The carbs overflows when trying to start the bike


The floats may have stuck or the bowls haven't been put back together correctly. You will probably have to remove and strip the carbs. make sure you make note of everything as you are stripping them. Lots of little bits and pieces which can go back in the wrong way or go missing...

My Yamaha TTR250 1998 model starts and idles fine but when you put it into gear it stalls the bike?


I had an old YZ465 that use to do that. Has it sat a long time? I found on mine the clutch discs were stuck together. I use to start it and then push the bike and jump on and hit it in gear. That would break the discs loose. After that it would work fine until I stored the bike for a long time again.
Hope that helps. Just go easy with it, because the springs force all the oil out from between the clutch plates so they will be dry for just a moment where they were bound together..

Knocking sound


Does this knocking sound change/subside when you pull in the clutch lever? As the clutch baskets wear or go bad they develop free play between the basket and the drive gear that is riveted to it. Since you don't know ''dick" about bikes i suggest you either pick up a shop manual or go see dick, who hopefully knows more than you! Internet diagnosis can git a bit complex, especially when you don't know your way around the machine! You may get a ton of suggestions but following them thru may be beyond you abilities?

Gear stuck


If a reputable shop did the work and they put something together wrong they will be happy to fix the problem free of charge. If a disreputable shop did the work they'll say, How do we know it wasn't like that when you brought it in? Either way, it's got to be opened up again,,,
