I want to fully disassemble my XT 250 2008 model. Please give me a link that i can just follow step by step procedure on this problem of mine. thank you

Go to a dealer and purchase a factory service manual. They may need to order it but doing a teardown without one is foolish. I really fear you are getting into a project beyond what you expect. If the bike is shifting properly the gearbox does not need to be opened up. The kickstart and clutch can be serviced by just removing the right side case cover. By the way, some special tools are needed to engine repairs.

2 year old Jonway 125cc bike cuts out and kickstart fails

check first if spark plug working you can see spark light on it upon kickstart. then proceed with the gas carburetor if gas intake working and not stuck. if no power goes to spark plug trace the source. first the cdi then the ignition coil and the voltage regulator.

I left the bike in my garage and now it wont start, what could i do?

hi friend,
Step 112230_65x95_aspect.jpg
Move switch to ON position
Locate your dirt bikes OFF/ON, RUN/OFF, or START Switch. Use your finger to move the switch to the RUN, ON, or START position.
  • Step 212233_65x95_aspect.jpg Turn fuel switch ONLook on the side of your dirt bike near the engine and locate the "FUEL ON/OFF" switch. Use your finger to move the lever to the "ON" position. Your dirt bike will not start if the fuel is turned off. This off switch helps prevent fuel leaks when your dirt bike is stored.
  • Step 312234_65x95_aspect.jpg Turn choke ONIf your dirt bike engine isn’t warm, you will need to turn the choke on to start the bike. Locate the choke lever near the engine on the side of your dirt bike, probably not far from the "FUEL ON/OFF" switch. Use your finger to move the choke lever to the on position. Once your dirt bike has started and the engine has warmed up, you will need to move the choke lever to the "off" position.
  • Step 412236_65x95_aspect.jpg Foot on kick start pegBend your knee and place your foot on the kick start peg while leaning your weight on your other foot. Stand slightly and push the kick starter all the way down with as much force as you can.
  • Step 512239_65x95_aspect.jpg Push all the way downIf the bike doesn't start after the first attempt to kick start it, try again. Remember to push the peg as far down as it will go with as much of your weight as possible.
  • jQuery('.article ol .image').each(function(i,e){ var $this = jQuery(this); $this.find('img').error(function(){ jQuery(this).remove(); $this.remove(); }); }); Tips & Warnings
    • If your dirt bike has a four-stroke compression engine and won't start, release the compression valve and try starting it again.
    • Sometimes, the engine remains in a compressed position and cannot turnover until the pressure is released.
    • If your dirt bike is equipped with an electric-starter, but won't start, you can follow these steps and kick start it.
    • Remember: always wear safety equipment when operating a dirt bike or ATV.
    • You should at least wear a helmet, boots that cover your ankles, and a chest protector to avoid serious injury.
    • Always supervise children when operating motor vehicles.

    Bike will not start on the electric starter which cranks the engine over with lots of enthusiasm and the battery will keep this going longer than you need to figure its not going to fire.The bike starts...

    this sounds like your starter motor turns but slip or does not engage the motor properly .
    you may also have a bad connection which the relay may be faulty and cuts the poiwer to the HT .
    I would say the electrics have to be looked at first and make sure you do have a spark while using the starter motor .
    If not , you have a electric problem like a relay that does not work properly

    It sounds as if you have dirt in your fuel line or some bad gas.
    I would recommend draining your tank and cleaning it, then replace your fuel filter.
