Yup...jet size stamped on the side...I just didn't know which jet it was for - it's a starter (choke) jet!
misread your post i thought you were having trouble distinguishing which (size) jet it was

but had a GREAT day!













Popped Cooligan's Gorman cherry, bikes ran great, no crashes, great time!



obligatory wheelie pic for BEEMER BOY!!!



Sunday was @ Wildomar w' a Dad who had ridden dirt as a kid growing up in the desert...

hard packed, ATV wide trails through the mountain brush...





you can catch air on the mini-jumps in the middle of the trail...



even had an "extremely difficult" trail marked as "bloody jersey"...right up my alley...



engine on, heavy brakes, too much momentum

bike falls...



I flip off the bike...



and tumble in a roll...hello bike..



feet on the ground don't offer any traction...so we both slide down the hill :lol:



f rocky hills. video pending...

bought a 32gb microSD card...hopefully w' the GoPro app I can review video straight away on my phone

Niki has one, Much more fun with a family environment compared to the Man Trip You would've really enjoyed it. Saturday night we all cheered Glens two sons on while they surfed qualifiers in a contest in Australia, Luke and Jake Davis are 19 and 21 year old pro surfers on the circuit this year.... Jake advanced :1:

I'll have to come next time!!

but man...I really love having a street plated dirt bike...was riding home after dropping off the truck to the mechanic and saw an XR650L getting gas in long beach...hooked up with him and hit up the local dirt spots around long beach...



he said my wheelies look like I'm going straight vertical - they're getting better!

cool article on the 90's YZ250 :hellyeah:

GP's Classic Steel #47 - '95 YZ250 | PulpMX



key positives:
Quote
the early nineties YZs were well suspended, easy-to-ride and stone reliable.

Quote
The 1995 Yamaha YZ250 was in the third and final year of its development cycle. Originally introduced in late 92, the YZ had been a successful design from the very beginning. The 93-94 motors had been smooth and rider friendly, with wide power curves and tractable deliveries. This combined with their solid suspensions and stable chassis had made them excellent race bikes. They were basically great do-it-all bikes, which did not dominate in any one category, but also lacked the serious flaws of most of the competition.

Quote
In deep loam, the CRs hard hit and top-end pull gave it an advantage. If the track was dry or slippery, however, the tractable YZ was the bike to beat.

Quote
In 1994, Yamaha YZ250s were the acknowledged king of the holeshot on the National level. The hot ticket that year was to add long-rod kit to the 249cc YZ mill and start cashing your 1-900-PRO-RACE holeshot checks. All told, Yamaha YZs nailed about 75% of the starts in 94 and helped propel Larry Ward to the highest finish ever by a privateer in Supercross.

the '95 was rated ~44hp (but had a slightly different engine design)...which, by comparison my '03 yz450f is ~49 and my friend's sumo exc350 ~45...so even at 9 and 20 years behind, 44hp is pretty impressive!

@ breakdirt916: I started working on the carburetor, and it seems some parts may be missing. For sure the floats are not in the bowl. Its in so many pieces; I don't know if something else is missing.
So, if you're in Lake Forest anytime soon; can you come by and take a look? And if you have spare floats; bring them please.
I have the rebuild kit, btw.

edit: I just went and tried another attempt at assembly, and the float is there, It thought it was a toy cart that got misplaced in the box of parts. lol
The float does seem to have a broken wheel. There is a wheel that fits on it, but doesn't stay on. Should be okay in the carb though.

Just picked up a brand new KTM500EXC so let me know when someone wants to hit up the streets or dirt.  Break???  also just ordered my sumo set up for it from Dubya wheels. 
Life is not a journey to the grave with the intention of arriving safely in one pretty well-preserved piece. One should rather skid in broadside thoroughly used up, totally worn out and loudly proclaiming "WOW, what a ride"!!!

yes but there is tons of different riding around it there is technical single track, whoops, sand. hills. rocks every type of riding you can think of rolled into one spot.  best place to ride hands down in my opinion.  and no cops.  anybody that rides dirt knows this place and if they don't well then they are really missing out.
