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

2004 Kawasaki KX 250 F no compression


Hi, Anonymous and the usual suspects are:
1. Broken or hole burnt through piston due to spark plug heat range to high or pre-ignition due to the ignition timing too far advanced overheated engine caused by a burnt valve or carbon/metal particle embedded in the cylinder head glowing hot causing abnormal combustion timing.
2. Any bent or broken valve head caused by improper adjustment or sticking/seizing in the valve guide.
3. Broken connecting rod due to bottom end failure.
4. Incorrect cam timing due to either installation error or cam chain malfunction or drive gear failure.
5. Spark plug blew out of head due to improper torque or failed threads.
6. Failed compression release valve or blown out like the spark plug scenario.

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
