and swing arm question

    Thanks man, I just kind of sketched me out seeing that and not remembering what it look like when I took the wheel off I didn’t want to pinch something and create a week stress point somewhere and have something break down the road. Can anybody else confirm?
  15. Iv been rebuilding a 98 YZ250 for a few months now and when I got the bike it had a crack in the swing arm. I jumped on eBay and got another swing arm that the seller said was a 98 as well. The time has come to put the rear wheel on and I noticed that I have this much of a gap to pinch together, is this a normal amount or do I need to make some spacers on my lathe? Linkage and everything else mounted up perfect so I do believe it is indeed a 98. The gap just looked a bit big just to pinch together. The pic shows the total gap (as in hub is tight against the swing arm on the other side when I took the pic)
