Question about 2003 Honda Xr 250
Kicking over is the action of moving the engine with the kick-starter. I will presume it kicks over but does not fire at all.
It really sounds like flooding.
Drain the carb, and disable fuel delivery. If the shutoffs are vacuum operated pull that line and put a golf tee in it. If manual, turn to off.
Remove the plug, and turn the engine over enough to be sure the insides are dry.
Out the plug back in, and give it a shot of starer fluid (careful with that stuff!), and try to start it. If it shows some signs of life, then you almost certainly are flooding.
Use a syringe to put a dose of fuel in the carb through the float chamber vent. Make sure it is not too much. Again, give it a little shot of starter fluid, and see if it will start and run sustained a little as it feeds on the gas you put into the carb. If it will, your float and needle change either was done incorrectly, or the float height was not adjusted right.
