Question about 1986 Honda XR 250 R
Bike has set for a good while no spark at all how can i fix
Check to make sure there is no damage to any wiring. Check to make sure the magnet on the flywheel still has meagnetism Also make sure the ignition switch is not not the problem by spraying it down with contact cleaner on the electrical portion. It can corrode from sitting so long. If that does not work, Swap the ingition module./ignitor for a known good one- it is most likely that module failed.

Replace the spark plug caps and try again. On Honda's the cap is often part of the wire (a dealer part) NGK makes some inexpensive plug caps about $5 each. They should OHM out to 5000 anything above or below and you need to replace them. This should fix the problem.

IF you have a battery get a new one ; put in new gas ; super; dsid you ajest any screws on carb. You tight need to run a prime tank right to your carb to prime it; and then hook your tank backup new gas lines to your carb. Now break out with the WD40 to spray all switches for rust.

im thinking if it has spark and getting gas and has compression, the bike will run. sometimes a "WEAK" coil will give a good spark, but under compresion its not enough to ignite the fuel. if thats not the case, take the air filter off and spray starting fluid into the carb and with NO CHOKE, give it full throttle and kick it over. if that dont do it try compression starting it, tow it for some distance if you have to. if that dont do it, then there must be something wrong with the carb. jets, fuel air adjustment. thats all i have. good luck.

sounds like your coil is bad,could be few other things but coil is most common,and least expensive.if memory serves me right its mounted under tank( just follow plug wire to coil) will cost around $40.00 used and $80.00 new
