Question about 1985 Honda XR 250 R
I have a 1984 Honda xr250r dual carb. My dad brought it when i was a kid but as I grew up, he didnt enjoy riding anymore. The bike stayed in the shed for around 6 years with nothing done to it, not started or anything at all. Recantly, I decided to try fix it up so I can go for trails with my mates. I have replaced the spark plug, cleaned the air filter and changed the oil. I was informed by dad that just before he stopped riding it the bike got new jets, new piston rings and new pistons in it. The bike starts, but after 1 or 2 kicks fuel just starts **** out of the fuel deposit when the bike is not started. When it does get started after a while it calms down and stops but the bike will only idol with the choke on. It blows out alot of white smoke aswell. When the choke is off it will stay started aslong as you keep reving it, but if you stop the revs will lower and it will eventually stall. It does go into gear and you can ride it but no matter what it just sounds dead and somtimes stalls. I havn't pulled the carb out/apart. What can i do to fix this?
Well you can do the idle and maybe fiddle with the mixture screw right on the carb will be a screw and idle screw you need to turn this in 1/4 of a turn at a time with the bike running until it idle ok and the mixture screw you simply just fiddle with this turn it all the way in and unscrew it 2 turn and try this get back to me if not ok
