Question about 2003 Yamaha YZ 250
My engine runs fine through low and mid rpm's but when I start to open her up and it gets to the higher revs it starts to cough and sputter, almost as if I pulled the choke on during acceleration. I have done a comp. test and it was fine-160 P.S.I,my reeds appear to be fine, my sparkplug is very black but DRY, no smoking from exhaust except for normal output. I know my way around motorcycles but i'm stumped, could it be a fuel/carb problem, or an electrical/ignition problem? I hope somebody can help thanx
Fuel carburetor problem! it causes most of the spluttering problems i have encountered with mine so far!
it could have blockage and insufficient gas enters on it during high revs!

You have a slightly gummed up carb. I would get a can of carb. cleaner that you add to the fuel and hope that running that through the carb in a couple of tanks of gas will solve your problem.
