Question about 1997 Honda CBR 250 RR

1 Answer

1991 CBR 250 RR not starting

I have just done all service including change of spark plugs, oil, filter etc. In addition I had to replace the plugs or needles, what ever you call it - 4 small things in the carb, protecting leakage of fuel from the the carb to the engine after stopping (Following day I could not start because the engine was full of fuel).
And now after all this I can not start with or without choke. I did manage it some times when pushing the bike dawn the slope, but that is not convenien and the solution neighter.

Any ideas? thanks

    You requested ideas > Turn the gas off at the fuel valve below the tank when the bike is not being ridden. Check the float levels as they may be too high right now. Are the float needles stuck open?

    Use the choke for only two or three kicks. Crack the throttle when kicking.

    Also, the FixYa system is set up such that your posting disappears once it gets a solution. I am posting this as a clarification. This way the listing will not disappear.

Yeah its with the floats. you need to re do them they arnt stoping the fuel from going in to the motor. make shure that they are going up and down smoothly make shure that the gasket isnt stoping the float.

Sounds electrical, try checking for spark first. Don't ground the plug to the valve cover because it's made of magnesium and will burn a hole thru it. Or at least that's what I've heard.

I am no expert by any means but I had a similar problem. turns out the governor was turned down too low. Everything starts up but dies. Another thing it might be would be the choke. I have this bike and some times the choke gets stuck open and floods the engine.

Hi, Amjasper and the usual suspects are:
1. Insufficient oil level or no oil in engine or tank.
2. Air in oil system that needs to be bled.
3. Blockage in the oil tank or line.
4. Oil pump failure.
5. Faulty oil pressure sending unit.
6. Grounded oil pressure light circuit.

CBR 250 not starting

Sound like you have a fuel problem.Turn the key without starting the bike listen for a slight buzzing noise it will come from where the end of the tank and the seat meet this is the fuel pump priming if you can not hear anything then most likely your fuel pump is not working.Your carbi may have grit in a jet a carbi cleaner can help.
I hope this helps!
