Question about 2002 Yamaha TT-R 250
The white smoke indicates the need for new valve guide seals. The black smoke indicates that the fuel/air mix is far too rich. Re-jet the carb to stock #137 main jet. Don't mess with the pilot jet if the bike idles okay. No other settings to mess with. Install a new stock plug ; NGK R CR9E
ALWAYS have a fire extinguisher on hand when working on carburetors.
Drain the carburetor. There should be a screw on the lower side of the carb float bowl. Remove the screw then replace it after the fuel drains. Remove the float bowl and clean the entire carb with a spray carb cleaner from the auto parts store. Wear protective goggles to avoid getting spray in your eyes. Spray into all the little airways and fittings in the carb. Check the jet needle clip on the top of the needle. Put it in mid-range. Put the carb back together, clean the air filter and install the carb. Let the float bowl fill then start the engine.
I just thought of somthing. You may be creating the rich mix problem yourself. See the following starting instructions.
There is a proper way to start the engine. Four controls are on your bike to assist in starting.
