SOURCE: Cant keep my RM 250 2 stroke running

See My Postings Elsewhere Concerning 2 Stroke Cranking And Running Problems Check Those Reeds Often. A Quick Way To Check Them Is To Remove The Rubber Duct From The Air Box Where It Clamps To The Carb. Exposing The Carb Throat . If You Can Keep It Running At A High Idle(1500 RPM) A Noticeable Amount Of Blowback (Oily Fuel) Is An Indication Of A Broken Reed. Replace With 2 Stage Carbon Fiber Petals. Use Lock-Tite On The Screws That Attach The Petals To The Cage. It Should Crank Easier And Idle Correctly. Try 1 1/2 Turns After Light Seating On The Air Screw(CARB).

SOURCE: 2001 Yamaha Banshee that won't stay running

If your jetting is too rich it will be extremely hard to kick start it and will most likely flood it from kicking.First thing i would do is pull the top of the carbs off (cable,slides and needles) and see which clip they're set at. If they are set stock which would be middle clip then lower the needle one clip. This will lean the mix out and should start up easier with no problems,The idle issue is most likely just off.If your fiance still has the TORS on it then on top of the carbs he will see 2 dime size and screws and wires as soon as he takes his seat off.While running he can turn each dime size screw in or out to adjust the idle. If it has a TORS elimator kit on it then he won't have all the junk on top of the carbs and it will be just a cable and round cap screwed directly on top of the carbs and the idle screws will be on the side of each carb (brass color screws with nuts to tighten) same or out to adjust the idle where needed.Hope this helps.

SOURCE: I just had the carburetor

Sounds like the guy who cleaned the carb system has messed up the float settings. Alternate to that, the float needle is stuck or left out when the carb was reassembled.

Are you saying that 2 & 4 got gas with external tank but not with gas tank? If so something else has happened ,if gas is getting to the carb it cannot by-pass 2 to get to 1. Take the tank back off ,connect to external, again. See what happens.
