The RM250W has a compression release, but I don't think the RM250 does.
If you have one, is it hooked up?

Also, isn't stock with a FLAT top piston?

HI,,sounds like your plug is fouling,,what pre-mix ratio are you running? and has the carb been played with? run 32-1 premix and remove and clean the carb.

piston and rings are not to blame for this behaviour.

SOURCE: rm 250 wont start off kick

Don't know if it is water cooled or not, but it sounds like you may have a problem with oil or water getting into the combustion chamber and fouling the spark plugs. Kicking doesn't produce the amount of rpm that you need to fire up a weakly firing plug. I'd check the plugs condition first and replace if needed, and then figure out why its smoking.

First thing is check your oil pump if function properly maybe sum damage on rings and pistons in your engine.

2009 rm-z 250 kickstart won't budge


pull the sparkplug[s] spray some PB Blaster inside, then let it set like that for a few days....then try to kick syart without having the ignition on...if it starts turning....then replace fresh plugs and you'll probably needs to spray some ETHER [ starting fluid ] in the intake to compensate for the oil you sprayed inside

2008 rmz 250 4 stroke i was riding it and all of a sudden it cut off and now the kick start wont move but shift through gears just fine i think the top end is locked up i'm not sure could the piston of...


Remove the spark plug, put the bike in fourth or fifth gear then try a jump start but with the key turned off. If the rear wheel locks up when you jump on and release the clutch then the piston has probably seized up OR the kick start-to-clutch hub gearing is messed up. The best thing to do is to remove the left engine side cover and look at the kick start mechanism. You may need to remove the clutch assembly for a full inspection. With the clutch removed the rotor ( crankshaft flywheel ) should turn. If it will not turn then a seized piston, broken cam chain or dropped valve is likely. If the rotor does turn then the kick start mechanism is the problem. Please rate my answer. Thanks!

It will not kick start I have to pushit and get the engine whinding to start it and it bogs


sounds like you have worn out piston and rings, lack of compression.
You need to re build the top end with new piston and rings. Wiseco make a piston kit for your model.
