    2010 EVO 290 revved itself to death!

    Throttle cable pulled out twist grip or carb ?

    Assuming its an amal ? Screw nearest engine is the mixture screw, in for richer. This screw is very sensitive, so make very small adjustments at a time, and only once engine is warm. Screw behind it is tickover, in faster.

    Normal unleaded is fine. Have you tried a new plug ? When you tickling it, don't go crazy, slightly flood it only. If the plugs wet, dry it, heat it and try again. To start it ease it over compression on the firing stroke, then give it a long push, rather than a kick.

    You said you had boyer ignition ? Sounds like a standard set up to me. Black things a rectifier, blue a condenser.

    For the purposes of getting it started any petrol will do, for longer term running and piece of mind castrol do an octane boost / lead replacement . https://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/CASTROL-VALVEMASTER-LEAD-REPLACEMENT-PETROL-ADDITIVE-OCTANE-BOOST-DA6267/323238330293?ul_ref=http://rover.ebay.com/rover/1/710-53481-19255-0/1?ff3=2andpub=5575376664andtoolid=10001andcampid=5338268676andcustomid=9b232b89-2caa-430a-b189-660203316fd0andlgeo=1anditem=323238330293andsrcrot=710-53481-19255-0andrvr_id=1852669596561andrvr_ts=d672addd1680aad98dc1ebdcfff315a8andul_noapp=trueandpageci=cae57e3d-7ab6-4a3f-a927-e9aa0c38acb2andredirect=mobile

    Climber Flywheel puller

    Unless there is more than one fly wheel. M35 x 1.5 right is correct. https://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/FLYWHEEL-PULLER-M35-x-1-5-RH-HUSQVARNA-610-ROTAX-250-350-500/263017909599?hash=item3d3d16cd5f:g:LLcAAOSwQz1bGUQyandredirect=mobile

    Smokey Fantic 240

    You sure you need seals ? Does it run very weak / erratic, dry side seal. Burns gear oil which generally looks different to 2stroke smoke ? Other side. Not just the exhaust needing a good clean out ?
