I will be needing a new carburator for my 2001 yz250f. does anybody know if i should stick to what i have on the bike now with hot start/choke/tps or change so a new 37mm 250f carb without the hot start? If i can put a newer carb on the bike without hot start will it be harder to start warm?
thanks in advance,
matt

I would stick with 01-02 as even with the automatic decompresion the hot start button would be nice.

my bike also has a decompression cam. my problem with my carb is that when i turn on the gas it pours straight out of the bottom drain in the bowl. any ideas what this could be?

check your float height.
Possibly a bad needle.

well sorry, thanks for laughing, its my first bike and im still learning about it. took me 19 years to save up the money. i took a look at the float and checked for holes and everything, but how can i check the float hight? should i take the bottom of the carb off and try to move the floats by hand to see if they are working? also when the float is up the gas should stop coming down right? or is that backwards?
