Take the cards off the manifold and strip them both down, counting how many turns etc for the jet settings. Replace the float or float valve in the faulty carb and clean them both out. Reassemble the cluster and fit to the bike.
Job done apart from a little tuning to be done, most of which should be about right as you counted the turns on the jets.

Honda CB250 won't rev

Sound like the cable may be damaged or is getting pinched somewhere. I would start at the handles and work your way down more than likely its at the top, Handle could be crumpled in slightly with the fall and pinching the acc-cable

CB250 is backfiring

Backfire when throttle down can be;
1. dirty carbs that are running lean and need cleaning. Also the rubber grommets that hold the carbs can be leaking at the backside or even dry rotted.
2. no air filter
3. broken or open vacuum lines
4. an aftermarket exhaust that needs rejetting or an open exhaust system

Does a GX240 Honda carb have mixing adjustments? It floods after running for 2-3 minutes then fouls the plug and stops. Thanks, Mike in SC

No, the only adjustment on the carb is the high/low idle. Check your engine gaskets for leaks using either water or carb cleaner, preferably carb cleaner. Otherwise just replace the carb, it's around 60 dollars.

2 stroke engine not starting

Head or base gasket leak, spark is happening at the wrong time. Any of these will cause it to not run.

!983 honda magna v45 clutch not engaging

if you rebuilt your carburetors you have made a mistake when you reassembled them a carb must sprsy a fine mist of "dry" fuel into the engine intake your carbs are flooding you need to check your fuel floats , jets and, don't forget to check the power piston circuit and, balance (sync) your carbs on the bike when you're done
your chuch is fine if you did not touch it
