@ strokes reving suddenly on their own is usually a sign of an air leak. Commonly at the crank case, reeds (reed block), Intake manifold (rubber split), magento side crank seal, CARB CAP.... If no obvious leak, have it leak down tested.

If this is a two stroke,then if you have run it out of fuel,there is no lubrication for the piston and you may have damaged the piston or piston rings,check the compression,esay test is remove sprk plug pit your finger hard into the hole and crank the bike over,if your finger gets pushed off with loud crack sound then compression should be ok,but if it doesnt and the preesure is very weak then you will be looking at a top end rebuild,hope this helps

When i go to put my yamahasr185 into first gear the bike shuts off i tried adjusting the clutch what am i missing

If you mean that the engine cuts out when you release the clutch (trying to ride away) then check the sidestand switch. This is fitted so when you attempt to ride off with the sidestand down the engine cuts out and is located next to the sidestand under the bike. If it is gunked up with road grime it will stick in the activated position. Wipe it clean and drench with WD40

2008 Ducati S4RS dry clutch either sticks or doesn't disengage when I pull the clutch in riding, and sometimes I can't get the bike out of gear unless I stalling the motor while in gear.

Check to ensure the hydraulic mechanism is working properly and hasn't leaked. If it has leaked or there is air in the system, it wont allow the clutch to disengage properly and would be akin to a clutch cable being out of adjustment or broken. If the yydraulic release is working as it should be, you may have oil fouled clutch plates. Oil fouled plates would cause the bike to jump/lurch from a stop and could also stick together.

Im having shifting/clutch problems on my bike. when i shift down to stop my bike it will go to neutral and wont go into first gear,i really have to try hard. my clutch leaver becomes so stiff i can barely...

The shifting problem is a bent shift fork. The clutch problem is chatter on the outer, and/or inner, clutch hub and fiber friction plates. The friction plates are catching in grooves worn into the clutch hub by the friction plate tabs. The hub should be smooth. I created a diagram of the shift system and of the clutch to give you an idea of how they work. Please rate my answer. Thanks. tombones49_67.gif

Chirping noise when i ride, but goes away when i pull in the clutch

i would say check your bearing, something like this is hard to finger out without being next to the bike. Dose it get louder the faster you go? Dose the bike want to pull when your stopped witht he clutch in??

Rear wheel locked while riding, gearbox seems fine as it will go into neutral and through the other gears. Kickstart now wont go down as it seems jammed ?

sounds like you have something lose or broken in gearbox..or clutch or kickstart workings.....i would not ride this bike till you know for sure whats up & its fixed!!....1st thing to try is take clutch cover off & inspect to see if you can see anything broke ..this does need pulling down to sort as the bike may well do again when riding may even need to pull the gearbox.cluster out/in bits to check..this means engine out & pull in bits......

How often for valce cleance on wr250f

it depends on how you ride the bike.. If you are constantly ridding it wide open you should check them more often.. but the usual time to check them would be around every ten or so hours.. if the bike dont want to start for you the valves are probally tight so check them
