I have a 2010 kx250f it runs mint but today it would no start i kick it over like 30 time and befor it took 1 kick now it wont even start ?

The engine is probably flooded with too much gas. Every time the throttle is twisted, a shot of gas goes into the cylinder. Don't twist the throttle so much. Once or twice should be all that is needed.

What is the button on top of my clutch do. not the kill switch the othere thing

Do you mean the little tiny lever joined to the clutch perch ( has a cable leading to it?) if so this is the hot start lever. You use it like the choke ( but when bike is hot! ) it changes air fuel mix for easier starting but if you never use it then thats great no need to start now if all working out for just give it a go one day when bike is hot and being painful to restart...

I have an 07 kx250f when i try to kickstart it when its cold it takes about 50-75 kicks and will throw a flame out of the exhaust every few kicks but when its warm it only takes two or three kicks at the...

Are you certain your choke enricher cable is actually working ....sounds like the carb is too lean for a cold start, usually the choke richens mixture till engine warms and can tolerate normal mixture.

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
