new to site with new quad 250 fourtrax 2x4

hey guys just picked me up a 99 fourtrax its a little rough but got a decent deal.
the guy didn't seem to know much about it other than to start it.

I really haven't had a chance to go over it yet, looks like needs rear bearings and foot brake lever needs some tlc
I've got a little maintenance to do list:

gear oil - changed
motor oil - changed (whats a good way to flush these engines? seafoam?)((any filters?))

new plug - changed
brake fluid
Fresh Fuel - yup
The unit doesn't really idle i'm most likely gonna have the carb apart - yup (might have effed up the hoses too)
purge exhaust - yup really no change

Does anyone have any advice for me or suggestions for need to check/do that would be appreciated

If you don't find free ones, bay has tons of paper service manuals.

i would like to confirm that i got my hoses all right the only one i'm sure of is fuel in.

It should stay running. You may have to adjust on the carb

Ok so now i'm confused the guy told me that this quad was a 250 fourtrax but i'm thinking its a 300. the thing says fourtrax on the side of the tank but all i can find for 250cc bikes is recon. What kinda bike is this?

its at my brother place right now so i can't go out and have a better look at it

any ideas? or possibly places to confirm the model motor size? k thanks
