1988 Honda 250x
I bought a 88 Honda 250x off my buddy, the previous owner had put a 12;1 wiseco piston in it and hmf pipe on it. it wasn't running right at first, so I pulled carb and cleaned it. it helped but wasn't full extent of problem. make a long story short it needed new cams and rockers due to exhaust rocker wear and exhaust lobe wear. So I did just that, new rockers, and stage 1 cam. I had it running pretty good but it was consistent high idle dude to carb insulator(connects carb to head) was leaking profusely through cracks. That was on a 122 main jet. which is way too small. Throttle cable was a little sticky. So I ordered a new throttle cable and carb insulator. installed both, now I can't get it to even start. I've got little slack in throttle cable, fuel/air mixture screw I've tried from 1 3/4 turn to 2 1/2 and still no luck. I'm at a loss on what to do next. I tried the 122 jet,130 and a 132. I have up to a 140 from 130, then just the 122.
brand new ngk dr8es-l plug.
any help and all input is greatly appreciated guys.
