SOURCE: Why is my kick starter ceasing?

I have same bike and know some about it. and i race a lot. your bike has a crank or rod whatever you want to call it but it could be cracked, broke, or even could have dirt on it.

SOURCE: no idle &bacfires on deceleration

hi mate on the carb you will find 2 screw 1 is for the idle and the over is for mixture the idle one will be the furthest out screw it in 1/4of a turns will the engine is running this will take the idle up on the engine and the backfiring is fuel in the exhaust not being burnt so on the over screw on the carb screw that in 1/4 of turns this will decrease the amount of fuel going into the engine if it still backfires screw it in 1/4 of turns again and see what difference it makes good luck

I had the same problem on my RMZ 250, RMZ and kxf is excactly the same engin. You need to take to your kawasaki shop so the can check and adjust your valve clearances, your bike will be amazing after that

SOURCE: 2007 KXF 250 electrical problem

when the ignition parts like the coil and the transistors in the cdi unit gets warmed up they dont work as well as when there cool,,,so a problem thats not there when cold will be there when its hot,,,,if the stator has a small fault in it when cold when it gets hot it turns into a big fault! the best way to find this fault is by swoping one part at a time till you fine the faulty part,,,or put it into the bike shop and pay through the knows for the fix? have you a friend with the same type of bike you could swop the parts with??? it a big big help if you have! i would start with the coil then the cdi unit,,,there the most likley parts to play up when they get to hot they go faulty!

Have you checked for a spark? or done a compression test? You may need to adjust the idle screw or tick over screw slightly 1/4 turn at a time (remember where you started.)

2004kx250f won't kick start, can push start. popping when decelerating, won't idle

idle jet has probably got blocked, there are two jets, an idle and a main, when your bump starting it is most likely using the main jet and when you decreas the throttle it is coming onto the blocked idle jet. take the idle jet out of the carb and check it.
