Usually, a leaking carb is because either the float is set too high, or there is some crud stuck between the float's needle valve and it's seat.
Either one will not allow the float/needle valve to shut off the flow of gas when the float bowl get's full.

This should be your carb:

The floats are the 2 large square items on #5 on the illustration.
Item #3 is the float needle valve.
Item #4 is the needle valve's seat.

Are you adding oil to the gas? (32/1 = 4 ounces per gallon)
Do you still have spark? Install a new stock spark plug.
Clean the carb, but follow these steps >

Remove the carburetor from the engine.
Remove the float bowl and clean the entire carb with a spray carb cleaner from the auto parts store. Wear protective goggles to avoid getting spray in your eyes. Spray into all the little airways and fittings in the carb. Remove the two screws on the outside throat of the carb and spray into the screw holes as well.
< < READ CLOSELY > >
Be sure to put these two screws back in the same hole they came out of. IMPORTANT > do not tighten these two screws down. Only screw these in until they LIGHTLY seat. Now turn each screw one and one half turns outward. Put the rest of the carb back together, clean the air filter and install the carb. Let the float bowl fill then start the engine. Let the bike warm up then set the idle speed. This process should get you back on the road.

Ave got a ktm 125sx 02 bike wont start with a kick but will start with a bump easy and ave chanced the coil plug and ht cap and when running has plenty of power and got compresson any ideas


unfortunately the most cmmn cause for a bike not starting ff the kick start but starting with a bump is being too low on compression,although to you foot it may feel like enough it does need to be nearly 100% as high as it should be to kickstart.the easiest way to check the condition of the piston is to take the exhaust off and look up the port in the barrel ,it is usually the exhaust side of the piston that gets damaged as it gets hotter.good luck.Adam

Kickstart has no compression


no compression
has the spark plug come loose,
could be bust piston, rings or valves,
right googled it, its a 2 stroke no valves,
moving on, your have to remove the head and barrell to see whats gone, the piston or the rings. its probably the rings.
its not as hard as it sounds on a 2 stroke so even a novice could do it.

My kx 60 wont kickstart but it will bump start


Sounds like low compression. Do a compression test,and it should have at least 90psi,..if not,its time to rebuild the top end..(piston,rings,bore)...pretty common for two strokes.

Damaged or broken rings or a damaged bore are the most likely You should be able to tell by removing the exhaust & looking into the engine while turning it over slowly

My 1996 xr 250r wont start drom the kickstart but it will start if you pushstart it can any one help me??


Hi
If the kick-start is seized or lacks resistance when you try to turn it then the mechanism will have to be investigated
If the kick-start feels normal, the spark is good when kicking her over & the performance is well down then there is probably a lack of compression

1974 honda scrambler wont kick start their is nothing their whats wong with it and my start button is no good so i got a bike that wont go anywhere


You have probably sheered off the teeth that engage the kick start with the gearbox, else ( more commonly ) the spline in the kickstart lever has worn out and is slipping on the input shaft.
You should still be able to bump start your bike ( in second) .
All the relevant broken bits are on the right side of the engine, I would remove the kick start lever and remove the right crankcase cover for a look.
You should still be able to get bits for your bike, they are getting collectable and some parts interchange across models.

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!
