You need to just top doing what your doing, your cam timing is off and the valve is touching the piston.

If unfamiliar with 4 strokes, I suggest you let a dealer do the repairs. There is a whole world of things you can mess up on; cam mount torque, cam chain timing, sprocket positioning relative to cam lobe position, etc...

Just got my self a 2005 kx250f was runing fine one day and now i cant start it changed air filter spark plug and cleand the carb it back fies alot


The valves probably need adjusting. This should be done periodically with four stroke dirt bikes. When my bike's valves need adjusting, it kills me trying to kick it, and it backfires a lot.

Another symptom I have noticed for valves that need adjustment is when I pull in the clutch sometimes, the bike will stall.

Hope this helps.

Kick start has no compression but runs fine once i get it going


Does it feel like yhe kick is even engaging and turning the crankshaft? Are you full stroking/kicking it over or short stroking it? when cold, are you using the choke. I suggest taking a compression test when it feels as if it hs no compression It could be undersized piston, rings, or a simple. good luck
