Have you checked the distributor? Open the dissy cap and check the ignition points, if they're very dirty this may cause them to miss. Also check the spark leads for any cracks, as this can cause the spark to arc to the chassis and not the plug, I've seen this a couple of times. Hope this helps!

How do you know it's running on only 4 cylinders? If it is then most likely spark plugs or wires and possibly injectors.

Replace both of your spark plug caps. They are available after market (NGK brand) for about $5 each. Simply unscrew the old ones off of the end of the wires and screw the new ones on. When a spark plug cap burns out the 5000 OHM resister the motorcycle will stop firing on that cylinder.

Just got my self a 2005 kx250f was runing fine one day and now i cant start it changed air filter spark plug and cleand the carb it back fies alot

The valves probably need adjusting. This should be done periodically with four stroke dirt bikes. When my bike's valves need adjusting, it kills me trying to kick it, and it backfires a lot.

Another symptom I have noticed for valves that need adjustment is when I pull in the clutch sometimes, the bike will stall.

Hope this helps.

2006 model mechanich states only 5 cylinders running but to fix it must replace all 6 cylinders not just the one. Any advise? One cylinder has been replaced it was the #3 whch was not working.

please explain to me how to replace a cylinder without removing the engine block.
I can see mybe a spark plug, spark plug wire, or a coil pack
but removing a cylinder or even a piston, impossiable

your machanic is an idiot

to solve your problem of runing rough
have someone with enough commen sense to do a full tune-up and full filter change

Not running on 4 cylinders . changed coil pack injectors new leads unplug tps sounds a little bit better plug back in an runs very rough

Check each cylinder using a timing light.
Check each cylinder using a noid test tool
If the light flashes while the engine is runing the spark to the cylinder is good.
If the noid lights up while the engine is running the fuel injectors are good.

Not runing

switch plug wires and see if the dead cylinder starts firing --if it does you need new wires
