I can't get my 06 crf 250 to kick start but it

the same thing happened to me its probably your valve clearance and need to be shimmed or if they worn really bad they need to be replaced..regarding roll starting your bike it damages your bike further and your engine could seize.

Chances are there is a water build up in the carb float bowls. The water comes from condensation in the gas tank. Try draining the carbs. Another possibility is carburetor main jets partially plugged up. You must clean the carbs if plugged jets are found to be the problem. Please rate my answer. Thanks. tombones49_152.gif

2002 WR250F from a rolling idle, rap the throtle once pretty good and it just bogs out. from a rolling idle gradual throtle runs fine. Idles fine now that we've cleaned the carb and got the slide plate...

Your symptom screams out that the accelerator pump isn't working.
The carbies on these bikes have an accellerator pump set-up that squirts fuel down the center of the carby throat as you hit the accelerator & your symptom is exactly what hapens when it's not working.

To test this - remove the carby & re-connet it to the fuel line(& turn the fuel on) while holding it upright next to the bikes tank(to supply fuel to the carby).
Now opperate the throttle cam(or also re-connect the cables & use the throttle).
As you go from no throttle to full throttle fuel should squrt out the front of the carby.
If it dosn't then the pump is not working & is the cause of the problem.
Rectify this & the bike will scream again.

I hope this is helpfull- check the pump & if it's working good then let me know & I'll see what I can suggest

Bike sputters with no throtle when trying to start. If any throtle or choke is used bike will not sputter at all. If starting fluid is used bike will start. I've changed plugs ,new gas and cleaned air...

Check/replace inline fuel filter. Put a fuel injector/carb cleaner fluid in the tank and run it through, this will clean any build up that may be in carbs/injectors.
If problem is still persisting then you'll need to get carbs/injectors removed for cleaning and resetting. Hope this helps, let me know how you get on.

My bike starts fine but my throtle doesn't respond when i rev it

Sounds like a bit of trash plugging the main jet. This is not a major repair. Just pull the carb off and remove the float bowl. Clean the bowl then remove the main jet & blow it out. reasemble the carb then go riding. P.S. The main jet is a small brass fitting in the center of the carb. It screws into the body of the carb. A single drill hole runs through the jet.
