This to me sounds like you need a carb cleaning. If you have let the bike sit for an extended time the carberators maybe clogged or gummed up. This has to do with the new gas that is out there now. It is cheap and with the introduction of Ethanol alcohol now it is even worse on being stable for long periods of time. I have seen fuel go bad in as little as 3 weeks.. One quick check you can do is open you fuel tank and smell the fuel. IF it smells like varnish it is probably bad. You can drain the tank and add new fuel and that should solve your problem. Keep in mind, that the carbs need to be drained as well to get the old fuel out of there also. Make sure you have a battery charger going when you start crankin that puppy, because you will need lots of extra juice to get that baby to fire up. If it is starting now and runs on choke, that means your idle jets are clogged. Best repair is to remove carbs and clean idle jet. Unless it is fuel injected.
Let me know how that goes and we can proceed from this point. I am a certified mechanic from MMI as well as a HDTV GURU. Smiles. have a good one.

SOURCE: yz 250 wont kickstart
You obviously look after your machine and very sensible when laying up, however as you are probably aware 2 strokes rely heavily on compression, A. to produce excellent combustion and B. to draw fuel into the chamber. So when you try kick starting you can't get enough revolutions to draw the correct amount of fuel into the cylinder, where as you push start you constantly turn over the engine increasing compression slightly and bingo it fires.
Can you remember how when kick starting it before this problem the feel on resistance when kicking over? has it now become a lot easier? if so you possibly have worn or broken compression piston rings.
A compression test will reveal this, I hope this sorts your query?

You will have a carby problem. When the choke is one, and different fuel circuit is used. When you turn off the choke, you go back to the idle circuit of the carb is used, when under throttle, main jets kick in. You probably have a blockage in one of these circuits. Strip the carb down, clean with carby cleaner, blow out all air circuits and jets with compressed air, then setup the idle mixture and tick over speed. Always work with fresh fuel, and drain off, discard any fuel older than a couple of months. It goes off, and turns to a gel like substance that blocks up your carby. Hope this has explained your problem. Happy to talk to you more about it. A FixYa vote is a great reward for for my time taken to explain this to you. Cheers

1. When you rev it up, has it reached its normal operating temperature?
2. If you know how to then check your timing as it sounds like a little off at the moment. When did you have it adjusted last?
3.You can add some fuel cleaner when filling up again and run with it until the tank is low again.
God enough, then return a comment. Thanks
