Question about 2005 Honda CRF 250 R

1 Answer

My 2005 crf250r wont start by kicking it when its cold. It will roll start but you have to keep the revs up to keep it going. If i turn it off when its hot it still wont start by kicking it. I have replaced the spark plug and just given the air filter a good clean.

    Wow, ok well i took my 06 in to honda, they said hard starts are caused by 2 things valve adjustment or starter jet, they checked the valves, (no adjustment needed) they replaced the starter jet and charged me $160 bucks.

Revs erratically

sounds like the rev limiter is kicking in to keep the engine from over rev damage, there should be a way to get the limiter disabled or perhaps get the turbo building boost sooner.

Starting problem with honda crf250r 09 model when cod or hot

I have a honda crf250 2009 model i recently brought it off a mate. Had the same problem could not get the thing started. Missed races cause of this... I worked out how to get it started. On Cold start, turn the fuel on give the throttle 3 full pumps. Then do not touch it! Put ur hand in the middle of the handlebars if need be. Kick start the bike still may take a couple kicks but on mine its generally about 2-4 kicks. Then through out the day when u want to start it do no twist that throttle it just squirts fuel in and u may as well just pack it up!! I know this is what i have to do not saying yours will be the same but i hope it all works out!!!

2005 crf250r trans oil and funny noise

The water pump seal is maybe gone.This would allow water into the trans.Get it checked and also that the bearing hasn,t spun in its location.This may cause the color change.Being a grey color,it may indicate aluminium in the oil.This may be the spun bearing turning in the housing.With what you wrote,I would get these things looked at.I hope this helps you

Thanks for all the tips on this CRF250R Honda but we are really getting tired of trying to kick start this guy, wearing us out HELP please. We tried cleaning the carb, checked plug for spark & last...

i dont know what all you have tried so far, but check the fuel filter, usally in the tank above petcock. the compression seems fine as you had to bump start it in third gear. you can feel the compression of a bike when pushing it in gear, like a bike with bad compression you could push in first without wheel locking

2005 f150 4x4 wont kick in to overdrive first second third runs fine then when it goes to fourth it starts rev rev

The overdrive system itself may be at fault, it is likely to be bad switch or accumulator that will have to be replaced.
