I am not certain exactly what bike you have so consider the diagram below as generic. Chances are the float needle is sticking open a bit. A bit of trash may be stopping it from closing fully. The overflow hose is where any "excess" gas is dumped. This hose vents to the open air. Be sure to turn off the gas valve (petcock) at the bottom side of the tank when bike is not in use. Please rate my answer. Thanks!

Should you start on a dirt bike or street bike?

That depends on what you are using it for. Obviously, if you are dirt biking, you should use a dirt bike, and otherwise use a street bike. Start out with what you are going to use the most - dirt (freestyle) or street racing.

Bike cuts out at higher RPMs

It sounds like you did a good job - but, did you adjust the float? You will use more gas now and at high RPM you may be running ouy of gas - Check floats specs and adjust

Hey i need help geting a dirt bike im alonging 14 years old what can i do to get dirt bike plz help me rideing is my live me at [email protected]

The first thing you need to do is to convince your caregivers,whether it's parents,grandparents,etc.that you are responsible.
This means that you should do your chores,homework,be nice to your brothers or sisters if you have any...just make sure that you do this for awhile,not for one day.
After about a month or so,sit down with mom,dad,whoever...and tell them that you really want one.
If they think you deserve to be given the chance then you could start by going to yardsales,auctions,and posting on-line for a used one.
Always start with a used one.
Trust me on this...not only am I someone's child,but I'm also someone's parent...I know how adults
If it's because of money that you can't get one then post on craigslist. You could trade someone on there for something that you have or something that you can do. Maybe some little old lady has a dirtbike in her garage and she needs a hole dug in her could dig the hole for her and she would give you the bike.
If this is truly your passion then it will come to be. My little brother was 15 when he got his first dirtbike.He's almost 40 now,and still lives to ride and rides to live.
Good luck on your quest.

A lot of gas coming out of the carb. overflow tube, eng on or off

the float pin is stuck or has some dirt in it. try tapping the side of the float bowl(s) with the handle of a screwdriver... not hard enough to break it. if that doesn't work you will likely have to take the carb apart and clean it.

Hard to start yz250 dirt bike 2001 4stroke

i used to own a yz426f and it had the exact problem... a fresh plug will fix your problem. change the plug and the bike will run great. also don't start the bike and shut it off , my bike would be fine if i started it and rode for a while getting to the proper heat range help save the plug. if my bike didn't start in one or two kicks it was usually the plug.

hope this helps
