Carburetor revelation.

Ok so yesterday I spent the entire day taking apart my dirty carbs, cleaning them and putting everything back together.

I have learned:

1. Cleaning the carbs and replacing spark plugs restores a lot of the bikes lost power.

2. Get a fuel injected bike.

I sent a letter to Yamaha after my last carb cleaning.

"Your plan to convince riders to buy new, fuel injected bikes by using cheap screws on float bowl covers is working."

Dang things strip if you look at them funny.

I don't know about the 250 since I have never worked on one but on an inline 4, you also need to sync them regularly especially after a good cleaning. Same goes for the FI bikes they need to be sync'd as well.
