Question about 1989 kawasaki GPX 250 R
Was sat damp for a night after driving home two days prior now won't start and after the plugs and carbs been cleaned I was wondering if fuel flow maybe an issue as some plonker had screwed the incorrect screws into top fairing/ tank and was thinking it may have caused a blockage shall I empty the tank and take off stopcock/taps and clean?

To me I want to know how old that gas is. If it smells like old paint or stale at all you need to rid the complete system. Then you need to take your carb. off and take it apart and clean it and all the jets, since you said there was sand in the gas tank.

i'd say the carb is gummed up especially the pilot jet (#16158) in this pic of the USA carb. may have to remove the carb & bowl and then remove the pilot jet (w/ flat head screw driver) and clean out the tiny holes.
the carb slide is installed backwards (turned 180 degrees). its #16025 in the pic. i've done this before on my daughter's XR70 and Z50. you'll know if its this when you move the choke lever, RPMs increase and decrease.
hope this worked for you and was fast enough.

remover all plastic/ rubber parts
then soak the whole carb body and slow jet in lacquer thinner
the slow speed jet/needle circuit needs to be cleaned with just 1 strand from 18 gauge copper wire going through all passages an holes pilot circuit in pic

Start with setting the air and throttle screws. Turn each one inward until it GENTLY seats. Back each one out one and one half turns. Clean the air filter and starter plunger. The plunger may need to be rebuilt or replaced. Check the pilot and main jet sizes. There will be a number stamped on the side of the jets. The pilot jet should be #45, the main jet should be #140.
