2000 ttr225 spits and sputters in 1st & 2nd gear at low rpms, or when I gas it hard in those gears. Done everything possible to the carb with little or no change. Could it need a valve adjustment?

1 # Check float hight, sounds as though it is set to low.
2 # Check for vacuum leaks around inlet manifold.

SOURCE: trouble changing gears 1st and 2nd

If the clutch feels firm with no play u may have worn syncronizer's in the trans, take it to trans shop and have them road test it, they will not charge in most cases.

SOURCE: Hard Clutch and 1st and 2nd Gear Shifting is hard

The clutch bearing is supposed to have a groove on the inside where it slides on the shaft That groove is supposed to have a heavy grease applied to it to prevent the bearing running dry on the collar it slides on.Regardless of your driving style, that grease is intended to remain there for the life of the clutch, (generally every clutch I have ever replaced still had some remaining lube there unless the bearing itself failed from a material defect which caused it to overheat and cause that grease to then run out of the retaining groove) I'm not there and can't see the old parts, but in my opinion the first clutch may have failed partially because of your lack of skill in using a stick shift vehicle but the second failure obviously is not your fault if the information you have posted is correct.
Good luck

SOURCE: my 2000 jeep grand cherokee has trouble changing out

If the dealer has previous service history It would be good to look at it. If they are willing to do the service, are they taking care of it for a charge or in an effort to correct the problem? When buying from a private individual, they can sell you anything, in any condition. Dealers must offer a working item and stand behind it obviously not as long as a new car, but if just, means very recently, you should have certain rights. I suggest you do as they tell you and document what they did and why in case this does not turn out well.
Certainly hope it does!

SOURCE: transmission does not shift out of 1st gear

There is a vacuum line that is connected to a vacuum modulator on the transmission. The vacuum modulator looks like a tiny inline fuel filter on the right rear of the transmission. Remove the vacuum line from the modulator, if transmission fluid spills out when the rubber hose is removed the modulator is punctured. The engine will **** your transmission fluid through the vacuum line and into the intake system and burn it through combustion. If the modulator is punctured you must have it replaced.

I have a 1983 gr650 tempter. The engines runs great sitting still. Hits rpms and sounds good. My problem is when I put it into gear, it spits and sputters and wont hit rpms. I'm lost.

Obviously something is wrong. Start simple check all routine maintenance items, empty the gas & save a sample from the bottom of the tank. Why? Ethanol/gas loves to absorb water from the air in as little as 1 month. Additives allow the water to mix with the fuel, it does not prevent it and it needs agitation to mix. So if your bike sits in a garage for 6 months waiting for good weather, you can expect to be running watered down fuel. It will sound like those lawn mowers that sputter and spit in the spring after sitting all winter. If you find water, even 1 drop, clean everything out: tank, fuel lines, fuel pump(if applicable), carb, and carb bowl if applicable. If all is well, do a compression test.

It could be worn emulsion tubes as they can 'oval' after a while (45,000 miles+). If they are ovalled it's a case of carbs off, float bowls off, unscrew the main jet screw, pop the diaphragm lids off, remove the diaphragm and slides and push the emulsion tubes out through the top. Put new ones in, in reverse order

Multiple carb problems

Hi, Justin and the usual suspects are:
1. Throttle cables misaligned or misrouted.
2. Damaged or restricted fuel tank venting system.
3. Inlet system air leak.
4. Vacuum piston malfunction.
5. Accelerator pump leaking or no output.
6. Plugged bowl vent or overflow.
7. Fuel level in bowl too low.
8. Restricted fuel supply passages.
9. Plugged jets or passages.
10. Worn or damaged needle or needle jet.
11. The enrichener valve not seated or leaking.

My 2000 Acura will randomly lose power for 3-7 seconds when slowly accelerating in 1st gear, especially when cold. RPMs do not increase (stays steady or decrease), so not likely the clutch slipping. Any...

Well it could still be the clutch.

But without knowing more..such as mileage, etc., its hard to say make sure the fluid level is up and good. It is possible that you have some internal problems; but I would have the clutch checked out by a good mechanic.
It is very possible for the clutch to slip at stead RPM's in 1st gear, as 1st gear is very low, and has to do more work per RPM than any other gear besides reverse.
