Bottom line is it needs some attention. Remove the tank and flush out the rust, water and any trash in it. Remove the fuel valve assembly from the tank and clean the wire mesh filter screen. Drain the carburetor. There should be a screw on the lower side of the carb float bowl. Remove the screw then thoroughly clean and replace it after the fuel drains. Turn the gas back on and wait a minute for the carb to fill with gas. Install a new stock NGK spark plug and try to start the engine. If the bike doesn't start and run properly then shut off the gas and 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 idle screw and the air screw 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 adjusters down. Only screw these in until they LIGHTLY seat. Now turn each adjuster 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. This process should get you back on the road. Please top rate this answer.

Bike wont kick start or idle , it will coast


first drain the carby, then set your air mixture screw 2 turns out, from the fully turned in position. The starting proceedure is as follows, when the engine is COLD, turn on fuel, pull on the choke fully, and kick the engine over. DO NOT use any throttle, when the engine is cold, and the choke is on. Remember Choke on, NO throttle.
When warm, no choke, and a little throttle when kicking.

My 2005 kx125 runs well for approx an hour,then bogs out and wont start again.


If its running for about an hour before trouble,there is not a lot wrong.Have a real good look to see it has the correct spark plug.This doesn't mean the original type but by looking at the plug and its colors it may be the wrong heat range.This is often the case with different styles of riding and any mods done to the bike.Next ride,take another plug with you.When the bike stops,put the other plug straight in and see if that gets you going.This would be the 1st place to start looking for the fix to your problem.Hope this helps

Basicaly brand new cr25o mx bike wont start


Assuming you are using fresh gas. Check to see if gas is coming out of the line, if not blow back up into the tank and if that works there's dirt in the tank. Check the spark by removing the plug and kicking it over with the plug touching the engine, look for spark. If no spark, try a new plug, if still no spark, you have a stator problem. It wouldn't hurt to clean the air filter in any case. Good luck!
