Kick starting is sensitive to fresh fuel. Tank should be completely drained

Remove all of the old gas, install a new spark plug and fill with new gas. Get a can of aerosol carbeurator cleaner and squirt it twice near the air intake valve. Crank it and if it starts let it run for a few minutes. If it doesnt start let it sit for a few minutes while the carbeurator cleaner works then squirt cleaner again and start it up again. Keep repeating the cleaner- crank it- let it sit routine until it starts.

Bike only starts with choke on and wont idle .by the way its a ktm 250 xc 2006.air filter is clean and has new plug . wondering about needle adjustments?


If your bike ran good previously - and nothing has been changed that would require rejetting or a needle adjustment, I would look for problems elsewhere. Such as:
Has the bike been stored for more than a few months at a time? If so, the carburetor jets could be plugged with fuel varnish. Only being able to start with the choke applied - and an inability to idle are both classic symptoms of this. Remove and disassemble the carburetor. Clean it and the jets out with carb cleaner and compressed air, then reassemble. Also make sure the fuel in the tank is fresh and that the fuel strainer (usually with the fuel petcock) is clean.
There are three ingredients required for combustion: fuel, compression, and a spark (at the right time). So long as you've got each of these - it has got to run.
