Question about 2007 Yamaha yZ 125
I've tried to adjust the screws on the carburettor but no success, could it be that the bike stood for a while?
The problem sounds like your idle jet is clogged. This sounds hard but its really quite easy if you have basic tools and talent.
You need to remove the carburetor, pull the bottom off and look for the very small jet that is up inside of the carburetor. Now you will see the big jet at the bottom and next to that you will see what looks like a tube up inside that tube is a small jet with a small screw driver you can remove this.
Now use some car cleaner and cover you eyes and spray untill you see the cleaner come out the other end. That is the quick fix if you want to get carried away just rebuild the whole carb the kit is very cheap. But to just get it going do the above its been done that way for years... Good Luck

This to me sounds like you need a carb cleaning. If you have let the bike sit for an extended time the carberators maybe clogged or gummed up. This has to do with the new gas that is out there now. It is cheap and with the introduction of Ethanol alcohol now it is even worse on being stable for long periods of time. I have seen fuel go bad in as little as 3 weeks.. One quick check you can do is open you fuel tank and smell the fuel. IF it smells like varnish it is probably bad. You can drain the tank and add new fuel and that should solve your problem. Keep in mind, that the carbs need to be drained as well to get the old fuel out of there also. Make sure you have a battery charger going when you start crankin that puppy, because you will need lots of extra juice to get that baby to fire up. If it is starting now and runs on choke, that means your idle jets are clogged. Best repair is to remove carbs and clean idle jet. Unless it is fuel injected.
Let me know how that goes and we can proceed from this point. I am a certified mechanic from MMI as well as a HDTV GURU. Smiles. have a good one.

SOURCE: Yamaha TTR 250, Idling Problem
check the inlet manifold rubber has not seperated from the aluminium part of the manifold ,this is very common on the ttr 250 and will cause the exact problem you have,if it is seperated either replace it or repair it with some good quality rtv sealant avoid sillicone sealant as it is not petrol resistant and will turn to jelly.adam

Fuel filter is located near the fuel shutoff valve within three inches. It is inline between the shutoff valve and the fuel pump (towards tank).
The fuel circuit is: Tank/Fuel Pump/Fuel Filter/Fuel Shut-off Valve/Carbs.
You first step is to check for fuel delivery to the filter. Make sure the bike is cool and no iginition sources are nearby. Disconnect the inlet line at the filter and turn key on and crank engine (to trigger fuel pump.) Do not try and start at this time (choke off).
If fuel is adequate to the filter, check the filter by blowing through it, it should easily pass air. Replace filter if questionable.
Next reconnect the fuel lines and remove float bowl drain plugs in the back of the carbs (2 per carb). If with key on and cranking fuel pours out of these ports then you probably have clogged fuel jets. If not then the float bowl needles / pipes could be plugged with varnish from dried fuel. You can try spraying carb cleaner into the fuel inlet to clear the varnish and then retest. Careful not to spray carb cleaner on yourself (wrap straw with a rag).
If you have good fuel flow to the carbs and bowls you probably have varnish plugging the jets. You should remove the carbs and clean them thoroughly.
Hope this helps,

I have been working on my carb today,the pipe from the bottom of the carb should just run down by the bottom of the swinging arm,there should be another pipe from the pipe on the left side of the carb just above the fuel intake which also runs down to the swinging arm and connect to nothing.

There have an air leak between the carb and the cylinder and/or the head and cylinder. Old hard / cracked rubber fittings and O rings are usually the problem. When extra air gets into the system it leans the fuel mix and the high idle is the result. It also means the engine runs hotter. Also, cracked or broken reeds can be a source.
