Rm 250 starting issues


This may help you determine the problem.
1. is sprkplug oil fouled? wet? dry? superhot and white electrode?
A sparkplug will always tell you whats going on.
if its too wet then its not burning all the fuel and oil and flooding out.
if its extremely hot and white, then its running lean , and needs more fuel.
also make sure your running 50:1 fuel oil mix.
a hot two stroke is hard to start.
if plug is dry, then its not getting enough fuel.

2. make sure your fuel oil mixture is 50:1.
to much oil is okay but it may smoke alot
way to much oil will oil foul the plug and plug will have oil on it.
to little oil will make the bike run hot and start damaging the bottom end crank bearings as well as your rings , then piston and cylinder walls.
the plug will be whitish and hot.

3. as for the timing , the rotor is resting on a keyway on the crankshaft and will only move out of time if the keyway is sheared.

4. make sure you have good spark when bike wont start.
a coil that is going bad will work cold but may not when it gets warmed up

to sum it up check to make sure you have correct fuel mixture
check you sparkplug to see how its burning
make sure you have good spark

if you have good spark, good fuel, good compression, then it should start within 2 kicks everytime.
i have a blaster 2 stoke 4 wheeler, starts everytimesince i rebuilt it.
i hope this helps you out and you can enjoy the rest of the summer with your dirtbike.
best regards

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 1984 honda goldwing gl1200 interstate wont start and it gets fuel and spark.


fuel, fire, timing, and compression. Check those last two.Make sure spark is blue,and that battery is full.If the compression is in question you could temporarily boost it by using oil on top of the piston to make compression higher .

The bike wont start! seems to have good compression, and fire. the timimg mark is lining up at tdc but with a shot of starting fluid i have gotten a flame thru the carb! oh, and the valves have been...


If your XR600 has ever sat for more than just a few months, there's a very good chance that the carburetor is plugged with fuel varnish. This means that the carb will have to be disassembled and cleaned.
A big four cycle engine like your's may "feel" like it has good compression, but it may not have what it takes to start and run. Check the compression. With the throttle wide open and a few good kicks of the starter, you've got to see at least 140 psi of compression. Anything below that and it isn't going to start or run reliably. If the compression is low, the first thing to do is re-check the valve tappet clearances. Insufficient tappet clearance will cause low compression. Also make sure the kickstart-actuated compression release is not hanging up and causing compression loss after the kick start lever is returned to its parked position. If the valves are properly adjusted and the compression is still low, then internal engine repairs are needed.

Bike wont kick over


do u have any spark at the spark plug. When the kill switch is faulty it won't give any spark try disconnecting. sometimes this kill switch grounds itself or the contacts stay closed. For it to have sparks contacts should be opened. This kill switch grounds the coil so the engine stops running
