I took the carb apart and cleaning the jets. I have the main jet cleaned out can see all the way through it and used a torch tip cleaner to clean all the little holes out but on the small jet I have a question? Am I to see all the wat through this jet? Can't get anything through it. What else should I clean? The jets were dirty. This is my 250ex! Thanks

Got it, cut the end of you torch cleaner at an angle and bored it out. The 250 running like new, might have to try that on the AT. Thanks
