Seeking mechanic for YZ250F

Thinking my issue is carb related, I want to get this bike running again.

I swapped the spark plug and took the carb apart and put it back together and it still doesn't want to run.

quick test that you can do...verify spark..once you know you have spark, then spray some starting fluid in the carb. if it turns starts up and dies, then yes, it's the carb (most likely). if you have verified you have spark and the starting fluid doesn't start the bike then next step would be check compression. top end on a YZ wouldn't be expensive or hard to do at all.
