Last one i wanted badly

ok so i dont want to give up but ive tried lubing the cables and the plastic idle screw is fine i bought the bike and rode it for like two weeks and there was always a small oil leak i changed the left crankcase oil seal and then when i try to start the bike it only starts with the clutch in no matter what gear and then it sounds really loud and then dies in like 10 seconds or less unless i give it throttle but its still very loud and it shouldnt be (sounds like its revving high) and i just cant figure out for the life of me how to fix this im pretty sure it has nothing to do with the cables or screw but idk if if could be the stator or something else. 1986 honda rebel 250. i dont want to sell the bike its my first one

it's not the stator - sounds like you need to clean the carb

search this forum for carb cleaning posts
