How long of a lay up? Sounds like a dead battery. Put a voltmeter between the positive and negative battery terminals and try to start the bike. If the voltage drops to under 10v when you are trying to start, your battery is faulty.

The oil light will come on until the bike starts.
Remove the air filter and spray a short shot of starter fluid into the intake.
Replace the filter and see if the bike will start.

The oil light is on because the engine isn't running to build any oil pressure. Sounds like the new battery may need to be charged fully. After the battery is fully charged, and the 'clicking' noise is back (or not) check the battery connections for corrosion--especially at the positive terminal. If ok, you should get one solid click when trying to start. If ok, but still not starting, jump the two heavy terminals of the solenoid (click source) with a heavy wire which should bump the starter motor. If nothing, then the starter motor needs service--usually the brushes inside fail to make contact with the armature due to brush wear, or weak springs. Most dealers will likely only sell you a new starter--no internal parts. Hope this helps!

Check the oil level. If you are lucky there was too much oil and this may have been some blow by. More likely though, you may have blown a piston ring. If this is the case, you will have to overhaul the engine or drop in a new one. By the way, was the bike laying on the right side for any length of time?

Yz 250 wont kickstart


Hi!
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?
Press the Blue button please for my FREE effort,
Thank You!
