Just turn the fuel mixture screw and it will run on a higher idle.

What to do to get my cr to idle ????

The carb needs to be cleaned and cleaned correctly to make it idle. Also if it has any lose or broken vacuum lines, they need to be fixed or repaired because they will also cause idle issues.

I have a 2003 honda cr 250r 2 stroke,It will not kickstart,you can bump start it and it starts right up and runs really good.when you try and kick it it leaks gas out of the carborator.

Usually, a leaking carb is because either the float is set too high, or there is some crud stuck between the float's needle valve and it's seat.
Either one will not allow the float/needle valve to shut off the flow of gas when the float bowl get's full.

This should be your carb:

The floats are the 2 large square items on #5 on the illustration.
Item #3 is the float needle valve.
Item #4 is the needle valve's seat.

My honda cr 250 idle's high when takin over. and before it runs out of petrol it rev's up on it's own.

The air/fuel mixture is Lean as opposed to rich. Adjust the air/fuel mixture screw clockwise in quarter turns until the idle normalizes. This screw can be found inbetween the carb and air filter. It should be a brass screw with a flat head (not cross or philips).
When you're almost out of fuel cab will go lean and therefore idle up.

What level on the needle valve does it go on for a stock cr 125

I believe it's in the middle, or out of five, third one down.
The needle is for you jetting after the pilot (idle) and before the main. Run it steady at 1/3 throttle for 10 minutes, shut it right off, and look at the spark plug color. It needs to be chocolate colored. Too light, move the needle up (Clip down) or too dark, move the needle down. (Clip up)
You can set the pilot and main jet the same way, by running it at an idle, then 1/2 to 3/4 throttle for the main jet.
Note, a bad lag or bog is usually too rich on pilot jet, or even into a rich needle. (too high needle)

My bike has low-endbog

Could be the jetting is off at your lower side. Tis could be from the pilot jet which controlls jetting from idle to 1/4 throttle. You also have an air screw you can slightly tweek, but this is more reponce when you throttle it off of an idle.
Don't forget that a stuck power valve may effect performance, but these are normally for higher rpm's

93 cr 125 has lack of power and a loud nocking

In a 2 stroke engine there are no valves and thus no adjusting required.The itself acts as a valve too.
Maybe you will have to rebore the cylinder and fit an oversize piston -kit or if the cylinder is to its tolerance thn fit in new setoof piston rings.

Honda cr 125 1997 wont idle

Your carberautor is either gummed up or needs to be adjusted. Begin by going to an auto zone or similar store and gatting a can of carb. cleaner that gets added to your gas. Be sure to follow the instructions on how much you add per gallon. let that run through your bike for a while and see where you are. If cleaning the carb. doesn't hellp, then the carb. will have to be adjusted.

Waht is the starting setup for the carburator setting screws for my Honda CR125 motocross?

The idle screw and the air screw adjustment is as follows > IMPORTANT > do not tighten these two screws down. Only screw these in until they LIGHTLY seat. Now turn each screw one and one half turns outward. Set the idle speed with the idle screw. This should get you back on the road.
