No fuel for Honda XR250r

Hey guys, I've just pulled my XR out of storage and i have have gave it a good service, giving it a new lease on life. I have just tried to start it but it shows no signs of firing. It has good spark and compression, but my spark plug is bone dry. Just wondering if anyone can give me ideas on what and how to check with the carby?

    Yes, I had aready checked that, then I flushed the tank and put new fuel lines on. I think the problem is inside the carby.

Your bike needs a barb clean,most likly it has a clogged pilot jet,and poss. need to replace float valve assy. when gas goes bad from unit sitting in storage it turns to nasty smelling green guo. you need to clean this out. Put fuel stabbleizer in tank next time you store it and drain float bowl so you don't have this time.

Xr 350 timing chain slop makes noise can i adjust it

Both the 1985 honda xr250r and xr350 look loke they have self adjusting cam chain tensioners. You may have a broken tensioner or tensioner guide. With the age of the bike you may need a new cam chain. There is nothing to adjust so you need to just figure out if the chain is stretched , if a guide is broken, or if the tensioning mechanism is malfunctioning.

Pulled the pin bolt instead of drain plug

Sorry. I'm very certain you can't fix your problem without splitting the case. I would be cautious about running the motor at all. When you removed that bolt those pieces are free to fall down to the bottom of the case to interfere and do damage. Good Luck.
