Change gearbox oil, install a new spark plug. Check for spark before installing the plug. Remove, dis-assemble, and clean the carb by soaking it in denatured alcohol for 15 minutes then finish with a can of spray carb cleaner. Wear goggles to protect your eyes from the spray.
In stall a new air filter. Remove the gas tank and clean it out. Install an in-line fuel filter to prevent trash from the tank getting into the carb. Use a can of spray starting fluid on the air filter to aid in starting.

Can I fit a SUZUKI RM 250 Engine into a 2000 RM 125 frame?


Hi, Anthony sounds like something I would try when I was a kid but after careful deliberation 4 out 5 Suzuki Gods give this one a thumbs down, but just to be on the safe side you should give your local dealer's parts/service department a call to confirm it's just not worth the time trouble and expense you would be better off getting a used 250 bike.

pull the sparkplug[s] spray some PB Blaster inside, then let it set like that for a few days....then try to kick syart without having the ignition on...if it starts turning....then replace fresh plugs and you'll probably needs to spray some ETHER [ starting fluid ] in the intake to compensate for the oil you sprayed inside

I'm having trouble starting my 1985 rm 250 and I


It means that unburned fuel collected in the exhaust pipe then ignited when the spark plug fired due to the rotation of the crankshaft. It also means the spark plug is firing and the cylinder is getting gas... too much gas. The engine is flooding out due to much choking of the carb during kick starting.

Hot starter


4 stroke engines require a leaner than normal fuel/air mixture to start when hot. The cold start choke allows more fuel into the mix. The hot start choke allows more air into the mix.
