Possibly throtle is sticking or "hanging-up". Lube and test throttle cable assembly. Make sure you can twist throttle and it snaps back nicely.

Kawasaki KLR 250 takes about 12 goes on kickstarter to start engine from cold. it seems to make maters worse when you use the choke. so i start it without choke but it takes a lot of kicks to start it

I have a riding mower that is similarly stubborn; try this which works for me: - Full choke for one cycle - No choke but full throttle for the next try; it works for me/it.

How many kicks should it take to start a 2003 yamaha yz450f?

One, That thing should fire up in a second, if not, you got to get it so it will. Try not touching the gas, just pull on the choke, and give it a try. If that doesn't do it, try something else next time. I had a KLR 250, kick only, and that thing would start first kick every time, no matter what. I loved that little bike. Hope this helps.

Klr650 2006 not idleing good i have to keep the choke on a little

choke gives it less air more gas. but sounds like when you turn the handlebars you are pulling on the throttle cable somehow. check that it's all run right, if not tru tugging on the wiring harness that runs between the forks there may be some kind of short there,

Engine miss fire and occasional backfire.

Hi and welcome to FixYa,

Initially, a couple of ideas you may want to consider/explore:
  • if still using carbs, then lean air/fuel mixture or if using aftermarket filters such as K&N, then rejetting required;
  • if using injectors, exhaust issue, aftermarket muffles/pipes are installed with no re-mapping done.
Good luck and Thank you for using FixYa.
