Did you checked the collar where the carburetor plugs on to on the cylinder head? They usually crack and **** extra air through. Also remove that rubber collar and check the o-ring it has installed at the point that contact's the cylinder head.

I have a 2003 kx250 i run it with mc1 50:1 and when i ride it slow around my campsite it will foul a plug and when im out in the trails getting on it hard it will run hard what sould i do so i dont foul...

I would stay with the same heat range(BR8) to stay on the safe side. You didn't say if when you are at the camp sight the bike is cold and just off the truck or warm and right off the trail. But usually alot of 2strokes need to be cleaned out when their being warmed up or they can foul a plug. Get it started, blip the throttle a few times to get some heat in the cylinder and then hold it open until you hear it rev faster and run smooth. Thats usually enough.

Suzuki 2009 DR-Z 250 won't rev past half throttle

I would have it checked out. I know that it has limitors on it but it shouldn't be half throttle. It should rev as soon as you start twisting the trottle.

Very slow to start huskey te 250 on a 53 plate

The engine is water cooled. The exhaust pipe is air cooled. Sitting idle and revving the engine is likely to exceed the cooling capacity of the motionless air. Air needs to flow over the pipe to cool it. If the pipe is glowing red while riding then consider re-jetting the carb. Too lean a fuel/air mixture burns hotter.
Please rate this solution. Thanks!

Mc22 CBR 250 revving to high travelling at 100kph

Its okay. For as long as you're not revving the bike on its redline for too long. CBR, XJR and other inline engines love high RPMS. They're built for it.

1982 suzuki gsx 250 not revving over 5000rpm

usually when surging like that happens there is a vacuum leak where the carbs are attached to the heads check the rubber rings that hold the carbs on to see if they are cracked if so then replace them and that should solve your problem
