SOURCE: mass flooding piston cylinder
This sounds to me like a carb float being stuck open. Turn off the gas and drain the carb. Next, turn the gas back on and sharply tap the float bowl with the plastic handle of a screwdriver as the fuel bowl refills. The goal here is to vibrate the float to free it up. If doing this process a couple of times does not free the float I would remove the carb and clean it with a spray carb cleaner. Be sure main jet and float needle are clear. Clean the air filter then re-mount carb. Next Remove the water trap bowl at the bottom of the petcock, (gas valve). Dump it, clean it and re-mount it, ( not all bikes have a water trap bowl ).
Install an inline fuel filter. Turn the gas on, wait a moment for the float bowl to fill with gas then give it a try.
Please rate this solution. Thanks!

Pull the slide out and then move the clip on the jet needle one notch lower. Also try two notches to see which helps most. This will richen the mix in mid-range.

SOURCE: how much is my yz 125 worth?
the retail value in good condition is approx $1,500. meaning it looks good, runs good, good tires, breaks,chain and sprokets. but with the extras you have and the after market up grades, i would start with a little higher price.

I had a simular problem with my 88 xr. It started out just running bad at higher speeds which had me thinking it was a carb or plug problem. I started changing plugs and had varing results which still had me guessing. So I started adjusting and jetting the carb. Still the same varing results. I suspected the CDI box so I tried to get one. (I live in Thailand, not the easiest thing.) The parts places produced several boxes that plugger in but gave me the results you just described. Good spark but no start, I also got one box that started the bike real good but would not accelerate. There is a built in timing in those CDI boxes. Just thought you might check this, By the way the original box of mine eventually failed completely and I was correct in my suspicions. I found a used one and it runs great.
