Ok, the bikes not idling very well anymore and has stalled on me a few times so from the sites lovely search feature I'm figuring its time to clean the pilots. I've never done anything like this before - I just want to confirm that I have this straight before I go poking around and making things worse…

I do have the Clymer manual and various photos off the 250 site so I have some idea of what to expect.

To clean the pilot jets I need to take the carbs off (can I leave them hanging or do they need to come completely off the bike?), remove the bottom portion where the floats are and just remove the pilot to clean. Do the pilots actually unscrew or is it a friction fit? While the tanks off I'll clean the airfilter as well.


Thanks

You can leave them hanging. but arrange a bench near the bike to work on or you'll loose small parts.
